Wonderful Wolfram Alpha hubris.

And you thought Google, Caesar, etc. were ambitious.

Wolfram|Alpha’s long-term goal is to make all systematic knowledge immediately computable and accessible to everyone. We 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.

I approve of this.

I am, however, extremely disappointed that it doesn’t appear to be able to do game theory at all, by my testing.

    I was very existed with the idea,I found fantastic this:

    Wolfram sees his new program as being part of a history of mankind’s attempts to systematize knowledge. “We have the encyclopedists trying to write everything down. We have people like John Wilkins trying to create an analytical language for thought. We have philosophers and scientists hoping to find a universal theory of the world. But all these attempts founder on the vastness and the subdivisibility of the tasks.”

    But I got dissapointed when I tested
