dataspects minimizes the mental overhead wasted when using knowledge. If people need to

  • study a subject,
  • learn a skill or
  • master an activity,

they need to reach usefully prepared knowledge as easily and quickly as possible.

The way they do this is by traveling through a web of aspects starting with an intuitive and spontaneous statement.

Here's an example: if Bob wanted to change a printer cartridge, he might state:

"change printer cartridge"

which represents the first thing that his brain comes up with if someone asked him at once "What's your issue at hand right now?".

Now dataspects, just like a person, makes assumptions about the goal that the statement "change printer cartridge" could in fact imply.

So in this case, dataspects assumes that "change" refers to an activity that can be performed on a "cartridge" which seems to be related to some "printer".

Because dataspects has contextual understanding and knowledge regarding this statement, it decides to ask Bob for clarifying his statement like this:

  • Do you mean one of these printers?
    - OKI B411d at Office Location "Reitergasse 6"
    - Samsung at Office Location "Lagerstrasse 82"
  • Or do you mean other printers?
  • Or do you mean something else than printers?

If Bob selects "OKI B411d", dataspects will look up an article serving this specific and limited purpose of changing the printer cartridge for the printer OKI B411d. That article could also be an externally managed information source, such as
