Wolfram 'search engine' goes live

A web tool hailed as a significant rival to search giant Google has gone live to the public.

Wolfram Alpha is called a computation knowledge engine rather than a search engine and wants to change the way people use online data.

It aims to give people direct answers to queries rather than send them to other sites where they may find what they are seeking.

The system is the brainchild of British-born physicist Stephen Wolfram.


  1. Like any search engine... the first thing I looked up was "Erick Lobao"

    I had no idea there's a city in Portugal named Lobao (population 6,049). There's also an "Erick Oklahoma (population 1,045).

    Check it out hereI guess it makes sense... its running a comparison between Erick & Lobao.

    Check out Cleveland & Orlando - Game 1 starts tomorrow.

    This could be useful to help answer arguments.

  2. I hope Cleveland smokes Oklahoma like a Philly Blount!
