More Alpha Hints

Stephen Wolfram talks to Rudy Rucker on his upcoming Alpha release. The work has gotten lots of interest from people like myself who have had long-time interest in anything promising to embed intelligence on the Web. I have much respect for Wolfram's Mathematica, but have been unable to get my hands on Alpha yet. The article and several other 'reviews' I have seen helps, but it is still an enigma. Wolfram writes: " .. “It will raise the level of scientific things that the average person can do. People will find that the world is more predictable than they might have expected. Just as running Google is like having a reference librarian to help you, running Wolfram|Alpha will be like having a house scientist to consult for you.” ... ' ... quite a claim.
