Information analytics gives us the tools to see inside large datasets, revealing patterns, trends, and hidden insight. Shouldn’t we have the same tools to explore the most important data in our lives—our personal data?


Taking personal photos has never been easier and because of it our personal photo albums continue to grow at a staggering rate. Kioku offers a new way of exploring our memories using powerful analytical tools. Kioku allows users to see their photos in ways they never have before, giving them the ability to explore their personal photo collections in many dimensions simultaneously. Have you ever wondered what every birthday from the past five years looked like sorted by your best friends, number of ”likes”, and color? Now you can find out. Life isn’t a timeline. Let your memories come alive.

Kioku was possible with the help of Akira Shibata, Andrew Childs, and many others.
