Hi All --

The announcement of the forthcoming Wolfram Alpha system is rightly raising a lot of interest.

However, there's no harm in testing the water the bit.

Here are a couple of challenge examples for Wolfram Alpha.  Both examples are online, where they can be viewed run and edited, using a standard browser.  In each case, end users are able to update the knowledge that is used to answer the questions.

Example 1:   English query leading to oil industry supply chain calculations over potentially large SQL tables, with English explanations of the results at the end user level.  Explanations of why expected results are absent.

Example 2:  English query over diverse data sources, leading to dollar estimates of possible savings from moves towards energy independence, with English explanations of the results at the end user level. Explanations of why expected results are absent.

Hope this helps the discussion.
