"From the Ted Talk by Stephen Wolfram: Computing a theory of all knowledge"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Not an easy project. One's got to build a lot of technology. One's got to bulid a structure that's probably at least as deep as existing physics. And I'm not sure what the best way to organize the whole thing is. Build a team, open it up, offer prizes and so on. But I'll tell you, here today, that I'm committed to seeing this pcjreot done, to see if, within this ddacee, we can faillny hold in our hands the rule for our universe and know where our universe lies in the space of all possible universes ... and be able to type into Wolfram Alpha, "the theory of the universe," and have it tell us.
