Of course, you have heard of “search engine” and pretty well, you can relate to Google, Yahoo, MSN and other search engines out there. I always love how the search engines have given us immense information and data when we want it at that. Information sources generated in milliseconds are returned back to us as links. Clickable and readable. Easy and quick. Hey, I remember Sharon Stone’s movie with the word, quick. The quick and the dead, Is that it? Oh well, that is not related to the topic anyway. 🙂
Okay, let me get this straight now. Have you heard of computational knowledge engine? Oh well, the Wolfram Alpha was created by no less than the genius himself, Stephen Wolfram – the creator of Mathematica.
What is good about Wolfram Alpha as an engine is that, it does its computation right on the spot and returns to you the result that you wanted. It is like an all-in-one sort of browser-based computing engine. So far, it is living up to the people’s expectations.
Wolfram Alpha although is not here to rival the search engines but still it is getting its wider share of attention now especially to those who wanted results up to the level of computed answers .
Try to imagine getting the answer using a Taylor’s Series? Take this lead–> Wolfram Alpha
Wolfram Alpha, Wow! You got the bulls-eye! It is a real alpha, point blank.
You are like Dwight Howard dunking the ball. 🙂
