Wolfram|Alpha knows it all!
I’m amazed by a new computational search engine that was launch over the weekend called Wolfram|Alpha. It semantically analyzes search terms and returns interesting computated results.
To give you a sense what’s impressive about Wolfram|Alpha, I’ve listed a sampling of searches and their corresponding results below. You can also watch this introduction video from Stephen Wolfram himself to get a good idea on this search engine.
I’m so enamored by Wolfram|Alpha that I’ve installed a firefox addon that adds Wolfram|Alpha results to Google search results. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/12006.
Mashable has a nice collection of Wolfram|Alpha easter eggs. Buzzfeed found that it knows superheroes’ secret identities. Meanwhile, folks on Friendfeed has come up with some really zany searches like: how much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?, how many peppers did peter piper pick? and why is the sky blue?
