An incredible new computational search engine, came on line today.
Ask it a question, and it searches the web, pulling in real time line data where ever possible, computing and showing you the answers not only in mathematical form, but it uses graphs, and sounds, where appropriate.
It came on line today, a product from the brain of that British born genius Stephen Wolfram, designer of 'Mathematica' http://www.stephenwolfram.com/about-sw/
I have hardly been able to try this amazing new search engine out... But I think it will soon out compete Google,
since produces all its answers in a Mathematical way.
So far its estimated the amount of ice cream eaten by the three countrys I asked it. Plus actual amounts consumed over the last 5 years.
It even works out how best to produce an invisible sphere.
Wish I could really understand some of the Astronomical answers.
Take a look at the Audio/Visual, Demo here first:- http://www.wolframalpha.com/screencast/introducingwolframalpha.html
It can see 'Wolframalpha' virtually fortelling the future?
