Why Mindzilla Exists

The current knowledge landscape has evolved over hundreds of years, fuelled by a huge diversity of journals, publishers and networks. This has made it vast and complex to navigate, hampered by a wide range of accessibility challenges and paywalls.

Connecting the world’s knowledge is now becoming a reality.

Our team has gathered years of research and observations on how people access and discover knowledge.

They have gained a deep understanding of the limitations and frustrating experiences of information networks and precisely what is needed to overcome them.

Now Mindzilla has evolved with this knowhow and new technologies to aim its sights at overcoming the identified barriers to knowledge discovery and sharing, not just within science, but across all knowledge disciplines.

Our Story

Mindzilla was founded by two experienced technology entrepreneurs and biomedical scientists Tim El-Sheikh and Teacha Hamilton.
They built a model of a human-like cognitive “brain nebula” system, called Nebuli®, which is applying the brain’s unique model of encoding, storing and retrieving data.
This system builds data mosaics (or memory blocks) from any data sources: documents, databases, podcasts, videos and more.
Key market opportunities were identified very quickly and the two founders secured a series of seed investments totalling $1.36 million Investment.
The two founders have put together a team of highly experienced business and finance professionals, world-leading mathematicians (including Prof. Aleksandr Gorban) and renowned blockchain developers.
