Members of the University of Michigan community are constantly growing as a result of interacting with complex ideas. In the course of these interactions, it can often be difficult to break down ideas systematically, store them in an easily retrievable and understandable way, and communicate them effectively. While back-of-the-napkin notes, whiteboarding sessions, and long wandering conversations all have their place (and always will) , what is needed is a common language to formalize conclusions, a mechanism to store those conclusions, and an efficient retrieval process.
Invarient will alleviate these issues for the UM community by creating a new system for visualizing and storing information. Their tool can be used by all including teachers for teaching, students for academic ideas, and academic advisors who want to illustrate possible career paths and academic requirements for their students.
