          Abstract

          Spatial memory is one of the key factors of life survival. Human beings have developed this asset to a high level of complexity. They started to modify their environment. They build architectural structure to host their activities. They also developed different techniques to organise their knowledge. The “ Art of Memory” (Yates 1966) is one of the techniques that was used to structure memories. This was achieved by associating information to be remembered with emotionally striking images. Those images were then placed in a visualized location in the mind's eye. Nowadays, the way people are using their memory is very much different. With the exponential growth of technologies, people have externalised their memories in all sort of devices in a very binary and flat format. Can we rely on this kind of artificial memory on a long term? Are we really able to retrieve the information we want?
