Personal Semantics


Quantified self, life logging, digital eyeglasses, technology is ad- vancing rapidly to a point where people can gather masses of data about their own persons and their own life. Large-scale models of what people are doing are being built by credit companies, advertising agencies, and national security agencies, using digital traces that people leave behind them. How can individuals exploit their own data for their own benefit? With this mass of personal data, we will need to induce personal semantic dimensions to sift data and find what is meaningful to each individual. In this chapter, we present semantic dimensions, made by experts, and by crowds. We show the type of information that individuals will have access to once lifelogging becomes common, and we will sketch what personal semantic dimensions might look like.
