Comments on Mathematica Founder Developing Search Engine – PC Magazine
Mathematica Founder Developing Search Engine – PC Magazine – Steven Wolfram is developing a search engine that is attempting to make knowledge computable. That is to say, Wolfram is attempting to make a search engine that can understand the relationships between different pieces of knowledge and then can respond to queries against that knowledge. At the moment there is only a place holder for the site at http://www.wolframalpha.com/ but the initial site is set to launch in May 2009.
Cellular Automata – The Force of Color
Colors form a space, seemingly continuous and varying, much like the space of our reality. Such a space might seem easy to picture, much like a rainbow, colors seeping into each other, becoming something new and different. Yet what is the structure of such a space? Certainly there must be more than just an endless blending of colors. The questions isn’t an easy one to answer because it turns out that there are already a number of structures for giving color spatial form. In these experiments, the space of colors is explored by thinking of that space much like gravity or as a force that shapes and curves the space around it.
