Freely available on the web, this "computational knowledge engine" is designed by Wolfram Research, an educational software company best known for producing Mathematica software. This resource can perform calculations, but it can also retrieve statistics and other reference information. Because it does not connect computed results directly to the original data sources, Wolfram Alpha is not an ideal resource in terms of accountability. In spite of this, it remains a capable tool.
