Loci.io is building a comprehensive map of ideas, invention, and technology, to determine what "we" know and exactly what we have done with that knowledge.
Loci.io is an interactive, user-modifiable, map of technologies, inventions, patents, ideas, and concepts. We scrape the web for patents, technical papers, products, and ideas. Then backfill with active user's queries and recognition of "whitespace". We then populate a unique-to-user map, complete with a unique map.
By mapping the known we can begin to fill in the "unknown", or in many cases the "didn't realize it was known".
