For you who does a lot of research, you might relate to the scenario of having numerous tabs opened on your browser, not wanting to close either of them, afraid that there might be some important information that you might want to go back to later. Bookmarking all the links doesn’t help in time-saving either, as you forgot what was the information you wanted from each individual link and checking back one by one is just inefficient. This is where notes taking or memo keeping applications play a vital role for you to do an efficient research!
Notes taking applications are wonderful tools if you ask me. The only problem with it however, is that currently, most online notes taking or memo keeping applications including Google Keep do not support semantic search. The search algorithms of these applications work on exact match searches. Which means to say, we would have to input an exact search query to retrieve the piece of note that we want. The problem with this is that sometimes, we cannot find our memo due to the failure of recalling the exact word in the note!
Let’s take a look at how Twinword Writer uses its semantic search algorithm to retrieve saved notes in the following video:
What do I mean by that? Referring to the first example in the video, searching for “Animal” triggered the search for similar words related to “Animal”, which in this scenario, happens to be the word “Bird”. Second example shows the user searching for a “Cake” related notes and the list of “What to buy” shows up even though the list does not include the word “Cake”, but the ingredients to make one! The third example relates to memo keeping of news article, and retrieving them with just the recall of a word to describe the content.
Using Twinword Writer for keeping notes allows you to copy and paste all the information that you have gathered for your research first, and assess their usability later. CTRL + F doesn’t allow the search for words across the different tabs on your browser, but Twinword Writer offers the platform for you to so do!
Similar to the examples shown in the video, you just have to copy and paste unorganized data/texts onto Twinword Writer and utilize the search function on the left tab to comb through those information to search for what you want. With the advance search available, you don’t even have to crack your head to recall the exact keyword to search. Simply enter the first word that comes to your head and let the advance search do its due diligence!
What’s more, you may also start writing your essay/thesis on a new tab on Twinword Writer, and get synonyms, word suggestions to facilitate better choice of vocabularies. Your notes are safe, Twinword Writer auto backup by saving your notes for you every few minutes.
