Website of the Week: Wolfram Alpha


wolfram alphaThis week’s Website of the Week is Wolfram Alpha. This site is a computational knowledge engine, as opposed to a search engine. It uses verifiable information collated by humans and mathematical algorithms to answer questions and generate reports on almost any topic. A great starting place for your information search on any subject. The tool is particularly good at comparing things. Take the Wolfram Alpha tour here.
