"Knowen is an experiment in progress that is being designed to organize, preserve, and expand human knowledge - placing it in a hierarchical knowledge base (graph) that makes it readily available to learners of all backgrounds and ages.
The rate of scientific and engineering innovation is rapidly increasing. With the advent of the Internet and powerful search engines, millions of research articles are accessible within seconds from anywhere in the world.
