Users will be able to explore knowledge, data and their relationships. The answers may be presented as questions, diagrams, graphs or links to other related questions and sources. No longer will you be faced with search engine results that contain the terms in your query or that might answer your question. The work will be done and answer(s) given by the Wolfram Alpha computational knowledge engine.
In May of 2009, when Wolfram Alpha goes live, you will be able to ask a question in natural language. The search engine will compute an answer for you. If there is more than one answer, the alternatives will be computed as well.
