Digital Brain Research

This document is a living collection of notes taken as I continue to explore the landscape of Digital Brains / Knowledge Engines / Memex systems. I am particularly interested in how we can extract meaningful knowledge from the massive amounts of data we are exposed to on a regular basis, through the means of a trusted and expandable knowledge engine. Anyone can comment on the doc with new suggestions or contact me at yosefserkez@gmail

Digital Brain Projects spanning from resource collection (pocket) to full fledged memex tools (Memex - dev)

Remembrance agent: a program which augments human memory by displaying a list of documents which might be relevant to the user's current context.

Memex : A theoretical device in which individuals would compress and store all of their books, records, and communications.

Information Ontology: an ontology is a way of showing the properties of a subject area and how they are related, by defining a set of concepts and categories that represent the subject.
