New app MindMeld heralds the era of anticipatory computing

  1. Looks wild. I used to work for Open Amplify which is in a similar space (semantic) but built the API in hopes of others using it to come up with amazing products of their own. Clearly Tuttle “gets it”.

    I searched in the app store and could not find it though, is it not live yet?

    Thanks Om!

      1. This is a fascinating app Om and seems to replicate what I have noticed a lot of people do while in meetings or on the phone in front of a computing device. We don’t necessarily know a lot about every topic being discussed, be it restaurants, projects, people or any other object of discussion. So we constantly look things up as the discussion goes on. This app seems to remove the additional step. Thanks for unearthing another very useful app and a great post!

  2. Om, this is awesome. Readers who enjoyed this might also enjoy this podcast I listened to last night from former Apple now Frog designer Scott Jenson, speaking about a mobile UI for the Internet of Things that goes beyond search and incorporates a Just in Time Information Ecosystem. http://huffduffer.com/briansuda/84109 Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go talk to the developers and designer on my team about getting inspired by this way of looking at the future! Awesome.

  3. With both Google (Google Now) and Apple (Passbook) starting to offer this kind of functionality, it’s interesting to see a startup offer it. Of the two, Google is most likely to offer this to developers through an API. But Expect Labs offer this now (or will do shortly), with Mind Meld as their proof of concept.

    I wonder if this will actually be of use or go down as a “cool” technology/service that is more of a nice feature to add to your product rather than a “must have”.

  4. This has been the trend in business for a while, as companies from retail to railroads are putting together systems that anticipate based on past behaviors/occurrences. And some of the best apps will be the ones we never see as they work in the background to open/close/send/query the things that are anticipated.

    I’ve written up a few of these stories on my site but also realize this is just the beginning of what’s coming next. It required RAM to be cheap and processing to be ulta fast before we could here.

    Great stuff.

  5. As a technologist I am fascinated by the idea. As an individual I am not ready to have any technology where the capture, analysis, discerenment, and storage of my words or facial expressions are shared outside my (percieved) control. The reason being that such bio a inner psyche information is part of my DNA as an individual – it just is too personal to say that this is the next socially acceptable “sharing” that society is ready to engage in? However, that might simply be a concern that is not widely held.
