Your knowledge, your memories are what define you, they are essential to your life and success. Unfortunately our memories are imperfect, think about what you can actually remember from your last book, paper, lecture or web article, think about how much you have forgotten, the missed opportunities and the loss of so much.
It's not your fault: learning is hard, our minds have simply not evolved to keep information we only see once or twice. To remember we must normally review a number of times, ideally at specifically set intervals of time. And there lies the problem: how often and at what times should we review something in order to burn it permanently into our memories? It's a tricky problem but one ideally suited to a computer... a computer running Mindburn.
