Loci is an interactive, user-modifiable, 3D map of technologies, inventions, patents, ideas, and concepts. We scrape the web for patents, technical papers, products, and ideas, then backfill with active user’s queries and recognition of “whitespace”. We then populate a unique-to-user map, complete with a unique map.
By mapping the known we can begin to fill in the “unknown”, or in many cases the “didn’t realize it was known”. We analyze the trends of research, the ways in which users find what they are looking for, and teach our patented machine learning algorithms to continue the momentum of research. What we get back is comprehensive map of all known, unknown, and unexecuted ideas and inventions. We then apply this approach to look back at older technologies, and forward to what must happen next.
Loci and its patented technologies is poised to change the way we all invent, and the value of an idea as a whole.
