I attended the Wolfram Neural Networks Boot Camp 2020, and that inspired me to incorporate elements of data science and machine learning in my course. The helper functions for machine learning make it quite easy to experiment and introduce such applications to students. We chose to perform image recognition and classification problems that are routinely […]

When I am at blockchain conferences, holding sales calls, at the grocery store, on an elevator or pretty much anywhere, I find myself explaining why I believe that non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are one of the most exciting new areas of technology. During my time as CEO of Wolfram Blockchain Labs (WBL), I’ve worked with our […]

Are you planning to start university or college next year? If you’re anything like me, making that next step in your education can be a daunting prospect. Some of you might be worried about being able to keep up with your new classmates, others about maintaining a position at the top of the class—and plenty of you probably fall somewhere in the middle.

Of all mathematical operations, addition is the most basic: It’s what we learn first in school. Historically, it is the most ancient. While the simple task of getting the sum of two numbers is simple, sums of many numbers can easily turn into a challenging numerical problem if the number of summands is very large.

In late 2020, Wolfram first made single sign-on (SSO) available to campuses with unlimited site licenses, providing a convenient way for all faculty, staff and students to use their campus credentials to log in to Mathematica Online and other browser-based Wolfram products. Even during the middle of an academic year, dozens of campuses successfully tested […]

One year ago I released my book The Math(s) Fix: An Education Blueprint for the AI Age. It’s been great to have seen it so well received in the media—featured in Forbes, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal and even winning the 2021 Independent Press Award for Education—as well as praised by individuals from all walks of life.

On June 7, the FBI seized 63.7 bitcoin (BTC), approximately $2.3 million USD, from one of the addresses to which DarkSide’s cluster, described in my earlier post, sent their ransom funds. Normally, this should have been inaccessible to anyone without a private key for that address. The FBI apparently managed, however, to obtain one.

Using Wolfram technologies has always been a part of my working process—from asking Wolfram|Alpha questions in college to using the Wolfram Cloud to set up reminders and forms in my everyday work. Nowadays, I think about the ways that our users can employ our technologies. I like to build on things that I perhaps should […]

Let me tell you a story about how to trace Russian hackers’ cryptocurrency funds using only public knowledge, some educated guesses and the Wolfram Language. But first, a little background information. On May 7, 2021, Colonial Pipeline was the victim of a ransomware attack, which forced the largest fuel pipeline in the US to shut […]
