a nerdy post this time...
Wolfram Alpha is going to be huuuge! (Or not.)
Who doesn´t use Google.com as their standard search engine? But very soon, Wolfram Alpha is going to take over the world with this new kind of search engine which is actually not just another search engine, but an answer engine (actually it´s a Computational Knowlegde Engine), which gives you the answer of your questions supported with graphs and statistics......how cool is that?
What time is it in Italy?
What is the answer to GDP of France divided by the GDP of Italy?
Yesterday, the creator of this engine, Stephen wolfram, gave a demonstration at Harvard University.
I haven´t seen the whole video, but I´ve read somewhere that he also discussed my name:
Want to know how popular the name Daniel is in the United States over time and how many people are currently estimated to be alive with that name, plus their ages? Wolfram Alpha can do that, too[...]
But wouldn´t it be cool if there´s a search engine with an image upload section which gives answers to questions like:
- Who´s the dude behind this window across the street from where I lived? -
