...it's an amazing interface like Mathematica.

I was just reading a blog critique of WolframAlpha a couple days ago.
Stephen Wolfram wrote:
Alpha is built on top of 5 million lines of Mathematica code which currently run on top of about 10,000 CPUs (though Wolfram is actively expanding its server farm in preparation for the public launch).
...there was another blog entry which gave some examples of problem areas, but I can't find it again. Basically, some expected information is missing (should grow in time); and inferences are highly constrained to specific problem domains (could also be solved in time, but increases the need to refine search parameters).

Mathematica has been my favorite high-level language for several years.

Wouldn't you be able to write a proper A.I. in less than 5 million lines of *any* code? Very Happy and 10000CPUs... I hope its for the masses and not for the inefficient Mathematica code. I only hope because I haven't seen Mathematica perform.

i view it as a presentable statistical search engine. which is really usefull for researchers in almost any fields.

try ask "what is the meaning of life" to wolfram uncle, would it hangs? or maybe 42? somebody that got 2 hour demo plez try that. :p

It does answer "42" for the meaning of life. Laughing

It's the "Alpha" and not the "Omega". Laughing Proper AI has not be discovered. So, we don't know how many lines of code it will take. Presently, it is at 3 billion base pairs.

You mean that the "3 billion base pairs" is AI?!

For sure one is tempted to question the inclusion if the "A", but also some people would question the inclusion of the "I" Wink

Why the hell would it take so much CODE? Neurons and their status are DATA, not CODE. Confused

Base pairs refers to DNA, not neurons. And DNA is more like a recipe than program code. bitRAKE's comparison was not really comparable, but doesn't matter, it sparked some discussion.

> people per mile in utah
Wolfram|Alpha isn't sure what to do with your input.

> utah population
...
population density | 27.2 people/mi^2 (2000)

> population density utah
27.2 people/mi^2 (2000)

> population density
average | 133 people/mi^2
median | 199 people/mi^2
highest | 44 188 people/mi^2 (Macau)
lowest | 0.0695 people/mi^2 (Greenland)

I don't even get the joke, but the computation engine is really really good; especially for maths. I am using it quite a lot.

From what I've read about bing from beta testers is it has a great front end but its searches still hurt in the 'relevence' area. Some have said it's only Live rebranded.

Wolfram Alpha now answers your burning questions such as
* How much wood could a woodchuck chuck?
* Where’s Waldo?
* If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? (Wolfram answers no Wink )
* Can you pass a Turing test?
* Are you Skynet?

I doubt bing could beat that Razz

> distance to moon / diameter of moon

109.3 moons can be placed between the earth and moon. Very Happy On average it takes 1.267 seconds for light to travel the distance.
