Wolfram Alpha a new search engine will start on May 2009. What is differences between Wolfram Alpha and the rest of the search engines ? Wolfram Alpha is based of mathematical algorithms and and heuristics. The search engine will give you the right answer for a question not a amount of pages which contain single words or combination of words. Wolfram Alpha is developed by a team around Stephen Wolfram. Stephen Wolfram is known for his works in theoretical particle physics, cosmology, cellular automata, complexity theory, and computer algebra. He is also the developer of Mathematica.
Stephen Wofram wrote on his Blog ” All one needs to be able to do is to take questions people ask in natural language, and represent them in a precise form that fits into the computations one can do. I’m happy to say that with a mixture of many clever algorithms and heuristics, lots of linguistic discovery and linguistic curation, and what probably amount to some serious theoretical breakthroughs, we’re actually managing to make it work … It’s going to be a website: www. wolframalpha. com. With one simple input field that gives access to a huge system, with trillions of pieces of curated data and millions of lines of algorithms.”
If this search engine will outclass google what will happen to SEO and online marketing ? Will a new market be developed ?
I hope this search engine will work as described. A new exciting project with multiple possibilities.
