Making knowledge computable

WorlframAlpha's computing engine has come alive today. According to the website its goal is to make all systematic knowledge immediately computable and accessible to everyone. With an aim 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. The goal is to build 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.
