Wolfram|Alpha introduces a fundamentally new way to get knowledge and answers— not by searching the web, but by doing dynamic computations based on a vast collection of built-in data, algorithms, and methods.
You can use Wolfram|Alpha like a search engine, but it does a lot more than a search engine. Simply type your question into the search box. You can ask things like “125+74.56″, or “climate New York” or “facts about Galileo” and then explore the answers.

Why do we include Wolfram|Alpha in the index? Because there are many questions that it knows the answer to and many ways in which it can help us learn.
