New search engine on the block. Is this a new generation of search engine or a great idea that won’t catch on? Either way it is looking like a brilliant idea and I’m sure a heck of a lot of work.
Wolfram Alpha Knowledge search engine will be launched today, Friday, May 15, beginning at 7pm CST. (so far they are late in launching it). Wolfram and his team have built what he calls a “computational knowledge engine” for the Web. So what does that mean? Basically it means that you can ask it factual questions and it computes answers for you in multiple formats. A screencast showing what it’s capable of is here. (You might need to use IE to view it)
Now this is one geeky search engine LOL.
