One of the problems is that the amount of storage strength you gain from practice is inversely correlated with the current retrieval strength. In other words, the harder you have to work to get the right answer, the more the answer is sealed in memory. Precisely those things that seem to signal we're learning well — easy performance on drills, fluency during a lesson, even the subjective feeling that we know something — are misleading when it comes to predicting whether we will remember it in the future. "The most motivated and innovative teachers, to the extent they take current performance as their guide, are going to do the wrong things," Robert Bjork says. "It's almost sinister."

Want to Remember Everything You'll Ever Learn? Surrender to This Algorithm | WIRED
Piotr Wozniak is the inventor of a software program called SuperMemo.

SuperMemo is based on the insight that there is an ideal moment to practice what you've learned. Practice too soon and you waste your time. Practice too late and you've forgotten the material and have to relearn it. The right time to practice is just at the moment you're about to forget.

SuperMemo Algorithm
A walkthrough of the various algorithms over the years. The justifications seem rather ad hoc, and it's unclear if he's working hard enough on understanding the underlying processes. In particular, he doesn't seem to have a good enough theory either of memory or of questions.
