Wolfram Alpha (styled Wolfram|Alpha) is an answer engine developed by Wolfram Research. It is an online service that answers factual queries directly by computing the answer from structured data, rather than providing a list of documents or web pages that might contain the answer as a search engine would.[[#cite_note-3|[4]]] It was announced in March 2009 by Stephen Wolfram, and was released to the public on May 15, 2009
