Wolfram Beta?

If you're in the Tech circuit you must've surely heard of WolframAlpha. I will not go into the details. It's a search engine that tries to 'answer' the user queries rather than turning up rel;evant search pages. In essence it is doing the 'computation' part and returning the relevant answers.

I gave it a go with some questions like

-where was tom cruise born

-what is pi

-gravitational accln

tell you what, It answered all the above.

It failed on these questions

-fastest supercomputer?

-how many indians in Microsoft USA

-Who is Aziz Siddiqui(yes,I tried)

wolfram met with mixed responses from the scientific community.
