Wolfram Alpha

Are you one of these people who want to know the origins of everything. Who seek pure information on specific subjects? Check out: Wolfram Alpha. A new search engine that works like the Enterprise Computer. A shame you can't command it using your voice...yet!

Type in anything you want. From your birthdate, favorite animal, currency conversion or anything else. It also works using your IP address so it knows where you are and some results may be based on your location.

Their goal (as stated on the website) is "to make all systematic knowledge immediately computable and accessible to everyone. We aim to collect and curate all objective data; implement every known model, method, and algorithm; and make it possible to compute whatever can be computed about anything. Our goal is to build on the achievements of science and other systematizations of knowledge to provide a single source that can be relied on by everyone for definitive answers to factual queries.

Wolfram|Alpha aims to bring expert-level knowledge and capabilities to the broadest possible range of people—spanning all professions and education levels. Our goal is to accept completely free-form input, and to serve as a knowledge engine that generates powerful results and presents them with maximum clarity.

Wolfram|Alpha is an ambitious, long-term intellectual endeavor that we intend will deliver increasing capabilities over the years and decades to come. With a world-class team and participation from top outside experts in countless fields, our goal is to create something that will stand as a major milestone of 21st century intellectual achievement."
