To help people remember key facts, IBM unveiled a software technology created in its Research Labs that uses the images, sounds, and text recorded on everyday mobile devices to help people recall names, faces, conversations and other important information.

The software dubbed as “PENSIEVE” uses associative recall to make connections between pieces of related data acquired by a person.
