One of the strongest features of Aibase is the support for information chunking. Information chunking, an user action, depends on many highly-optimized Aibase-functions. We use the most general meaning of chunking: Any information consists of pieces (chunks). Chunking changes the number and size: Breaking information down into smaller pieces (chunking down). Categorizing information into larger pieces (chunking up, abstraction).
Chunking can multiply the efficiency of single persons and companies in information processing, and so the creativity. It's simple, timeless, and the need for robust methods makes this a part of the information world, as another basic skill.
At the beginning we have an incoming long document, e.g., a device manual, a multi-page specification, lecture material from university, other course material, with higher complexity, possibly a bit boring (to say the least). No problem; experienced users can break a complex document of 100 pages into Aibase documents (with mostly lists and trees) in less than a day, almost mechanically. An existing document for the start is one example, but one can also break down something like E = m c^2, if someone looks for a new sport :) In such case we are also responsible for finding related documents.
What is wrong with the original document? - It can already be useful in presentation, for reading, but there is still something else: Deducing own actions, and own extensions. The ITAC (Information-To-Action-Coefficient) of a complex document is the weak point. We need a method that keeps us active and creative.
We want a fast understanding of all information revelant to our goals, and don't miss vital information. We break the source document down into pieces, regardless of how complex the information is. Theoretically, no information source is safe from us. Breaking down works reliably, even under harder personal conditions. Understanding and selective memorizing result from the interactive work. And the resulting documents are still there for later use; more understandable, more extendable than before.
