The computational answer engine WolframAlpha is set to launch tonight, May 15, 2009.

I, for one, am extremely excited.


Wolfram Alpha is not a search engine, as it does not look up answers to queries on an index of web pages or documents. Queries and computations are similarly posed to it via a text field, but it computes answers and relevant visualizations on the fly from a knowledge base of curated, structured data. Alpha thus differs from semantic search engines, which index a large number of answers and then try to match the question to one.

How have I not heard of this, this changes everything! Espicially good help for quarreling ATS members on semantics!

I'm already favoriting it.

I presume this does the same thing as KGBKGB?
