New Search Engine, Atlas Recall, Remembers Everything You’ve Ever Looked at On Your Computer

Our brains often forget where we saw something among the countless tabs and documents on our computers each day.

To make it easier to find things, Seattle-based Atlas Informatics launched Atlas Recall, which lets you search for anything you’ve ever looked at on your computer.

Atlas Informatics founder and CEO Jordan Ritter calls the software “a photographic memory for your digital life.” In a demonstration to CNNMoney, that proved to be a fairly accurate assessment.

Once installed, Atlas Recall displays personalized search results from the app, desktop search, or Google (GOOGL, Tech30) search. This includes web pages, emails, Slack chats, Netflix films, Spotify songs, or anything else that’s appeared in front of your eyes on your screen.

Let’s say you’re planning a wedding. You can search for “wedding,” and Atlas Recall will pull up calendar appointments, emails from your wedding party, websites of flower companies, photos of wedding dresses, the Spotify playlist you listened to when emailing your fiancé, and the Facebook wedding planning group you’re a part of.

You can search by keyword, content type or time, and it displays all related information based on relevancy. For instance, if two documents were open at the same time and you toggled between them, they will both appear whether or not they contain a keyword.

Once installed on your hard drive and browser, Atlas Recall runs in the background and begins collecting your activity. The company captures all the content you’ve looked at and stores it on its servers.
