- Information overload occurs when the amount of input to a system exceeds its processing capacity
- Managing information in daily life is a problem facing nearly everyone
- Pluaris is a proprietary, easy-to-use platform that assists users with reading and analyzing textual data
Although the term “information overload” was first coined more than five decades ago, it’s become a more pressing issue with time. Nowigence is working to solve the issue. A fast-growing SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) company, Nowigence has developed an innovative, artificial intelligence (“AI”) platform called Pluaris(TM) that enables users to choose what information they want to receive and then delivers that information most effectively.
“The term ‘information overload’ was coined by Bertram Gross, the professor of political science at Hunter College, in his 1964 work, ‘The Managing of Organizations’,” reported a recent Interaction Design Foundation article (https://ibn.fm/QkVXD). “However, it was popularized by Alvin Toffler, the American writer and futurist, in his book ‘Future Shock’ in 1970.
“Gross defined information overload as follows: ‘Information overload occurs when the amount of input to a system exceeds its processing capacity. Decision makers have fairly limited cognitive processing capacity. Consequently, when information overload occurs, it is likely that a reduction in decision quality will occur,’” the article continued. “Throughout history there have been complaints about information overload particularly during the Renaissance and the industrial revolution periods. However, the dawn of the information age and access to powerful and low-cost data collection on automated basis has brought us more information than at any other point in history.”
The article observes that “managing information in daily life is no longer restricted to a wealthy elite but is a problem which faces nearly everyone. Social media, e-mail, webpages, mobile apps, etc. all spill data into our lives daily.” The article noted that the most common reasons behind information overload in today’s modern world include volumes of new information being constantly created and distributed, as well as the ability to easily duplicate and share that information. The exponential increase in channels has also contributed to the problem. In addition, the article noted that there are no simple methodologies for quickly processing, comparing and evaluating information sources.
