What Is The Wolfram Alpha Computational Knowledge Engine?

I love learning new skills and concepts, researching ideas, especially things I don’t know anything about. Thankfully, I have a good memory and can retain much of what I read.

Just yesterday I came across a tool called the “Wolfram|Alpha Computational Knowledge Engine” that has already simplified my life and saved me time.

Here’s what the Wolfram|Alpha home page says:

Making the world’s knowledge computable Today’s Wolfram|Alpha is the first step in an ambitious, long-term project to make all systematic knowledge immediately computable by anyone. Enter your question or calculation, and Wolfram|Alpha uses its built-in algorithms and a growing collection of data to compute the answer. Based on a new kind of knowledge-based computing

Watch Stephen Wolfram’s Introduction to Wolfram|Alpha:

Wolfram|Alpha was created by Stephen Wolfram. Stephen is a distinguished scientist, inventor, author, and business leader. He’s also the creator of Mathematica, the author of “A New Kind of Science”, and the founder and CEO of Wolfram Research.

Enjoy!
