I am currently a PhD student who's thesis title is "Telling Life Stories from Social Media Content".

The approach I am taking looks at identifying and categorising events from a persons social media data.

Given this data, we then look at how we might be able to rank events in terms of how memorable they are for a particular agent, as well as investigate ways we can seek to maximise recall for events by addressing things such as semantic memory, and ordering.

I am also attached to the ReelLives project which looks at doing something very similar. The goal of ReelLives is to create short documentaries that are automatically generated from a persons social media data, using things such as photos, videos and posts.

Keys: semantics,semantic web,reel lives,machine learning,nlp,java,event detection
