Prof. Corina Sas will give a talk on her work on memory technologies supporting the capture, recall and forgetting of episodic events. The talk will outline the different cues that we have explored and developed, and argues for the value of integrating the traditional cues focusing on the external environment with internal cues reflecting sensorial experiences and feelings. The talk concludes with a critique of the total recall paradigm and its limited support for the memory process of forgetting.
