Now If I Can Only Remember Where I Put the Pensieve...

From Computerworld:

IBM software acts as human memory backup
Application collects and organizes images, sounds and text from everyday life for later use

July 31, 2008 (Computerworld) Ever try to remember who you bumped into at the store a few days back? Or exactly what the company president said at the morning meeting?

Well, you're not alone. And IBM researchers are working on software that just may help you better recollect all the forgotten pieces of your life.

This week, the company unveiled software that uses images, sounds and text recorded on everyday mobile devices to help people recall names, faces, conversations and events. Dubbed Pensieve, the software organizes bits of collected information, stores them and then helps the user extract them later on.
