Welcome to the Mnemosyne Project
The Mnemosyne Project has two aspects:
The Mnemosyne software resembles a traditional flash-card program to help you memorise question/answer pairs, but with an important twist: it uses a sophisticated algorithm to schedule the best time for a card to come up for review. Difficult cards that you tend to forget quickly will be scheduled more often, while Mnemosyne won't waste your time on things you remember well.
The software runs on Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. There is also a plugin called Mnemogogo which allows you to review cards on Android phones (using Mnemododo) and phones with Java (using Mnemojojo). This also works on Blackberry devices.
While you use the software, detailed statistics can be kept on your learning process. If you want, these logs can be uploaded in a transparent and anonymous way to a central server for analysis.
This data will be valuable to study the behaviour of our memory over a very long time period. As an additional benefit, the results will be used to improve the scheduling algorithms behind the software even further.
