Search Engine News: Bing + Wolfram Alpha; Google + World Bank

November 16, 2009

In search engine news last week, Bing announced a collaboration with Wolfram Alpha where certain data from Wolfram – nutritional data and mathematics – will be available through Bing.

More features to come this week – see the posting for more details.

In related news, Google announced that it now has added World Bank data to its search results (such as population, children per woman in Brazil, etc.).  This is in addition to US Census data and BLS data which was added in April.
