Cognitive Data Management

  1. 1. How to eliminate most of the effort required to build, maintain, configure or modify data focussed solutions<br />cognitive data management<br />A Presentation <br />
  2. 2. A computer isn’t very smart<br />A computer cannot work anything out for itself<br />A programmer must tell it exactly what to do<br />In intimate, precise, painstaking detail<br />And if you get any part of that wrong they don’t work as required<br />However, once we have told a computer what to do correctly, it can do it over and over millions of times and get it right every time.<br />
  3. 3. But people are smart<br />A person can work things out for themself<br />A person can take a vague idea and work out the rest without needing a program to be written<br />Even if a person makes a mistake they can realise their error and find a way to fix it<br />However, people aren’t very good at repetitive stuff. <br />We change things<br />We lose interest <br />We make mistakes, and <br />We forget things <br />A person CANNOT do something over and over millions of times and get it right every time. <br />People are, in a sense, unreliable (at least when it comes to doing repetitive stuff.)<br />
  4. 4. The best of both worlds<br />The problem is:<br />We don’t want to tell the computer everything in intimate, precise, painstaking detail<br />We want computers to do the creative ‘work-it-out’ stuff like a person<br />We want computers to do the repetitive stuff like a computer<br />So while we want to give computers SOME of the abilities that people have, we do not want to give them all of the traits that people have<br />In order to make computers smarter, we have to reproduce at least some aspects of how the human mind works, working inside a computer...<br />
  5. 5. Spread of Activation<br />A core theory from Cognitive Psychology<br />All ideas and memories are linked either strongly or weakly<br />Spread of Activation is the process the mind follows when searching for something<br />Cafe<br />Lunch<br />Lasagne<br />Mum<br />Coffee<br />Beer<br />Sleep<br />Pillow<br />
  6. 6. Activating ideas and memories<br />In simple terms, when given a starting idea...<br />The mind ‘activates’ all the ideas that are linked to that idea <br />Then it activates all the ideas that are linked to those ideas<br />And then it activates all the ideas that are linked to those ideas <br />And so on until it finds what it needs<br />This way the mind searches through lots of ideas and memories and comes up with the most relevant ones<br />Cafe<br />Lunch<br />Lasagne<br />Mum<br />Coffee<br />Beer<br />Sleep<br />Pillow<br />
  7. 7. Managing ideas and memories<br />Spread of Activation enables people to:<br />automatically store, link, update and retrieve our ideas and memories without considering where they are stored or how they are linked<br />study and learn how something fits together<br />understand rules and how to apply them<br />update all related memories if something changes<br />work with multiple sources of information and understand how they fit together<br />Spread of Activation ‘self-programs’<br />Given a set of rules, morals and prior learning ourmind self programs and updates<br />Freedombase is a software implementation of the Spread of Activation theory<br />
  8. 8. Freedombase Spread of Activation<br />Embraces the ‘good’ aspects of the mind<br />Automatically storing and finding related ‘ideas’ and memories<br />Self learning but in a predictable manner<br />Without the bad aspects of human intelligence<br />Unpredictable and unreliable<br />Freedombase is applied in, or over the top of, databases<br />
  9. 9. Cognitive Data Management<br />Spread of Activation enables Freedombase to:<br />automatically store, link, update and retrieve data without considering where the data is stored or how it is linked<br />study existing databases and learn the data structures and how the data is related<br />understand rules and how to apply them<br />update all related data if something changes<br />work with multiple data sources and understand how they fit together<br />Freedombase ‘self-programs’<br />Given a set of business rules Freedombase effectively self-programs and updates without needing any code to be written<br />Freedombase manages the data in databases using the same cognitive process we use to manage our ideas and memories<br />
  10. 10. Benefits of Freedombase<br />Freedombase Cognitive Data Management technology:<br />Build and maintain complex web-enabled, data-focussed applications with little to no coding required<br />Learn disparate data sources, across any number of disparate databases, and configure data aggregation and business intelligence tools massively reducing both analysis and coding effort<br />Virtually eliminate data integrity issues – Freedombase knows if the data is invalid and prevents human errors entering the system<br />Easy and fast to learn<br />Freedombase requires similar skills to building a spreadsheet<br />Freedombase eliminates most of the effort required to build, maintain, configure or modify data focussed solutions<br />
  11. 11. The Future is Freedom<br />FreedomBase Rapid Application Development toolset<br />Build and maintain complex web-enabled, data-focussed applications in rapid time<br />Little to no coding required<br />FreedomData Data Tool Configurator<br />Have FreedomData’s Spread of Activation learn your disparate data sources to automatically configure your data aggregation tool<br />Reduce analysis and coding effort by 75%<br />FreedomReports<br />Rapid report generation and customisation<br />FreedomBase Engine Integration<br />Enhance your software by integrating Freedombase technology<br />Enables rapid implementation and easy maintenance of your solutions<br />FreedomWeb<br />Rapidly web-enable and/or replatform legacy systems<br />
