I don’t know how familiar you are with “Wolfram,” but I’ll assume you aren’t familiar with it at all and enlighten you. Wolfram makes a software called “Mathematica” that is pretty much my savior. It’s the smartest software I’ve ever seen. What does it do? It does math. Easy math. Hard math. Black-magic math. It graphs, it makes music, it maps, it decrypts, it slices, it dices, and it’ll take your dog for a walk.
Today though, Wolfram is debuting something else, something new. They’ve created a search engine called “Wolfram Alpha.” It’s not like Google in that it doesn’t search for websites, in fact it’s all a closed system, but what it does search for is information. Any information. It will tell you the GDP of any country you’d like, graph it against any country you’d like, or tell your the history of that country’s GDP. It can tell you about scales in music, it can teach you about genetics, it can give you material properties, and blah blah blah blah blah.
“But Google can do this too!”
No. Google can not do this. Wolfram Alpha is so much beyond Google in terms of comprehension. It interprets what you search for and gives you exactly what you want to a ridiculous degree of accuracy and depth. I can’t get into too much detail describing this now because I need to study for my final on Monday, but here’s the important stuff.
1) Watch this video NOW:
3) Be online tonight at 8 PM Eastern to watch the live webcast of Wolfram Alpha going live.
That’s all for now!
