Abstract

We describe two mashups based on context data and multimedia content retrieved from a client application running on mobile devices. This information is processed by our Context Aware Platform that provides specific APIs to deliver context data to our mashups. First of all, these APIs enable context tagging of pictures and videos acquired by the users. Machine tags are adopted in order to enable context-filtered representation of pictures and videos on our content management system. Moreover, platform APIs are used to gather context information that is analyzed by ad-hoc clustering algorithms to detect the users' daily actions. We therefore automatically generate structured blog posts that describe the users' day. The same information is represented as video blogs, too.
