DeepaMehta combines interdisciplinary research with the idea of Open Source to generate a true benefit for workflow as well as for social processes. At the same time Deepa Mehta is an indian movie director.
The DeepaMehta user interface is build according to research in Cognitive Psychology and accomodates the knowledge building process of the individual.
Instead of handling information through applications, windows and files with DeepaMehta the user handles all kind of information directly and individually.
DeepaMehtas user interface is completely based on Mind Maps / Concept Maps.
DeepaMehta is a "networked semantic desktop" that replaces the traditional computer desktop. DeepaMehta rids the user from dealing with applications, files and directories.
Instead, the DeepaMehta user arranges information of any kind and origin into supportive topic maps. Topics may be e.g. projects, notes, articles, contacts, emails, webpages, or meetings. Users define their own topic types.
Old-fashioned applications, windows and files are no longer in the sight of the user, but the meaningful relationships between real world topics. The DeepaMehta desktop is never obscured by other windows.
The DeepaMehta desktop serves as a visual cache of the users actual work context.
