> London Computational Knowledge Summit to Introduce Wolfram|Alpha
> Technology to Enterprise Data
>> Wolfram|Alpha, a website that provides free access to
> computational knowledge, is hosting a one-day event in London on
> 9 June 2010 to introduce the idea of computational knowledge as
> part of enterprise infrastructure. The London Computational
> Knowledge Summit will share the insights of well-known experts on
> the problems of knowledge management as well as the experiences
> of key Wolfram|Alpha developers applying the new ideas of
> computational knowledge.
>> “Just making data available doesn’t make it practically usable.
> Inside businesses or as a citizen, people need answers to their
> questions, not raw data for them to sit and analyse,” says Conrad
> Wolfram, Strategic Director of Wolfram Research. “With the right
> interface and automation, computation can bridge this gap,
> democratising analysis and access.”
>> Speakers will include:
> * Stephen Wolfram (by video conference), Founder and CEO, Wolfram
> Research and Wolfram Alpha LLC
> * Andrew Dilnot, Principal, St Hughes College
> * John D Barrow, Professor, University of Cambridge
> * Conrad Wolfram, Strategic Director, Wolfram Research
>> Topics covered will include:
> * Delivering knowledge-based computing to everyone
> * Democratising high-level computation
> * Automating custom answer generation from data
> * Changing technical communication with computable documents
> * Impact on education and skills priorities in the computational
> knowledge economy
> * Integrating knowledge computing into an enterprise strategy
>> About Wolfram Research
>> Wolfram Research, Inc. is a powerhouse in technical innovation
> and pursues a long-term vision to develop the science,
> technology, and tools to make computation an ever-more-potent
> force in today’s and tomorrow’s world. The company is the
> developer of Mathematica, the world’s most powerful global
> computation system, now used by millions around the world, and
> Wolfram|Alpha, the widely used and continually growing
> computational knowledge engine. Wolfram Research also maintains
> the world’s largest free network of technical information
> websites, including MathWorld–the #1 website devoted to
> mathematics–and the Wolfram Demonstrations Project. For more

>> About Wolfram Alpha LLC
>> Wolfram Alpha LLC is a Wolfram Research company. Wolfram|Alpha’s
> long-term goal is to make all systematic knowledge immediately
> computable and accessible to everyone. The company aims to
> collect and curate all objective data; implement every known
> model, method, and algorithm; and make it possible to compute
> whatever can be computed about anything. Wolfram|Alpha builds on
> the achievements of science, and other systematizations of
> knowledge, to provide a single source that can be relied on by
> everyone for definitive answers to factual queries. Wolfram|Alpha
> was created with Mathematica–itself the result of more than 20
> years of development at Wolfram Research–and is being developed
> by a world-class team of experts led by Stephen Wolfram, a
> distinguished scientist, inventor, author, and business leader.
