Exploring Intuitive Lifelog Retrieval and Interaction Modes in Virtual Reality with vitrivr-VR
The multimodal nature of lifelog data collections poses unique challenges for multimedia management and retrieval systems. The Lifelog Search Challenge (LSC) offers an annual evaluation platform for such interactive retrieval systems. They compete against one another in finding items of interest within a set time frame. In this paper, we present the multimedia retrieval system vitrivr-VR, the latest addition to the vitrivr stack, which participated in the LSC in recent years. vitrivr-VR leverages the 3D space in virtual reality (VR) to offer novel retrieval and user interaction models, which we describe with a special focus on design decisions taken for the participation in the LSC.
