WolframAlpha

I’ve just spent a few unproductive minutes trying to coax interesting search results out of WolframAlpha about ‘Conspiracy Theory,’ with the only results being the films ‘Conspiracy’ and ‘Conspiracy Theory’1. This hardly seems useful, although it does remind me that I haven’t seen those films…

Notes

  1. According to the WolframAlpha ‘Terms and Conditions’ I must now give you the citations: http://www60.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=conspiracy+theories http://www60.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=what+are+conspiracy+theories%3F http://www60.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=what+is+a+conspiracy+theory%3F http://www60.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=conspiracy+theory

    • Really? Because the website says:

      Our goal is to accept completely free-form input, and to serve as a knowledge engine that generates powerful results and presents them with maximum clarity.

      That sounds like it should present usable data from a search-string. In respect to the query ‘What is a Conspiracy Theory?’ it only suggests films, which seems like fairly unpowerful, not particularly clear results.
