A colleague of mine sent me a video recently to a new resource, a “computational knowledge engine” called the Wolfram|Alpha that absolutely amazed me. This new product will open the door to educators everywhere and is worth checking out. If you take the time to watch the video, you get the full idea of how much you can get out of this. Great for students and teachers and just about everyone.
Wolfram|Alpha is the first step in an ambitious, long-term project to make all systematic knowledge immediately computable by anyone. Wolfram|Alpha uses its built-in algorithms and an ever-growing collection of data to compute the answers to your questions and calculations.
In this video, Wolfram|Alpha creator Stephen Wolfram gives a quick introduction to the computational knowledge engine.
