Wolfram Alpha (also styled WolframAlpha and Wolfram|Alpha) is a computational knowledge engine or answer engine developed by Wolfram Research. It is an online service that answers factual queries directly by computing the answer from externally sourced "curated data", rather than providing a list of documents or web pages that might contain the answer as a search engine might.

Wolfram Alpha, which was released on May 15, 2009, is based on Wolfram's earlier flagship product Mathematica, a computational platform or toolkit that encompasses computer algebra, symbolic and numerical computation, visualization, and statistics capabilities. Additional data is gathered from both academic and commercial websites such as the CIA's World Factbook, the United States Geological Survey, a Cornell University Library publication called All About Birds, Chambers Biographical Dictionary, Dow Jones, the Catalogue of Life, CrunchBase, Best Buy, the FAA and optionally a user's Facebook account.

Wolfram Alpha is a wonderful resource for students everywhere. I generally use it for math problems, but you can use it to learn about a lot of other things as well - seriously, there's way too many things to list, from socioeconomic data to finances to fine art. Unfortunately for college students living on campus (or anyone else with bad WiFi), it's hard to use with weak internet connection and usually takes several tries to load since it has so many interactive features. You can change the background color if you want to; you can use it to generate math problems to practice for a test (you have to pay for that, though); you can input images and then analyze/process them (again, requires Pro, which you have to pay for). There are still lots of functions available for free users, though, and it's helped me many times on math homework that I couldn't figure out. It's a very underrated search engine that more people need to know about and utilize.

Strange decision to use Comic Sans as the font for the titles of the website headings.

I could not find a way to navigate away from the homepage to any deeper links with more information. One would expect that the left skyscraper section would be hotlinked to more examples.

too many spam sites and broken links displayed, they need to clean up the search results other than traffic-related sites displayed on the first page. how about they request additional info at the search text entry.

I like this company. Their professional staff and advisers always provide quality services. Booking and related to it processes take not more than several business days, that's why I can consult them right before my trips. Recommend it!
