MetKnow

Abstract

MetKnow generates flash cards and quizzes of members in organizations for the members to use to learn each others' names. We have all joined an organization where in a span of 5 minutes we meet 20 people and we quickly realize we have forgotten everyone's name. So, we give the new and current members a tool to use to learn the names and group relevant information about their fellow members for the next time they interact by generating flash cards and quizzes of everyone.

We patented electronic flash cards and electronic quizzes for the sake of knowing people. PATENT NO. 9,330,164
