At Seventh Sense Software we are developing a revolutionary new type of electronic journal which will evolve with time to become a vast, highly-organised repository of knowledge, replacing the existing e-journals which merely archive, but do not process or assimilate submitted research papers or articles.
A related project is the Knowledge Tree Project. By developing knowledge databases in accordance with a natural bi-hierarchical structure developed at Seventh Sense Software, extremely powerful queries can be made. These queries can automatically generate articles, textbooks or even suggest course curricula by extracting the relevant information from an associated knowledgebase.
These concepts have been implemented in 'Knowledge Buddy', a software-based 'hyperbook' currently under development and which will be made commercially available in due course. This will be of value to students, teachers, educationists, technical authors, scientific researchers, journal archivists, and anyone interested in the classification of knowledge.
