Wolfram Alpha struck a deal with Bing

Microsoft’s search engine Bing is taking little help from a smart friend, a compute scientist Stephen Wolfram who just presented a report recently citing what the team at Wolfram Alpha, his new search engine, did this summer.

After long talks, it finally struck a deal with Bing to license some of its data, according to sources close to Wolfram. This might give a stab to Google, which has a geek rivalry with Wolfram over the growing area of using structured data to improve search results.
