Powering Engineering Education with Wolfram Virtual Labs

Published October 8, 2019

How can you make teaching come alive and be more engaging? For many educators, the answer turns out to be not so much a single solution, but rather a set of tools that can vary according to subject and even by student. So today, I want to add something new to the pedagogical toolkit: Wolfram Virtual Labs.»

Announcing the Rule 30 Prizes

Published October 1, 2019

How can something that simple produce something that complex? It's been nearly 40 years since I first saw rule 30—but it still amazes me. Long ago it became my personal all-time favorite science discovery, and over the years it's changed my whole worldview and led me to all sorts of science, technology, philosophy and more.»

From Data to Insights: An Online Course for Learning the Multiparadigm Workflow

Published September 17, 2019

Our interactive Multiparadigm Data Science (MPDS) course has been up at Wolfram U for over a month now, and we're pretty satisfied with the results so far. Hundreds of people have started the course—including students from our first Data Science Boot Camp, who joined us at Wolfram headquarters for a three-week training camp. Thanks to the success of the boot camp, we have also had several projects submitted for advanced MPDS certification, which will soon be available within the interactive course.»

The Ease of Wolfram|Alpha, the Power of Mathematica: Introducing Wolfram|Alpha Notebook Edition

Published September 12, 2019

Wolfram|Alpha has been a huge hit with students. Whether in college or high school, Wolfram|Alpha has become a ubiquitous way for students to get answers. But it's a one-shot process: a student enters the question they want to ask (say in math) and Wolfram|Alpha gives them the (usually richly contextualized) answer. It’s incredibly useful—especially when coupled with its step-by-step solution capabilities. But what if one doesn't want just a one-shot answer? What if one wants to build up (or work through) a whole computation? »

Version 12 of Mathematica and the Wolfram Language on the New Raspberry Pi 4

Published July 3, 2019

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. »

What We’ve Built Is a Computational Language (and That’s Very Important!)

Published May 9, 2019

I've sometimes found it a bit of a struggle to explain what the Wolfram Language really is. Yes, it's a computer language--a programming language. And it does--in a uniquely productive way, I might add--what standard programming languages do. But that's only a very small part of the story. And what I've finally come to realize is that one should actually think of the Wolfram Language as an entirely different--and new--kind of thing: what one can call a computational language.

Version 12 Launches Today! (And It’s a Big Jump for Wolfram Language and Mathematica)

Published April 16, 2019

Today we're releasing Version 12 of Wolfram Language (and Mathematica) on desktop platforms, and in the Wolfram Cloud. We released Version 11.0 in August 2016, 11.1 in March 2017, 11.2 in September 2017 and 11.3 in March 2018. It's a big jump from Version 11.3 to Version 12.0. Altogether there are 278 completely new functions, in perhaps 103 areas, together with thousands of different updates across the system. Read more here.»
