Thursday 8th March, Collins Building CL201, Richmond Street

Wendy Moncur, School of Computing at the University of Dundee

Wendy's research addresses the awkward question of what happens to peoples online data after they die - a question that technology designers have largely avoided until now. This data lies scattered across the virtual landscape, consisting of emails, photos, social network site interactions and more. Such data can have emotional, financial and intellectual significance, yet it may be inaccessible to inheritors. In this seminar, Wendy will explain what some of the current problems are, describe the planned research, and highlight the potential impacts it may have.
