Wolfram Alpha

WolframAlpha launched. (If you need catching up, here's a screencast explanation.) It looks like fun to play with so far, but it's hard to understand its depth... Update: decent On The Media story on it too.


Looks like Wolfram Alpha doesn't know Brooklyn.


"In classic stereotypical robot fashion, Wolfram Alpha also doesn't understand love:

Assuming love is a language | Use as a movie or a surname or a word instead"

Name sounds funny. Not quite fitting for a 'computational knowledge engine'; unlike for a search engine.
