Wolfram Alpha ‘to launch on Monday’ – Telegraph

Wolfram Alpha, the new search engine challenger to Google which claims to actually understand your question and then compute an answer, is apparently launching on Monday. Presumably this is not unconnected with Google’s announcement this week of Google Squared:

Unlike a normal search engine, Google Squared doesn’t find webpages about your topic — instead, it automatically fetches and organizes facts from across the Internet.

All good news – it’s too easy finding facts with Google, now we can get some thinking done for us as well.
