it’s looking that way. I decided to try to loosely tie the Mendeley academic articles I have in my database 2589, earlier not in yet, using standard US academic categories as keywords without getting too nuts on specificity just yet.
(After all there’s an etymological connection even if its metaphorical)
Just looking for rough measures for possible patterns.
So far it’s working. I skipped business because one of the academic paper places uses “+ Business” in their name so that’s way too skew. But stuff like “analysis” being common is ok.
 Yeah. I indexed various PDFs I had sitting on my hard drive that I’d read. It doesn’t mean I understood them – but I tried. I usually research things that I don’t know much about so it’s more a map of my ignorance than strength
 I’ve been having trouble finding common themes.
I’m going to get more specific when I get back to my computer on this, but what I want to do first is create an anchor system that I can hang these papers off of.
 thank you. I hope it gets more interesting as I drill down into the more specific.
For example, I didn’t realize that cognitive science falls under artificial intelligence
I knew AI was an interest of mine but cognitive science much more so. It’s that kind of connection that I hope comes out of this.

I had a hunch that the name of academic departments, names of journals, job titles, may include the generalized information already there, even if the title of the paper and content didn’t reveal what field it’s from or for.
It’s working surprisingly well
So for example if a paper is about colors but it’s written from somebody in the mathematics department, the basic keyword search will pick up mathematics which would be the right keyword
