The world’s available scientific and factual data is growing at an alarming pace, but how do we use all this information? How do we incorporate it into our decision making process? Wolfram|Alpha is unique on the web as a computational knowledge engine, intended to assimilate the world’s factual data and use it to answer your questions. Joshua Martell, content manager and all around data wrangler for Wolfram|Alpha, will give an inside look into how Wolfram|Alpha works, what it takes to make data “computable”, understand user input, and present meaningful results. Topics will include curation of raw data, storage and retrieval, and the unique technologies that make it all possible.
Joshua Martell joined Wolfram Research in 2005. Tasked with integrating various data formats into Mathematica, he quickly gained experience with a broad range of technical areas. Currently, he manages real time feeds for Wolfram|Alpha, including financial, metrological, and geospatial data. Joshua also works extensively on data interface and database technology.
