    Bing teams up with Wolfram Alpha

    Microsoft has teamed up with a web tool once hailed as a rival to Google to provide results for its search engine Bing.

    Wolfram Alpha aims to answer questions directly, rather than display a list of links like a search engine.

    The "computational knowledge engine" is the brainchild of British-born physicist Stephen Wolfram.

    It will be used to bolster Bing's results in areas such as nutrition, health and mathematics.

    The partnership will initially be rolled out in the US.

    Bing has been gradually grabbing market share from other search engines since its launch in May.

    Figures from Experian Hitwise suggest its market share in the US rose from 8.96% in September to 9.57% in October.

    The figures put it well behind market leader Google which has 70.6% of the market.
