  • Now this Stephen was a doctorate in particle physics at the age of 20.Unlike a search engine which gives a list of documents and website that might contains an answer.But was officially launched on 18 May,2009.
  • > It works on the code written for mathematica which wolfram research has been using over 25 years.> Almost any workflow involves computing results, and that's what Mathematica does—from building a hedge-fund trading website or publishing interactive engineering textbooks, to developing embedded image-recognition algorithms or teaching calculus
  • -> It is capable of responding to particularly phrased natural-language fact-based questions such as "Where was Mary Robinson born?" or more complex questions such as "How old was Queen Elizabeth II in 1974?" It displays its "Input interpretation" of such a question, using standardized phrases such as "age | of Queen Elizabeth II (royalty) | in 1974", the answer of which is "Age at start of 1974: 47 years", and a biography link. Wolfram Alpha does not answer queries which require a narrative response such as "What is the difference between the Julian and the Gregorian calendars?" but will answer factual or computational questions such as "June 1 in Julian calendar".
  • One example of a live dataset that Wolfram Alpha can use is the profile of a Facebook user. If the user authorizes Facebook to share his or her account details with the Wolfram site, Alpha can generate a "personal analytics" report containing the age distribution of friends, the frequency of words used in status updates and other detailed information. Within two weeks of launching the Facebook analytics service, 400,000 users had used it.Downloadable query results are behind a pay wall but summaries are accessible to free accounts.> Topics under development philosophical, products..

    1. Wolfram Alpha® computational™ knowledge engine By : Aatman Kothari
    2. OUTLINE • • • • • • • • • • Introduction History Working Components Technology Possibilities Partners Advantages or Usages Conclusion Bibliography
    3. Introduction • Also written as WolframAlpha or Wolfram|Alpha. • It is a computational knowledge engine or answer engine. • It was released on 15th May 2009. • It answers factual queries by computing the answers for “externally sourced curated data”.
    4. Intro continued.. • It is mostly based on wolfram’s earlier product Mathematica. • Mathematica a computational toolkit that encompasses computer algebra, symbolic and numerical computation, visualization, and statistics capabilities. • Mathematica is a computational software program used in many scientific, engineering, mathematical and computing fields. It was conceived by Stephen Wolfram and is developed by Wolfram Research of Champaign, Illinois.
    5. History Project lead by Stephen Wolfram  It is the culmination of 5 years of work, and 25 more years of previous development  Stephen started Wolfram Research in 1987, focusing mainly on the Mathematica software 
    6. History Continued.. • In 2002 Stephen publishes “A New Kind of Science” • In 2004 the company tries to apply the concepts from the book to a real-world product and thus started developing Wolfram Alpha. • In May 18th, 2009 Wolfram Alpha is officially launched to the public
    7. The Working • Users submit queries and computation requests via a text field. • Wolfram Alpha then computes the answers from the curated data. • Wolfram Alpha can only provide robust query results based on computational facts, not queries on the social sciences, cultural studies or even many questions about history where responses require more subtlety and complexity.
    8. What can it do? Here’s a list of what it can do :- → Mathematics → Step-by-Step Solution (PRO) → Statistics & Data Analysis → Units & Measures → Words and Linguistics → People & History → Dates & Time → Data Input (PRO) → Chemistry → Culture & Media → Money & Finance → Image Input (PRO) → Art & Design → Socioeconomic Data → File Upload (PRO) → Astronomy → Health & Medicine → Physics → Engineering → Places & Geography → Food Nutrition → Education → Materials → Earth Sciences → Shopping → Organisations → Life Sciences → Weather & Meteorology → Technological World → Sports & Games → Computational Sciences → Transportation → Music (see here)
    9. THE COMPONENTS • Linguistic analysis • Curated data • Dynamic computation • Computed presentation
    10. The Technology • Wolfram Alpha is written in 15 million lines of Mathematica code and runs on more than 10,000 CPUs. • The database currently includes hundreds of datasets, such as "All Current and Historical Weather". • The curated datasets are checked for quality either by a scientist or other expert in a relevant field.
    11. Licensing Partners Searches in following is powered by Wolfram Alpha : Microsoft Bing DuckDuckGo Engine For factual question answering : Apple’s Siri Samsung’s S Voice Dexetra’s Iris (for Android) Voice Control Software on Blackberry 10.
    12. Screenshots (S Voice on Galaxy S3)
    13. Screenshots (Siri on iPhone 5)
    14. Wolfram Products
    15. Applications (For Android)
    16. What’s it good for? • Finding facts • Comparisons • Conversions • Solving crossword puzzles • Mathematical Calculations • Presentation of analysed facts
    17. Conclusions • It is all a matter of representing data and mapping queries to the set of things they can compute about. • Uses an internal and pre-structured database to find the answers to the queries. • Computation brings a lot of value when comparing it to search engines like Google. • Little to no information available about how the system works internally.
