Overcoming Artificial Stupidity

Stephen Wolfram, the creator of Wolfram|Alpha, just wrote a great blog post about how Wolfram|Alpha is “on average giving complete, successful responses to more than 90% of the queries entered on its website”. Along the way we saw some great examples of “artificial stupidity: places where Wolfram|Alpha gets the wrong idea, and applies its version of ‘artificial intelligence’ to go off in what seems to us humans as a stupid direction.”:
