The Method of Loci - Using Cognitive Extenders to Enable and Capture


As mentioned in one of the opportunity classes in my February blog here: https://dreamtolearn.com/ryan/cognitivewingman/3 - Cognitive Extenders can include use of the Method of Loci.


Per Wikipedia "The method of loci (loci being Latin for "places") is a method of memory enhancement which uses visualizations with the use of spatial memory, familiar information about one's environment, to quickly and efficiently recall information. The method of loci is also known as the memory journey, memory palace, or mind palace technique. "



Augmented and Virtual Reality systems, equipped with Natural Language Understanding, can likely offer ways to translate ideas and thoughts to the AR/VR space.  This will be helpful for collaboration, therapy, and memory aids - and potentially applicable to dementia, PTSD, or professionals seeking a cognitive extender..


More to come, but having walked around the augmented world expo last Friday - it seems the technology pieces exist today to compose such a system.
