in Poster, Microsoft Research Summer School Cambridge

Abstract

Sharing and exploring digital content across multiple devices is still a complex task, involving tedious setups, setting access rights, and more. Although most of our digital devices are connected to the internet, they do not communicate to each other when in close proximity, nor are they aware of each other's presence.

Curating historic documents and artefacts, as well as sorting through various collections of data is a demanding task, requiring collecting, reviewing, and combining a large diversity of raw material from different sources and of varying types.
