Wolfram Alpha told WebProNews today it has released beta versions of Wolfram Alpha Widgets and Widget Builder to allow users to create and share widgets on their blog or website.
"Widgets are the next step in our goal of making Wolfram Alpha ubiquitous–available to everyone, everywhere," said Barak Berkowitz, Managing Director, Wolfram Alpha.
"With widgets you get a brand new way to experience the power of Wolfram Alpha and share it with your readers and friends. By putting the massive data repository and computational capability of Wolfram Alpha in everyone’s hands, we fully expect to be surprised and impressed by the innovative ways people put this power to use in their areas of interest and expertise."
Wolfram Alpha widget can be built in a few steps using the drag-and-drop Widget Builder. Widgets can also be personalized, allowing users to customize the look and feel of the widget as well as the display of the results. Widgets can be created from any Wolfram Alpha query.
