    Looks cool, but I entered such simple questions as "What is genetic engineering?" and Wolfram couldn't come up with a response.

    Overhyped bullshit. All that semantic search crap is worthless - who the hell want to write whole long question to the search engine when u can just put one or two words and get more relevant results?

    Of course not, garbage in garbage out your query is horrible for an engine like WA.

    Try searching "scnn1a" which is a gene and see the difference. "What is genetic engineering?" is a lot of noise and nothing specific.

    Many people think you can use WA like Google, well you can't.
