Remember the Star Trek computer? It's finally happening--with Wolfram|Alpha. Building on 25 years of development led by Stephen Wolfram, Wolfram|Alpha has rapidly become the world's definitive source for instant expert knowledge and computation.
Across thousands of domains--with more continually added--Wolfram|Alpha uses its vast collection of algorithms and data to compute answers and generate reports for you.
Parts of Wolfram|Alpha are used in the Apple Siri Assistant; this app gives you access to the full power of the Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine. Domains covered by Wolfram|Alpha include:

Extremely powerful computational knowledge engine which could answer almost all computational related queries
The engine could understand and interpret natural language inputs and produce a result in computational language. The custom keyboard with mathematical symbols and Greek alphabets also makes it much more handy to ask about calculations.
This engine would be most useful for mathematics and science students, since it could compute complicated mathematical expressions such as calculus problems which could not be answered in other search engines.
Tips for using the product
Type keywords of the query instead of whole sentence allows the computer to interpret it more accurately.
