The complexity of the existing knowledge landscape means the search and discovery process is reliant on accessing many different portals and networks in turn, using convoluted search processes. This is laborious and prone to key information being overlooked. Furthermore, dozens of ground-breaking developments published on academic portals and open journals every day are not being featured in the mainstream media. This means many people are simply not aware of such key innovations.
The existing array of research papers and research data are not being tapped into sufficiently due to expensive paywalls, lack of awareness and/or poor online accessibility.
The very concept of Mindzilla is to centralise access by:
Innovations and breakthroughs rely on establishing new connections and links that evade the boundaries and conceptual traps of existing associations. However, most A.I. systems are designed to focus on finding similarities through efficiency of learning and repeating patterns.
We know bright ideas, new insights and innovations are not held only by those in academic or research institutions. However, access to funding in the research world has traditionally and still is largely restricted to such institutions or to those with plenty of their own resources.
Today, it is nearly impossible to see the real world through the whirlpool of badly framed stories, incomplete analysis, self-serving content, fake news and poor accessibility to specialist information.
