The lifelong contextual footprint

• The footprint – the digital traces we create explicitly and
implicitly as we go about our everyday lives at home, at
work and at leisure.
• The contextual – these digital traces enable personal
technologies to infer our activities and provide appropriate
services.
• The lifelong – an inclusive digital society must consider how
these digital footprints are handled throughout our lives,
literally from cradle to grave.
