Wolfram|Alpha Pro

Wolfram Alpha has launched Wolfram|Alpha Pro, a new service building on its Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine. A key feature of the new service is the ability to upload virtually any common kind of file or data for automatic analysis. Raw tabular data, images, audio, XML and dozens of specialised scientific, medical and mathematical formats are among the more than 60 formats currently supported. Free-form linguistics can also be used to make specific queries about uploaded data.

Richer output is added to Wolfram|Alpha, automatically generating CDF (Computable Document Format) with interactive controls for animation and manipulation. In addition, users of Wolfram|Alpha Pro gain options for customising graphical and tabular output for presentations and other purposes, and for downloading raw generated data.

Free trial access to Wolfram|Alpha Pro is available immediately, with subscriptions starting at an introductory price of $4.99 per month, or $2.99 per month for students. Educational and site pricing are also available. The ‘standard’ Wolfram|Alpha will remain free of charge, but only subscribers will have access to new Pro-level features and functionality.
