Wolfram Alpha Screencast

15 May 2009

Stephen Wolfram, who famously built Mathematica, demoes what appears to have potential to revolutionize the way we look for information online.

The information presented from a query in the demo is nothing short of amazing, providing remarkable relevant and interesting facts and graphs. The ability of the Wolfram Alpha engine to calculate the results rather than relying on static text and combining or comparing different entities makes for some very intriguing possibilities.

It will be very interesting to see where this is going.
