Information-driven professionals are constantly busy producing and consuming digital content in pursuit of their personal and professional objectives. As this information transfer intensifies, and as the amount of content in personal collections accumulates, these compulsive organizers spend more and more time organizing and searching their collection of previously developed content, rather than actually using that content. Synapse is a digital content management tool that learns from how users organize their content. It groups content using semantic analysis, and subsequently applies machine learning to train a category suggestion engine over time, removing the need for users to waste time organizing and searching their digital content.
