The final chapter describes future research and technology for curation. Personal archives will continue to grow as new types of personal data and systems play even greater roles in our everyday lives. As a result, we believe that users will confront even greater challenges of organizing their personal information. The chapter first assesses emerging technology, including lifelogging and machine learning, as well as automatic organization of personal information. It outlines requirements for new PIM theory and new methods.

Keywords:   Emerging technology, extended personal archives, machine learning, automatic data collection, theory, methods
