We have created the ability to actively manage your memory, over a lifetime, at a very granular level. And that is the future of education and learning in more than one way.
Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) December 11, 2012
Cerego, the world’s first memory management tool, today launched into private beta giving students and lifelong learners the ability to learn faster, remember longer and manage their memory for a lifetime. The tool brings together advanced learning and memory science with cloud-based technologies to make learning anything, anytime possible. To start, the tool will be accessible through a tablet-optimized, web-based interface. Anyone can sign up here: http://cerego.com/.
As learners study with Cerego, the tool measures the rate of information absorption and memory decay, simultaneously calculating the precise moment to review in order to achieve maximum memory strength. Cerego’s Memory Bank, a personalized visualization of learning progress, maps activation and memory strength across all courses and individual items studied. The Memory Bank makes learning and re-learning more efficient and effective by surfacing a granular, real-time understanding of learning and forgetting progress for each unique learner.
“We are revolutionizing how people learn. The task of calculating the optimum moment to study a unique item while processing a vast amount of information, such as a college course load, is beyond the capacity of the human brain. We have created the ability to actively manage your memory, over a lifetime, at a very granular level. And that is the future of education and learning in more than one way,” said Andrew Smith Lewis, Executive Chairman and co-founder. “In the Google era, where information is seemingly at our fingertips, the question becomes, what deserves to be in your memory? For lifelong learners and students, memory mastery leads to life enrichment and improved learning outcomes in the classroom.”
Cerego’s adaptive learning platform is flexible and can accommodate several types of content, including visual, written and audio. Learners can build public or private courses to cater to their passions and learning interests. Public courses reap the benefit of Cerego’s learning community which promotes peer-to-peer collaboration, open course improvement and knowledge sharing.
“In a world of platforms, we aim to be the first to conquer learning,” said Eric Young, CEO and co-founder. “Cerego is built on a highly-extensible platform, powered by neuroscience-based algorithms. It is built to be a powerful learning tool standing alone, or a powerful advantage when used to augment current study methods. Everyone needs a memory manager and Cerego will change how we approach the sustainable learning problem.”
To date, the learns on Cerego’s platform have amassed 3.7 million study hours and engaged over 1.6 billion individual learning items worldwide. Cerego’s learning algorithms are continually improving with every new study interaction. The company also is advised by an elite group of scientists and technology luminaries, including but not limited to Scott McNealy, co-founder Sun Microsystems, Joi Ito, director of the MIT Media Lab and Kevin Chavous, head of The Chavous Group.
During the beta period Cerego will work with select subject matter experts and academics at higher education institutions to create unique showcase courses. The company also plans to collaborate with higher education institutions and educational publishers to co-create the future of how we learn.
In early 2013, Cerego is expected to release a suite of iOS mobile applications. Following the release the company will open its APIs and invite developers to build applications on the platform. For information on the partnerships or developer beta invites please visit: http://cerego.com/partners.
Cerego is a memory management tool for the world’s learners.
We are experts in adaptive learning and memory science. Through our core adaptive learning platform, web application and full suite of mobile applications, we have been helping students enrich their lives, learn and retain knowledge more effectively for over a decade.
