WolframAlpha – the best answers engine

On 10 August, 2010 by Carol

This engine’s been around since 2009, but i just found it….and it’s awesome.

From Wikipedia:
Wolfram Alpha
(styled Wolfram|Alpha) is an answer engine developed by Wolfram Research. It is an online service that answers factual queries directly by computing the answer from structured data, rather than providing a list of documents or web pages that might contain the answer as a search engine would.

Try a search such as : US presidents and you’ll get a full list with them all and their exact terms in years. Or simply go to the available examples and try one.
Once you’ve got your results, you can export them to a pdf file.

Here’s just an example on how the returning data looks like. Depending on the subject, it can be short or a lot more extensive, as you can see if you do a search in the US presidents.

So if you need to know specific data about a subject, direct answers without having to look through hundreds of pages, then try WolframAlfa. You’ll love it!
