What is Wolfram Alpha?
Wolfram Alpha usually referred to as Wolfram|Alpha is a computational powerful knowledge search engine. This web application answers your questions related to any topic. No, it isn’t similar to Google. What Google just provides you sites containing the keyword you have searched on it. On the other hand, Wolfram Alpha is a computational search engine that will provide you the answer to any of the questions you have searched within the information it contains. Wolfram Alpha can be called an answer engine where you can get the answers to almost every subject and topic in the world. Whether you want to know about Math equations, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Engineering, Earth Science, Music, Data Science, Statistics, and the list is long enough to break my keyboard by typing the topics. It’s more like the amalgamation of Wikipedia and Google in a more powerful way.
Wolfram Alpha is simple and super easy to use. It accepts normal language in a phrase, term, a question format of the sentence, mathematical equations, the chemical equation, and everything. More than hundreds of sites (domains) are added and more being added regularly the Wolfram Alpha look through its huge collection of data and algorithms to compute accurate results to your queries. All the results and answers shown on the site are computed dynamically.
The user interface of the site is easy to understand and you don’t need any technical knowledge to use it. It is quite similar to other search engines but unlike other search engines, Wolfram Alpha gives you the exact answer to your particular question. While other search engines present you the site with relevant solutions to your searched keywords. Wolfram|Alpha gives you the result of your queries by computing the answer from externally sourced curated data in real-time. Wolfram Alpha is available to download on your iOS as well as Android smartphone for faster and easy access.
