This immediately raises the question of social level outcomes, one that could only be explained by a theory on how human actions interact in...
Making the world's knowledge computable
Today's Wolfram|Alpha is the first step in an ambitious, long-term project to make all systematic knowledge immediately computable by anyone. You enter your question or calculation, and Wolfram|Alpha uses its built-in algorithms and growing collection of data to compute the answer. Based on a new kind...

Even in the days of Windows 3.11, computers remained obscure and frightening to the masses.
Once computers infiltrated...
In the future, we may decide that a virtual existence, a life inside a fully immersive computer game where our every desire is fulfilled, is a more appealing option than the real world we currently inhabit. Many people have presented the idea that we are already in such a virtual reality, but I don’t believe this is possible. This is because...
Marie’s meditation ended with a bang, she slowly and carefully extracted herself from her cyber-autopoietic self-dissolution, realizing that an observer somehow disturbed her alignment with the infoflow.
