Having good mentors and role models is important for personal growth. Knowledge, advice, and inspiration from people a person admires can help motivate people when making life choices. Empirical research has shown that having a role model and insights from a mentor can positively affect the performance and progression of a person's career. However, such advice is not always available from the right people at the right time. Some of our personal heroes have passed away leaving only their writings and other artifacts. We present Wearable Wisdom, a context-aware, audio-based system in a glasses form factor for mediating wisdom from personal mentors to users. Our novel system offers just-in-time knowledge, advice, and inspiration from these mentors, based on the user's inquiry and current context. It does so by performing automated semantic analysis of the mentors' written text and selecting the most relevant quote to the user's inquiry.
