Wolfram Alpha – The Beginning of the End?

Thanks to our friend Zhen Tan tipping us over FaceBook, apparently a Internet driven super computer is about to launch May 2009. Take a look at the WolframAlpha tutorial of what this search engine wil do for humankind, and how the mighty Google pales in the kind of result WolframAlpha can deliver. Prepare to get blown away …

Read a little more review on Telegraph UK, or on Stephen Wolfram, the British mathematician behind this “computational knowledge engine.” This could be a Super Computer prototype we see in Terminator/Matrix that will give us what we need at first, and then destroys us in the end.

That’s if it delivers (and then starts to have its own mind)

I should stop watching those doomsday SciFi movies.
