Bing and Wolfram Alpha strikes licensing deal

Wolfram Alpha and Microsoft’s Bing search engine have reached a licensing deal that allows Bing to present some of the specialized scientific and computational content that Wolfram Alpha generates. Representatives from Microsoft and Wolfram Research declined to comment on the deal. It’s not clear whether Bing results’ll carry Wolfram’s branding (i.e., results “Powered By Wolfram Alpha”), but there’ll be some sort of presence. It’s unlikely that Bing’s going to turn over the bulk of its results to Alpha, however. Wolfram founder Stephen Wolfram admitted that linguistic problems’re to blame for half of the occasions when Wolfram Alpha doesn’t return a result. That percentage’s changing as Wolfram refines the science behind Wolfram Alpha, but it’ll take some time.
