Stephen Wolfram is in the business of making people smart. His creations, including Mathematica, Wolfram Alpha, and Wolfram Language, help people think computationally, and he’s not being arrogant when he compares them to the invention of mathematical symbols. As the founder and CEO of Wolfram, he oversees a team of 800 people, but he highly prizes learning every technical detail he can, and maximizing his own input.

Reading actual scientific research can greatly improve your understanding of the world, but if you run into unfamiliar measurements you can find the process derailed. Writer Ben Young Landis suggests using Wolfram Alpha to convert that measurement into something you can understand.
Wolfram Alpha, the intelligent, computational search engine, has just launched a new tool that breaks down your Facebook activity into numerous charts and graphs. If nothing else, it's an eye-opening reminder of everything Facebook knows about you.
Another handy use case for Wolfram Alpha: enter a date such as September 8, 1980 and it will immediately tell you it was a Monday.
Wolfram Alpha may be a data geek's dream, but if you're not all that interested in its more obscure uses, here's one thing we could all use a little help with: step-by-step math calculations.
Wolfram Alpha, the computational knowledge search engine, launched its iPhone application today.
Wolfram Alpha, the "computational knowledge engine" that's steadily updating, has a good but hidden use as a word and language tool for use while writing. In other words, it can be a smart and snappy thesaurus/dictionary/translator/anagram tool.
