Learning from Human Memory: Managed Forgetting and Contextualized Remembering for Digital Memories

Claudia Niederée
2015 International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries  
In the human brain, forgetting is a very effective way of focusing on the important things, while unstressing irrelevant details. In the ForgetIT project, we use forgetting and other processes in the human brain -such as the context-driven reconstruction of memories -as an inspiration for creating intelligent methods for joint information and preservation management. In this paper, we present selected results of the ForgetIT project with a special focus on the concept of managed forgetting in digital memories and on personal preservation.
