Introduction to PeerNotes V0.4

Conceptionary is a small software startup that aims to make learning significantly easier. Our first product, called PeerNotes, will be a note taking app with an AI tutor that explains new concepts as you take notes. The full app takes significant time to build, so we’re releasing smaller prototypes to provide a small amount of usefulness earlier. Currently, we have two prototypes. The first, the Auto-Dictionary, demonstrates the AI tutor. The second, PeerNotes, demonstrates a simple note taking interface. Our next release will combine these into a prototype with both note taking and an AI tutor. As of September 2021, you can try both prototypes on our website at conceptionary.app.

We’re now releasing the PeerNotes note taking prototype to a small select group of students to try. Starting in September 2021, students will be able to login and take notes in PeerNotes. The notes will be saved and kept when future versions are released. The Auto-Dictionary prototype is also online, but currently only a set vocabulary that makes it less useful as an everyday tool. In the next release, we’ll integrate the AI and the note taking features.

To start using PeerNotes, go to our website at conceptionary.app and click on the PeerNotes note taking prototype link. The link will take you to a signup page where you can create your account and login. After logging in, you will see a documents page where you can create new documents. We recommend creating many small documents, as large documents can be difficult to work with at this stage. After creating a document, click “Open” to start adding notes to the document. Each note has a name and a specific organization, so that the future AI can understand what you’re writing. Later, when the AI is added, it will read your notes to estimate your knowledge level and then show explanations for concepts that seem new for you. If you run into any issues, you can contact us via the contact form on our website. We hope PeerNotes makes your studies easier. If it’s not useful, let us know, and we’ll fix it in the next release.
