This week I was in San Francisco for Big Think’s Farsight 2011: Beyond the Search Box. I took copious notes but there was one comment in particular I found intriguing. Luc Barthelet, from Wolfram|Alpha said that their goal is not just to provide an answer, but show the route taken to arrive at the answer.  Then we’re free to question the validity of the answer. “I want to argue with a search engine. I want to be able to challenge its logic.”
