Lifelogging: el fenómeno de las “cajas negras” personales

Palabras clave: Gestión de información personal, Lifelogging, Yo cuantificado, Gestión del conocimiento, Computación ubicua, Autoseguimiento, Inteligencia ambiental, Informática personal, Computación en la nube, Riesgos.

Resumen

El lifelogging permite a las personas el registro digital de numerosos aspectos de la propia vida diaria. Traducido como “registro de las actividades vitales”, suele practicarse con diversos grados de detalle y para una amplia variedad de propósitos. Es un registro continuo que actúa como apoyo a la memoria o incluso como sustituto de ella, y que constituye así, de alguna manera, una “caja negra”, exhaustiva y rigurosa, de ciertas actividades cotidianas. Ofrece, en consecuencia, un gran potencial para extraer conocimiento sobre cómo vivimos. Aunque la “captura total” parece por ahora irrealizable, sí es posible generar registros que, a pesar de ser inevitablemente parciales o fragmentados, resultan de gran utilidad en un buen número de escenarios en los que una persona puede inferir conocimiento sobre sí misma para su propio beneficio. Pero se debe tener presente que el almacenamiento de estos datos personales en espacios remotos presenta ciertos riesgos y debe entonces considerarse con cautela.
