Wolfram|Alpha Enhancements since Launch

Since launching Wolfram|Alpha, we have successfully released a new version of the site each week. Below is a summarized list of the new datasets and features that have been added to Wolfram|Alpha since May 18, 2009.

Enhancements to the site include approximately doubled content and computation algorithms; significantly increased linguistic recognition; “nearest interpretation” and basic language translation technology; many new frameworks for comparing, combining, and selecting data; much more extensive cross-connections between different types of data and computations, and API; and iPhone and iPad apps.

Here is a sampling of specific new types of content:
