Wolframalpha bot to threaten Google

@ Uberface, we're big fans of semantics-based artificial intelligence. Here is Wolframalpha, a venture of Stephen Wolfram (picture), the founder of Wolfram Research, makers of Mathematica, the famous fully integrated technical computing software.

According to his own talk, Wolframalpha would answer your questions online : will offer answers to questions, online - answers that do not necessarily already exist somewhere on the web.

Via one simple input field, users will have access to “a huge system, with trillions of pieces of curated data and millions of lines of algorithms.”

Launch is promised in May.
