Datastore at your fingertips

Many programmers and engineers will be familiar with the concept of a datastore: a persistent database of key, value pairs that you can call up on-demand whenever you need to recall some data. Modern day datastores are usually large databases such as MySQL and ElasticSearch, that usually resides on a server somewhere (in the cloud, or on a local instance within your computer). It is usually too cumbersome for anyone to set up simply so they can have their data at their fingertips.

Here's a way to have a simple datastore that you can use with you wherever you are. All you need is your Android smartphone.

Disclaimer: I am not familiar with iPhones or Windows Phones or Blackberrys, and so I do not know if this is possible on those devices. However, if you are aware of such a workaround existing on your phone, do share it in the comments!

--------------------------
Let's say you want to keep a particularly long string of data, like your bank account number (for the purpose of letting other people wire money to you). Let's just say this number is 1234-567890-8888. Here's how you can store it on your Android phone.

1. Go to your phone's Settings -> Languages & Input
2. In the next screen, select the option called Personal Dictionary, and then For all languages.
3. Tap the +Add button. It is usually in the top-right corner.
4. Enter the text you want to save. In this case, that text is 1234-567890-8888.
5. Enter a shortcut (you can call this a key if you want) in the space at the bottom. For this example, I used "*/bank*".
6. Tap "OK" (or the back button) to save the data.

That's it!

Now whenever you type "*/bank*" on your phone, the autocorrect suggestion will show your data, which you can simply tap to have it input on whatever field you are typing in.

What does one name an English language parsing model, built with an open-source neural network framework implemented in #TensorFlow that provides a foundation for Natural Language Understanding systems? Parsey McParseface, of course!
