Bing Integrates Wolfram Alpha


Microsoft has announced a deal which will bring the Wolfram Alpha search tool to its Bing search service, allowing users to take advantage of the Wolfram Alpha algorithms and search tools within Bing queries.

Started in May 2009 by noted scientist Stephen Wolfram, Wolfram|Alpha is an ambitious project to, as the company?s website says, "make all systematic knowledge immediately computable by anyone."

Bing will start creating and presenting computational knowledge in search results over the next several days as Microsoft will roll it out in the US.

Microsoft said that it would be providing access to Wolfram|Alpha?s advanced algorithms and within the Bing experience. "This new and exciting work is completely aligned with our broader goal of enabling faster, more informed decisions. Specifically, we will bring nutritional information and tools into Bing?s search results, as well as some straight up hard math and homework help," Microsoft said.

For example, a helpful tool is the body mass index that tracks a user's workout progress. Bing has introduced Wolfram|Alpha?s body mass index interactive form on Bing's results page. If someone searches for 'bmi' he will get the option to enter his height and weight. The 'Calculate' button will bring a detailed Body Mass Index analysis directly on Bing.

The improved fitness results is just one of the computational search results that Microsoft's partnership with Wolfram|Alpha will bring to Bing. Bing will also rely on Wolfram|Alpha's ability to solve complex math functions and to provide users with knowledge about unique math concepts.
