[quote]The new system, Wolfram Alpha, showcased at Harvard University in the US last week, takes the first step towards what many consider to be the internet's Holy Grail

Sounds promising, Skeeve. I agree with you about the 'crazy person contingent'! One went into a political rant featuring Al Gore, while another used the phrase "while electricity lasts"! Now that's funny!:lol:

I assume this all related to just the English language. It makes me wonder what the hard drive capacity of its server is. It must be massive. Maybe that's what they meant about "while the electricity lasts".
I'll drink to that. Or anything else for that matter.
I have high hopes for Wolfram. I would love to see the day that our computers can look stuff up for us when we ask it questions but that day is still a way's off. This is a step in that direction though.
