 Jon McLoone
The Wolfram|Alpha approach to knowledge
This event took place on Wednesday 25 November 2009 at 11:30

In May, a new computational knowledge engine, Wolfram|Alpha, was launched. By layering computational knowledge on large sets of curated, semantically marked up data, it attempts to provide direct bespoke answers to users queries. This talk will present Wolfram|Alpha and discuss issues related to semantic interpretation and disambiguation, collation and presentation of information and the encoding of knowledge. The speaker, Jon McLoone, is a developer from Wolfram Research, the makers of Wolfram|Alpha and the technical computing system, Mathematica.
