Pattern recognition

Function that recognizes patterns in files based on AI/pattern recognition techniques.
The machine would also assist in collaboratively structuring a file together with the user by making suggestions of how to devide the file, guessing file types, type of the parts of the file etc. and letting the user make the final descision of choosing what part means what. This would lead to an iterative processing of a file with the end result being a specific structure making the file editable and viewable in a more comfortable manner (data inspector, structure viewer, etc.). Later on this may lead to a generalized file format by replacing concrete values with types.

Edit: Fractals might also be worth looking into for pattern recognition (i.e. selfresemblance).

Note: Just a placeholder for a longer term research project.
