Wolfram|Alpha

The world around us is filled with data. We live in the information age, and often, our greatest challenge is not that we don’t have the right data, but we don’t know what to do with it. Wolfram|Alpha is an innovative service that tries to take some of the complexity out of the data around us, sorting it into info we can really use.

Wolfram|Alpha is built on the power of Mathemetica, a popular mathematics and computational tool used in education and research alike. It can solve advanced math, but can also take that same power to help you do research into population, finance, health, and more. It’s even the power behind much of the iPhone 4S’ Siri, helping dig up facts for users in seconds.

The Wolfram|Alpha team has constantly released updates to the service to help it handle increasingly advanced queries, and today, they’ve launched the biggest change to the service yet with the new Pro offering. Now you can put it to work on your own data, not just public data they’ve amassed, and you can download data to continue your research elsewhere.
