Oxford, UK — Wolfram Research launches Version 12 of Mathematica and the Wolfram Language free on the new Raspberry Pi 4. Six years of partnership between Wolfram Research and the Raspberry Pi Foundation have resulted in sophisticated computation being more accessible than ever. Using Mathematica and the Wolfram Language, educators, students and innovators can learn how to code, make new things and answer complex questions about the world around them.
A major milestone for Wolfram Research and the result of over three decades of innovation, Mathematica and Wolfram Language 12 add over 270 new functions across 103 different areas to their thousands of built-in functions. From today, the power of Wolfram Language 12 is available for free on every Raspberry Pi 4 via the Wolfram website, and soon via Recommended Software from the Raspberry Pi Preferences menu. Version 12 lets anyone immediately use the latest machine learning for multiparadigm data science, work with blockchains and seamlessly access the full Wolfram Knowledgebase.
The combination of Raspberry Pi and the Wolfram Language enables users to question and interact with the outside world in a uniquely powerful and accessible way. Information from an enormous variety of sensors, cameras and input devices can be integrated directly and computed with the Wolfram Language, and with the power of the Raspberry Pi 4, operations now run 100% faster on average.
As part of our ongoing partnership, Wolfram and Raspberry Pi have created a collection of projects designed to help anyone get started with coding, including creating weather dashboards, building machine learning classifiers and using AI for facial recognition. See these projects on the Raspberry Pi website.
