Video Introduction:
Wolfram|Alpha in a nutshell

Wolfram|Alpha is a computational knowledge engine, not a search engine.

WOLFRAM|ALPHA uses built-in
knowledge
curated by human
experts
to compute on the fly a
specific answer and analysis for
every query.

SEARCH ENGINES index web
pages,
then look for textual matches,
then give you lists of links to follow.
