she/he is... By "meet again" we understand either in person or by any communication means

(phone call, mail, etc.). We propose a system that would hint you in such situations - by giving

context of last encounter with that person. This may also include your own notes on him/her.

General idea are "reminders" about last encounter with person presenting saved user info (notes)

person emotional state (Of course if there is a suitable sentiment analysis method for

communication medium - e.g. it is easy for e-mails and somehow harder but still possible for

view captured by google glass).
