Wolfram Alpha Licensing Technology to Microsoft Bing

Posted Aug 21, 2009

Stephen Wolfram made an announcement today giving an update about his search engine.  For those of you that do not know about Wolfram Alpha, it is one of the most sophisticated search engines that exist today.

It can calculate complex math problems and can even use A.I. to output anything related to a keyword search.  Wolfram Alpha originally launched back in May.

Over the summer Wolfram Alpha classified over 54,000 bugs and suggestions and fixed what was not working in the past.  The company even launched a partnership with Microsoft to license technology over to Bing.com.

Wolfram Alpha’s search technology licensing to Bing.com will also be beneficial for Yahoo! users.  Bing.com will be powering Yahoo!’s search technology for at least 10 years.
