About SALT

  • Seed funded by the Stanford University President's Fund, we are developing software tools to enable a digital archive of unpublished distinguished faculty "papers".  § 
  • We bring in born-digital documents and digitize physical ones, then automatically organize and tag documents and map the concepts found within the documents. 
  • §Our contribution is a software toolkit to enable the living luminary to easily add insights and new knowledge connections.  
  • We will make these annotated collections available via next generation web discovery environments (web 3.0 or semantic web).  
  • The benefit we hope the project will deliver is to bring new knowledge to the Internet about the progression of ideas and the network of innovation that bring concepts from great minds to the world.
