Remembrance Agent
Associative memory applications

The Remembrance Agent watches over your shoulder and continuously updates a list of documents relevant to what's being typed or read in an emacs buffer. Suggestions are displayed in their own window at the bottom of the frame, and are continually updated every few seconds. The RA uses a multi-field information-retrieval back-end called Savant that can index several different kinds of files, including email archives, HTML, LaTeX, and plain text format.
