Wolfram Alpha now processing U.S. retail sales data

When I was a kid and used to fantasize about what the future was going to be like, I didn't envision a Google-like search engine. If anything, I thought the future would hold something more along the lines of Wolfram Alpha – an omniscient search box that would slice and dice numbers and facts in all sorts of crazy ways and spit out a bunch of cool graphs. And now, Wolfram Alpha has added...

DLS @ SXSW - Wolfram Alpha

If you've ever played around with Wolfram Alpha you know it is kinda like magic. Put in some words or ask a math question and bingo, there's an intelligent (and crazy accurate) answer. I spoke to managing director Barak Berkowitz about their Alpha "beta" and their future plans to put Wolfram Alpha on your web pages....

Wolfram Alpha kills its mobile site, pushes $50 iPhone app

Remember all the hoopla about Wolfram Alpha's powerful-yet-extremely-expensive iPhone app? The $50 pricetag got more attention than the app's capabilities - doing everything the Wolfram Alpha website can do, and basically giving you a graphing calculator on your iPhone. It just seemed foolish to pay $50 when Wolfram Alpha already had a perfectly serviceable iPhone optimized version of its website....

Wolfram Alpha for iPhone packs big features and a big $50 pricetag

When Wolfram Alpha, the (don't call it a search engine!) computation knowledge engine, announced an iPhone app, I assumed it would just be a nice front end for the website. I also figured it would be free. Surprise! The Wolfram Alpha app does a lot more than expected, and it also carries a hefty $50 price tag. This might not be the smartest business decision for Wolfram, considering that App Store...

WolframTones: Wolfram does music, mathematically

With all the buzz about the new Wolfram Alpha search engine, it's easy to forget that Wolfram works on other projects, too. The developers who brought you Mathematica also put their algorithmic muscle to work to create WolframTones, a music composition engine. It turns programs from within Wolfram's "computational universe" into midi musical compositions of all different styles and pitches. ...

Wolfram to launch "computational knowledge engine"

Wolfram Research, the makers of Mathematica, are at work on an ambitious new project that's due to launch in May. It's a "computational knowledge engine." What does a computational knowledge engine do? Wolfram is making as much human knowledge as they can manage computable by the new program, called Wolfram Alpha. Basically, you can ask it a question using natural language and it will give you...
