Previous work on lifelogging focuses on life event extraction from image, audio, and video data via wearable sensors. In contrast to wearing an extra camera to record daily life, people are used to log their life on social media platforms. In this talk, I will show how to extract life events from textual data shared on Twitter and construct personal knowledge bases of individuals. The issues to be tackled include (1) not all text descriptions are related to life events, (2) life events in a text description can be expressed explicitly or implicitly, (3) the predicates in the implicit events are often absent, and (4) the mapping from natural language predicates to knowledge base relations may be ambiguous.
