Almost everyone has a greater need to process information and compute answers than they have capability to do so. How can modern computing and knowledge management bridge this divide? Can we democratise expertise for analysis as successfully as the web and search have democratised retrieval of the base information? How will this affect the “knowledge economy”—business and government information, R&D, and technical education? Conrad Wolfram’s talk will introduce these and other key topics of the conference.
