How is Personal AI transforming Personal Knowledge Management?

As AI startups are striving to transform the way businesses organize and access their knowledge base, individuals use plethoric tools that are lagging behind in comparison with B2B tools.

« What's your Personal Knowledge Management Tool ? » is not a question that the general public often hears.

We tend to find the same usual suspects (Google Keep, Evernote, or Apple Notes). But there's not one single app/software to rule them all.

And this is about to change with the arrival of Personal AIs like Spheria that are promising to transform the world of Personal Knowledge Management. Artificial General Intelligence vs Personal Artificial Intelligence

In this article, we'll dig into what personal knowledge management covers, what's personal AI and how it can transform Personal Knowledge Management.

What's Personal Knowledge Management?

Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) is an approach where individuals capture, organize, process, and share their own knowledge. We define knowledge as the fact of knowing something thanks to experiences, information, and association. PKM involves all the strategies and tools used to effectively manage and use this vast amount of information in personal and professional contexts. PKM goals are to enhance an individual's learning, problem-solving, and decision-making by creating a structured and interconnected repository of insights, notes, reflections, and resources. When we talk about PKM, we usually refer to journaling, note-taking, information tagging, and continuous self-directed learning.

Beyond Search…

In the process of collecting your notes, posts, articles, and messages, machine learning algorithms can definitely help you navigate your knowledge. Startups like Rewind offer to record everything stored in your Mac and iPhone to facilitate the search for a piece of information. Built for professional use, Rewind is really good at finding a meeting recap, the content of an email, or a OneNote you've saved locally to help you with a task. You get to share Slack messages, notes, or documents that are enriched with your own input.

There's one flaw: the absence of interaction with your audiences. AI has promised us more effective ways to simply go beyond the intricacies of the search experience. It opened the door for more:

  • Availability: AI can make targeted content available around the clock. What if it could do the same with Personal Knowledge Bases (PKB)? Instead of waiting for people to share their knowledge when they feel like it, experiences, skills, and stories would be searchable at all times.
  • Connection: Querying a database has become a common action in the world of web products. What if AI could allow us to query Personal Knowledge Base and get instant answers in a user-friendly way?
  • Personalization: Artificial General Intelligence is booming, As Personal Knowledge Bases now have the tech to become smart and useful, it's the time to bring personalization in the hands of individuals themselves.

AI has brought some capabilities that we couldn't even dream a few years ago. Let's see what are the solutions to revolutionize Personal Knowledge Management.

Personal AI to revolutionize your Personal Knowledge Management

What's a Personal AI?

Personal AI is a category of AI that provides you with the tools to create, train, and grow your own AI. But, instead of relying on trillion data points, your Personal AI learns from your data: your skills, experiences, and memories. A personal AI is a true extension of your mind online, drawing from your memory bank to give life to your new writing project, exploring new business ideas from your professional background, and connecting you seamlessly with the people who will unlock your creativity.

_A Personal AI like Spheria lets you train your official AI with training modules that are easy to use._

Personal AIs intend to provide users with the perfect tools to store, retrieve, and create from personal knowledge bases. AI startups are either focusing on storing and retrieving, or creating:

  • Storing and retrieving: startups like Quivr, Rewind, or Augment are facilitating the storage of all the knowledge you have compiled in your notes, emails, and messages. Once stored, you can retrieve them to help you save time when writing your emails, recap notes, or drafting a presentation for your pitch.
  • Creating: two companies - OpenAI and Inflection AI - are currently dominating the industry. Whether you need help to write a book, craft a new diet, or kickstart a new business, ChatGPT and Pi will offer you the most relevant generic answers to your personalized questions… This is totally fine for most of your expectations unless you need answers that dive into specific data points that cater to you…

If you think of alternatives that bring both worlds together, Spheria is the way to go. Currently, in beta, it's the only AI you can trust to speak for you online. With such a tagline, you can imagine how much effort has been put into facilitating the process from recording your experiences, skills, and stories to the creation of content based on your profile. Many AI startups will probably show this level of ambition soon… which is exciting for the future of Personal AI.
