17:00 - Wrap Up

For the interactive search challenge, each participant will be given a desk with arranged in a semi-circle around a dedicated network switch to avoid any latency issues. Each team will have developed a prototype interactive lifelog search engine for the dataset. At the front of the room is a large screen upon which the host shows each topic and a real-time scoreboard with countdown clock. Each team has a score which is based on the speed at which they find the known item represented by the search topic. When an item is found they submit it to a central server which checks to see if it is correct and a score is allocated to a team based on how long it took them to find the relevant content and the accuracy of submissions. We expect to process 16 topics within the session with each topic requiring 3 minutes. The topics will be based on a standard Known-Item approach and to ensure fairness, for the challenge, each system will be piloted/operated by a novice user, rather than the system developer.
