Knowen is an experiment in progress that is being designed to organize, preserve, and expand human knowledge - placing it in a hierarchical knowledge base (graph) that makes it readily available to learners of all backgrounds and ages.
The rate of scientific and engineering innovation is rapidly increasing. With the advent of the Internet and powerful search engines, millions of research articles are accessible within seconds from anywhere in the world. Despite this, because of the complexity of a typical journal article and the redundancy among these, it is often as difficult today as it was 50 or 100 years ago to find a particularly relevant and verified piece of knowledge.
Knowen addresses this problem by:
Because it can grow and preserve the tree of human knowledge, Knowen can serve as a global clearinghouse for existing knowledge and emergent ideas. Existing content can be placed into a developing Knowen hierarchy of knowledge; new content can emerge directly within it, while connections can be established or reshaped as new information, or better understanding, emerges.
Yes, Knowen is completely free for academic and personal use. Please contact us if you are interested in a commercial license.
No, all created content can be exported at any time. This is also a useful feature if you simply want to peruse the content off-line or share with others.
The goal is to provide a convenient platform for conducting research and sharing information.
