Wolfram|Alpha

Introduction


Wolfram|Alpha is an engine for
computing
answers

and
providing knowledge
.


It combines computational power with built
-
in
expert knowledge to provide answers


It works by using its vast store of expert
-
level
knowledge and algorithms to automatically
answer questions, do analysis, and generate
reports.


WOLFRAM|ALPHA uses
built
-
in knowledge

curated by
human experts

to compute on the fly
a
specific answer

and analysis for every query.
