iMind is developed based on memory psychology
The human brain remembers information by association2 of key topics
such as people, events, purposes, or other cues. INFOMATO iMind lets you
efectively build association of keywords as a memory aid to "cue" your memory.
"Memory Book-The classic guide to improving your memory at work, at school and at play," by H. Lorayne and J. Lucas
When you encounter something worth remembering, you can quickly create a reminder for yourself consisting of a simple set of keywords (typically 2-5) that represent the idea. When you need to recall the information later, instead of
trying to come up with the answer without a clue, iMind prompts you to
choose from a list of relevant reminders on the
fly so you can easily "recognize" the context using your subconscious3.
To give you an example, here is a reminder
to help me remember an
important person or organization whose name is foreign and difficult to
- "Hayao Miyazaki"
- "Studio Ghibli"
- "Japanese Disney"
Next, you will see this reminder in a suggestive list if you search for easy,
impressive terms like "Disney", "Japan", or "studio" etc. View
You do not need to worry about a complex, inflexible organizational scheme such as a relational database or spreadsheet
for saving and retrieving these reminders. INFOMATO iMind's "self-organizing" technology will take care of that for you.
iMind automatically arranges your reminder list in reverse chronological order so that you can go back to a task after a quickly glance at the top of the list. In general, it takes less than a minute to build the reminder and associate any
emails, documents, web pages or notes with it.
After that you can forget about
it. No need to worry about where and how you should manage your reminders.
Of course not everything is worth remembering. Most of the information you come across
should be queued in a "time bin" or "to-do" list. After you are done with it,
"erase" it from your memory. On average, you may encounter each day around 10 things
that are worth remembering. By spending 10 minutes a day with
INFOMATO iMind, you
will alleviate more
than 3,000 pressure points from your head each year.

iMind taps into the power of your unconscious memory or recognition memory, which does not age!
The bad news: The results of a recent scientific study published on NIH.gov indicate that by the time you reach the age of ~65, your ability to
recall drops to 50-60% of what it was when you were 18.
The good news: However, these results also indicate that when you are reminded at a later time,
you can remember or recognize information1 with your unconscious (implicit)
memory which does not decline with age. Learn more ...
In order to harness the power of your unconscious memory, you need relevant reminder
cues when you try to recall something. But who is
available and reliable enough to prime you 24/7? I couldn't
find anybody to do that for me. That's why
I invented iMind.

Why was iMind developed
How did iMind come about? Let me share with you my own personal experience. Hi, I am Dr. Wayne Lo, the founder of INFOMATO. I am a technologist and
Several years ago, I found myself in a very stressful situation. While my work in Silicon Valley, California was steadily demanding more of my brain cells each year,
my ability to remember the daily influx of information that I received seemed to be eroding quickly, especially after age 35. Being an experienced inventor and a technologist, I decided to solve my problem
Have you noticed that although our memory capacity seems
limited, our computer's memory doubles every two years. After 4 years of research and development, iMind was created with its unique patented
technology, which enables our brain to tap into the enourmous memory capacity of one's own personal computer.
Do you have the same memory problem? If so, iMind can work for you too.
Why reinvent the wheel? Are there other solutions?
The root cause of your memory stress is how to sort the influx of day-to-day
information, 80 to 90% of which is unstructured (messy and cross-related).
Because databases and folder
systems cannot handle this type of
data and search engines cannot help manage highly
personal data, this problem of dealing with unstructured data is fundamental and unsolved, as stated by Robert
Blumberg and Shaku Atre in DM Review:
“The management of unstructured data is recognized as one of the major unsolved
problems in the information technology (IT) industry… white collar workers will
spend anywhere from 30 to 40 percent of their time this year managing
After four years
of research and development, INFOMATO created a patented,
innovative solution that enables you to group your thoughts and ideas together as a
reminder. You can later see your reminders self-organize on the fly based on
your input. Learn more
