BrainAnnex.orgis being set up as a non-profit, to empower scientists, professionals, and people at large,
to thrive rather than drown in today's information overload
Open-source web-based tool (can also run locally, or be integrated into existing sites.)
Meant for anyone who has NOTES, DATA RECORDS or MEDIA...
at your fingertips – effortlessly organized, searchable and updatable – from any location!
A whole technology stack built on top of the Neo4j graph database
When the storage of knowledge/data is combined with a network of "relationships" among the data entities,
and a UI layer with easy viewing/browsing/updating/searching – that's
when it can feel like a handy "annex" of your brain!
Note: the video below is from an old version of BrainAnnex, which emphasizes a limited use case. The new version, currenly in Late Beta,
is much more general.

How to use it?On the cloud, or directly installed on your local machine.
The software, as of October 2022, have been in active use for over 6 years, by a growing number of users.
Brain Annex is available as open-source software (Repository).
IMPORTANT NOTE: the new version 5.0 of Brain Annex is a complete, major overhaul of its entire technology stack.
Currently in late Beta, and based on Neo4j, Python, Flask, Vue.js, it also provides support for arbitrary complex datasets,
and advanced querying capabilities.
Unlike the earlier versions, this new Brain Annex
is aimed at organizations or very technical individuals, rather than to a more general public.
No hosted solutions are available at present; you will need to host it on your own server, or run it on your desktop.
