Abstract: 
Lifelogging is the digital recording of our everyday behaviour in order to identify human activities and build applications that support daily life. Lifelogs represent a unique form of personal multimedia con- tent in that they are temporal, synchronised, multi-modal and composed of multiple media. Analysing lifelogs with a view to supporting content- based access, presents many challenges. These include the integration of heterogeneous input streams from different sensors, structuring a lifelog into events, representing events, and interpreting and understanding lifel- ogs. In this paper we demonstrate the potential of semantic web tech- nologies for analysing lifelogs by automatically augmenting descriptions of lifelog events. We report on experiments and demonstrate how our re- sults yield rich descriptions of multi-modal, multimedia lifelog content, opening up even greater possibilities for managing and using lifelogs.
