Stephen Wolfram: Computing a theory of everything

Stephen Wolfram, creator of Mathematica, talks about his quest to make all knowledge computational -- able to be searched, processed and manipulated. His new search engine, Wolfram Alpha, has no lesser goal than to model and explain the physics underlying the universe.

Theists like to argue that everything is irreducibly complex. Stephen Wolfram says the opposite. Simplicity can generate complexity. A few simple rules can create massively complex systems and even randomness.
