In His Own Words: Stephen Wolfram on Computational Knowledge

You have (hopefully) read our post on our exciting collaboration between Bing and Wolfram|Alpha to bring some of the amazing computational knowledge of Wolfram|Alpha into the Bing experience.

We had the privilege of sitting down and talking with none other than Stephen Wolfram himself a few weeks back to get his take on this exciting challenge of making more of the world’s knowledge computable. Below are some excerpts from that conversation, we hope you will enjoy them.
