I spent the better part of the day playing with this gem. The possibilities are endless. I have a feeling these kind of sites are the rage of the future.

Imagine if you could have an audible version of this programed in your house. You could ask out loud anything and it could answer with all statistics.

"Computer, I just found out I have acid reflux. Compute my current life expectancy at my current age. "


Try it!

I saw this in his TED presentation, absolutely awesome!

I wonder if he will sell it out to google, or try to compete with them?

Wish I could buy stock in this!

I wish they would gear the product toward home AI. It would not be hard to program this into a home touch panel system for audible requests. We have all seen it in futuristic movies. They would corner the market in home AI.

It wouldn't require much at all to do this.

We already have speech recognition software that is even pretty inexpensive.

One would merely need to code up an interface between the Speech Recognition software that would save your microphone input and create a text string to forward to the web page via java script and html.

The java script and html would simply call the web site via IP protocol forwarding your query in the form of a string of text encapsulated in html so the page could read it to:

For example......
