According to Theo Gray, the co-founder of the company this goes beyond being just any software. It is a natural-language answering software that takes each question individually and answers them accordingly.
Most search engines answer simple and general topics properly. The problem arises when technical and the detailed questions have to be solved. Complicated questions on math, computer science, engineering etc. are answered effectively. Detailed and statistical questions are answered through summaries and graphs for better understanding.
