Normally the idea of yet another search engine is something most people might find exciting at first, only to be let down later once they realize that it is not going to be the next Google. This said, the demo of the Wolfram Alpha is a completely different animal indeed.
Despite a fairly significant snafu with the video during the presentation itself, the benevolent media overlords managed to put together enough video footage whereas the masses were able to get an idea of what this search demo is all about.
Designed to provide the ultimate research tool for scientists and researchers, the Wolfram Alpha search engine proved to be very useful for things like searching for LDL 180 down to then displaying a graph to show how this affects the general population. Again, as a research tool, Wolfram’s search engine is amazing.
