Artificial intelligence that remembers everything you saw on the Internet

Apps to have an active brain

Founded in 2021, Heyday is an Artificial Intelligence platform that seeks to become a memory backup by the method of processing in the background everything the user accesses through his web browser, retrieving all that information when needed.

Web pages, Google documents, notes, Slack or Discord conversations, Twitter threads, appointments managed with the calendar (provided it is done through the browser)…. all this information will be organized by Heyday based on different categoriesby subject, with the expression of the time that the user has spent immersed in each of them.

From there Heyday, which is installed in the browser as an extensionIt generates dynamic descriptions in text that allow you to easily search for the contents that you once viewed in order to be able to access them again.

The fact is that there is a limit to the capacity to retain information, especially in times of excessive stimuli like the present, with an overabundance of instant messaging, social networks, e-mail, web pages… and when the attention span is getting shorter and shorter, to the point that some people already find TikTok videos to be long.

An attention process that is also subject to all kinds of distractions and interruptions, such as pop-up windows, animations or links and calls to other content that swarm around what is being read or watched. How to be able to remember everything that has been read or watched? Faced with this impossibility, all these tasks can be “outsourced” through an artificial intelligence (AI) such as Heyday in what could be described as a “memory outsourcing”..

The consumption of information in digital format presents, according to some studies, aspects that complicate memorization, as happens with the difference between reading (or studying) a book in paper format or in digital format. The physical book allows the mind to to create mind maps with the situation of diagrams or texts by their location on the page, as well as allowing to remember whether it was an odd or even page (by being on the right or left) or whether a block of information is “around page 20” or beyond page 300. With an e-book, where the progress through the content is indicated by a percentage it is not always so easy for that kind of memory to remain in the background.

Finally, the use of bookmarks or apps such as Instapaper, which allow you to save for later reading content that you have barely glanced at, only complicates the situation in the sense that, at the end of the day or after a few days, you retain virtually no memory of something you saw or read in passing.

Heyday acts as a binder of all the information accessed from the browser, analyzing and categorizing the contents. The result is that when setting a search, Heyday offers the results in relation to the contents that the user has seen around that search criteria, becoming something similar to a memory assistant, making use of the tools provided by the most recent advances in AI, as in the case of ChatGPT and conversational AI, since it is even capable of underlining paragraphs or keywords in relation to the contents that have ever been consulted.

Since Heydata stores all that information about the user’s browsing history concerns could come in terms of privacy concerns. The developer guarantees that they do not sell such data and their revenue comes from the $19 monthly subscription charged to users. A price that could orient this tool to an academic or professional use, for researchers, journalists, analysts…
