Aibase is a handy and reliable application optimized for structuring thoughts and ideas in an efficient information space.
An efficient information space relieves the human memory in many ways. Computer memory is typically used as long-term memory.
But optimized information spaces like Aibase also adapt to the specialties of the human short-term memory: They cluster related information visibly, and by links and notes. They emphasize information by colors.
Fast navigation, automatic document-creation and single-key operations give you more time to focus on your information. You can quickly break down complex information into trees for better understanding.
Aibase allows you to solve tasks with largest complexity. Such a task can grow up to thousands of linked documents (by help of automatic document-creation). The more complex a task, the higher the demands on the human memory. And the reverse: If the human memory is relieved, then the solvable complexity, quality and security increases. Users who spend much time with Aibase will even find that they never reach limits to understand new complex information.
Aibase already optimizes well-known information structures: trees (collapsible), tables, shapes, equations, animations, hyperlinks, notes. These structures represent a solid platform for going into information spaces with more complexity.
Future versions of Aibase will optimize further and will add many scientific structures, so we can interactively explore science in many dimensions (2D, 3D, and time). Aibase's main goal is to build a multilevel platform for knowledge-exploration. Higher levels (science) build on lower levels (visualization, simple math). Understanding a problem depends on the visualization of carefully chosen perspectives. T
he goal is to explore knowledge multiple times more efficient than with traditional methods. Experienced users are fascinated by the gained ability to understand complex or unknown knowledge worlds; computer-empowered methods are the indispensable basis for this new level.
Here are some key features of "Aibase":
· Objects can be text, images, image-text combinations, tables, panels, connectors and shapes. All objects can be placed freely or assembled in an easy and playful manner.
· Many objects can be assembled into trees, can be dropped into table cells, can be placed on panels or can be connected to build flow-charts.
· Objects can be grouped to form a new image, which is an object again.
· An image can show a whole Aibase document, the same document can be shown by many images, at many places.
· An image can not only show a still image, but can contain a slide show controlled by time. Each slide can show a whole Aibase document. A slide show can also be exported as gif animation.
· Shapes can be free-form, can contain holes and can be rotated
· PC with Pentium 233 MHz or higher
· 64 MB RAM
· 80 MB hard disk
· 30 uses
· Nag screen
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
Changes (most recent on top) since v3.0:
· Refinements in script-related help.
· Added: more Quantity types related to energy.
· Added: Storage-fields: Link-Settings / Keywords and Reference; Document-Settings / Author
· Added: Aibase Settings / Window-Elements / field to tweak dialog-color
· Further adjustments of dialogs to high-resolution displays
· Stricter quantity-rule: Nameless Compounds switch to base-units (minimal/unique)
· Design-optimization in help-documents: Colored background in top row
New in Aibase 3.0:
· Item text can be interpreted by Aibase as quantity (number, money or physical quantity)
· Script (in Aimo) can access (read and change) the quantities.
· List of supported quantities
· New object type: Aimo (Aibase Input-Model-Output) as script-container (for calculations and others)
· Aimos are special tables (with script-cell and data-cells) which can placed in the canvas.
· The script (Python 3) can be run by menu command. Aimo data and other quantities,
· elsewhere in the s...
