Wolfram Alpha challenges Google's dominance

David Coursey | May 15, 2009
Wolfram's new search tool, called Alpha, is a mix of human-selected and edited content mixed with more traditional search engine features.

I still have this lingering feeling that there is more out there and that Google may not make an easy transition to whatever the "next big thing" in searching turns out to be.

Maybe it is the semantic search, which Google is already dabbling in. Or maybe something else will appear to help us find information more effectively.

For a while, it seemed like Google had vanquished all opposition, real or potential. Wolfram Alpha shows this is not the case and I am happy for it. There is still hope for better search results.
