Wolfram|Alpha: A Bit Racist?

May 24, 2009

What goes on under the hood at Wolfram Alpha is a mystery to my mind, but after seeing the results of this search, I hope whatever it is gets an overhaul quickly.
You see, I found this image on the web, browsing for random images (lol).
I then did a search of my own to dismiss any Photoshopping concerns. The results were the same in each case: Racist synonym trees that associated the word dumb with black.
What the heck, Wolfram?
