I need to get plans for an EMP cannon up for sale somewhere and use Boston Robotics footage for advertising. And that creepy ostrich thing made of hands.

This is not a joke, when I asked the same question, it did the exact same thing.

WA expects math problems, not factual questions. It's a web front end for a limited version of Mathematica.

(Which was the bomb to play with in the early-nineties. It was a fantastic REPL, like a Jupyter notebook system twenty-five years ago. Which makes it less gob-smacking now, but at the time 3D graphs of algebraic functions or building a crude public key encryption system out of a few cells worth of functions was awesome. )

Mathematica is still pretty fun. I use it in most of my calculus classes.

I'm sad Wolfram Alpha no longer does the thing when you ask it what the function of a rubber duck is, though.

The problem isn't with WA, it's that Siri thinks, "How long can a lobster survive out of water" is a WA question.

That this sort of idiocy still happens gives me hope that AI still has a ways to go before declaring humans obsolete.

I dunno. Google might be onto something. Start at the South Park Brewing Co. with great plans and then just forget about them and go to Tijuana.
