IBM Labs: PENSIEVE Software to Augment Memory via Mobile Phone: "With the personal memory organizer, everything becomes more...memorable"
Made in IBM Labs: IBM Research Develops Technology to Aid Human Memory: New Software Helps People Struggling with Information Overload
From the IBM press release:
- "Researchers at IBM's Haifa Research Lab in Israel are pairing advanced mobile technologies with memory cues to develop a system that can analyze acquired data, create hooks to related experiences, and use them to populate a person's information management applications. Once the address books and calendars are updated, the technology enables memory recall triggered by time, location or the introduction of related information."
"With the personal memory organizer, everything becomes more...memorable"
This software might also be useful for people with ADD, those who have memory deficits due to brain injury or stroke, aging baby boomers, and the elderly.
