Wolfram Alpha Computational Knowledge Engine

Wolfram Alpha Answer Engine gets us to what people thought computers would be able to do 50 years ago: quickly find answers to all the factual questions!

Stephen Wolfram, the British physicist behind this recently launched project clarifies that Wolfram Alpha is a website with one simple input field that gives access to a huge system, with trillions of pieces of curated data and millions of lines of algorithms.


It is not a search engine that lists out numerous links to information that exist on the web. Instead, it actually computes the answer using the available data and displays it in a easily readable format.
