18th Intl. Workshop on Personalization and Recommendation on the Web and Beyond
In this paper, we argue that Digital Object Memories in the Internet of Things are closely related to partial user models in Personalization and that research can gain insights by analogy from both sides. We describe UbisMemory, a Semantic Web middleware for partial user models and digital object memories. We describe the content representation, the service and its technical issues. We argue that Digital Object Memories can be extended and merged with “Digital User Memories” or life-long user models. We argue that Life-Logging for objects and for humans are closer related than expected.
