‘Google killer’ Wolfram Alpha gets public demo


‘Google killer’ Wolfram Alpha gets public demo - Telegraph
The site's main focus will be on hard facts and raw data. Wolfram Alpha will be able to grab information from the web and live information feeds, such as share prices and news headlines, as it generates results. Users will be able to ask a simple question – such as the date of birth of Winston Churchill – and receive the correct answer in return. Dr Wolfram said the engine would also be able to “number crunch” numerous sets of data to produce an answer to a complex question, such as a country’s annual GDP.
