You might often hear of the term “information overload” especially if you go online. The data you can find on the internet are just limitless and as normal human beings whose attention span is rather short, we cannot take all these information in one setting. We need all these information to be sifted and segregated so that we will spare ourselves from spending our precious time pouring on some worthless data which are of no relevance to our interests.

Curation, the collection and segregation of relevant information to make its processing and dissemination faster and easier while providing a more accessible information set-up designed for user convenience.
