I will give an insider’s tour of Wolfram|Alpha, a unique project designed to make all systematic knowledge available to and computable by anyone. Attendees will learn how Wolfram|Alpha’s teams of Mathematica programmers, knowledge-domain experts, and data curators have been able to transform raw data—from public and private sources, both on- and offline—into “computable knowledge” that can be accessed and manipulated through natural-language input.
