Wolfram Alpha

May 18, 2009

Playing around with Wolfram Alpha this morning seeing what it can do and what use it has.  Basically, it is a computational knowledge engine which has, as its central aim, the goal of making systematic data accessible to anyone.

Set up by a British physicist, the engine is dependent on two developments Mathematica and NKS.

The site though is just fun. You basically can just type in any question and Wolfram will provide an answer.

It will even reply to you.

How cool is that?

More later on once I play with it a bit more.
