Wolfram Alpha Is Like Your Computing Genie In A Bottle…
Got a Question? Wolfram Alpha Has The Answer.
Are you one of those people that ask Google a question and expect an answer? Yeah, me too. Google’s mission is to find the answer to your question by searching the web and returning hundreds of websites that may or may not give you the right answer. Wolfram Alpha is here to solve that problem. Wolfram Alpha, the answer engine is built on computational and mathematical software to answer your search questions. Wolfram Alpha “tries to understand what you are asking, based on context, to solve the question.” It pulls information from the web, and computes the answer to the question.
The answer engine answers questions like - How many calories are in a plain bagel? Who is the casting director for Game of Thrones? How many championships did the LA Lakers win? Or How many planes are flying overhead right now? Answer this question requires Wolfram Alpha to use your browser’s GPS data with real-time data; it will also give you flight data and cost. The answer engine doesn’t just return a host of websites for you to find the information, it actually post the answer for you and offer more common information if needed.
