Wolfram’s latest: A database of every connected device in the world

January 7th, 2014 at 10:50 AM
Wolfram Alpha Connected Devices Project

Nearly everything at CES 2014 connects to the Internet. It can be an overwhelming prospect to imagine all of your devices interacting with one another, which is why Stephen Wolfram’s next major initiative will attempt to catalog each and every electronic device and household appliance on the planet that makes up the Internet of Things. The Wolfram Connected Device Project just launched on Monday, but already contains thousands of navigation systems, watches, vacuum cleaners and even a set of forks. Every single device also has its own information with data regarding the product’s battery life, form factor, price range, storage size and much more.

All of this structured information will be usable in Wolfram Alpha as well. If you want to compare several different fitness bands, just search for them in Wolfram Alpha and a chart will appear containing all of the relevant statistics. The next step will allow users to make even more complex inquiries to find exactly what they are looking for.

“We’re working hard to make the Wolfram Connected Devices Project an important and useful resource in its own right,” says Wolfram in a blog post. “But in the end our goal is not just to deal with information about devices, but actually be able to connect to the devices, and get data from them—and then do all sorts of things with that data.”

Jacob started covering video games and technology in college as a hobby, but it quickly became clear to him that this was what he wanted to do for a living. He currently resides in New York writing for BGR. His previously published work can be found on TechHive, VentureBeat and Game Rant.
