Strong Interest in Wolfram|Alpha Seen at Tokyo Event

Published May 20, 2015

Following the successful Mathematica and Wolfram technology events in Japan in 2014, Wolfram Research Asia Ltd. organized a Wolfram|Alpha event on April 28, 2015. Two hundred and thirty audience members packed into the lecture hall at Tokyo Institute of Technology (TiTech) to see the talks by Noriko Yasui, a W|A developer, and Dr. Kenji Yoshida, a math teacher at Waseda University High School. WRAL organized the event together with TiTech and the Institute of Molecular Science (IMS). Noriko presented a general introduction to Wolfram|Alpha and showed how Programmable Linguistic Interface functions in the Wolfram Language can be used to create a custom Wolfram|Alpha implementation. Yoshida reported that using Mathematica and Wolfram|Alpha stimulated students in his math classes, emphasizing that more students took an interest in mathematics compared to those educated in a more conventional fashion. The day's presentations were followed by plenty of good questions, reflecting strong interest and enthusiasm in the audience. In addition, the event attracted a lot of people new to Wolfram technology, thanks to the announcement made by TiTech and IMS to various academic communities.»
