Good research happens in three phases. You recall what you know. You consult with someone. You search external sources. We’re applying our machine learning and augmented intelligence expertise to present you with all three research phases automatically, at the moment you need them, without ever leaving your workspace. As you work, Evernote is automatically looking for other information and content that might help you connect the dots/see the big picture. This content can take the form of other notes, people you might talk to or even relevant news sources.
In Evernote, every phrase informs our algorithms about what other content might help you further your project. We call this Context. It’s an extremely powerful new Premium feature coming soon to Evernote.
Your Evernote account is full of great information that you’ve written and collected. Connecting the dots between your current project and the similar one you did last year can be difficult. We’ll fix that. As you type, we search through your old notes and surface anything related to your current work.
Your team’s knowledge
Next, if you’re an Evernote Business user, we search through accessible notebooks owned by your colleagues to find any relevant notes about the task at hand. This helps you avoid repeating someone else’s work. In addition, our Expertise Discovery feature will show you people in your company that we believe may know more about the topic you’re working on. That person sitting two rows away might be the critical resource you need.
Your extended network is also valuable. When someone is mentioned in your note, we’ll go find them on LinkedIn and give you their latest information including where they work, their current title, and their profile photo. This way you’ll stay in the know about their current details and you’re also able to contact them through Work Chat, all without ever leaving Evernote.
Possibly the most powerful new benefit that Context brings is a look at related information from premier news and information sources, including from one of the most trusted media organizations on the planet, The Wall Street Journal.
To maximize the impact, we aren’t just looking at today’s news, we’re going through recent archives to find the best articles for that particular moment. Click, and the article opens in Evernote, then clip it, cite a section, or use Work Chat to share with your team.
Our growing list of sources of information, includes:
- The Wall Street Journal
- Factiva (Evernote Business only)
- Fast Company
- Inc. Magazine
All of this happens entirely within Evernote. Our Augmented Intelligence features like Context are focused on improving your personal experience with Evernote. None of your personal information is ever shared with a third party.
