with 2 comments

wolfram alphaIf you have been keeping in line with the latest news about Wolfram Alpha, the supposedly Google killer search engine which has been generating quite a lot of buzz around the web, you will be happy to know that it has just been launched recently. We really wanted to know how this newcomer would compare to Google. So in that light, we took it for a quick test drive and here are some of the test searches we found.

Apparently Wolfram Alpha is more of a data search engine rather than a queries-based search engine and is more of a wiki-based killer than a Google killer.It relies more on a data database with info and stats, graphs and all the analytical stuffs.  Anyway, unless you are the type who likes data and are doing some quick facts research, Wolfram Alpha might not be suitable for you, we recommend you still stick to Google. Here is a quick detailed run-down review from TechCrunch about Wolfram Alpha and below is a quick tibits of info on how exactly Wolfram Alpha works.

As of now, Wolfram|Alpha contains 10+ trillion of pieces of data, 50,000+ types of algorithms and models, and linguistic capabilities for 1000+ domains. Built withMathematica—which is itself the result of more than 20 years of development at Wolfram Research—Wolfram|Alpha’s core code base now exceeds 5 million lines of symbolicMathematica code. Running on supercomputer-class compute clusters, Wolfram|Alpha makes extensive use of the latest generation of web and parallel computing technologies, including webMathematica and gridMathematica.
