ComicDiary: Representing Individual Experiences in a Comics Style
This paper describes a system called ComicDiary that automatically creates a personal diary in a comics style. ComicDiary is built as a sub-system of our ongoing project (C-MAP) to develop a personal guidance system for exhibition touring at museums, trade shows, academic conferences, cities, and so on. The aim of the C-MAP system is to provide users with personalized guidance according to temporal and spatial situations as well as individual interests. ComicDiary is designed as a casual tool for augmenting an individual user’s memory as well as for encouraging communities of users to exchange personal memories. This paper presents the preliminary results of deploying the ComicDiary system as a digital assistant service for conference participants.
