AI and the Wolfram Language Work toward Partial Automation in the Search for Cancer

26 May 2020, 1:55 pm | Wolfram Blog

NOTE: The following post contains real medical images. As more technology is folded into medical environments all over the world, Wolfram’s European branch has taken on work with the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS) in an effort to partially automate the process of cancer diagnosis. The task is to use machine learning to avoid [...]

Computational Video Premieres in Wolfram Language 12.1

19 May 2020, 2:14 pm | Wolfram Blog

Version 12.1 of the Wolfram Language introduces the long-awaited Video object. The Video object is completely (and only) out-of-core; it can link to an extensive list of video containers with almost any codec. Most importantly, it is bundled with complete stacks for image and audio processing, machine learning and neural nets, statistics and visualization and [...]

Quantum Chemistry: Step-by-Step Chemistry Series

14 May 2020, 7:20 pm | Wolfram Blog

After working our way through chemical reactions, solutions and structure and bonding, we close out our step-by-step chemistry series with quantum chemistry. Quantum chemistry is the application of quantum mechanics to atoms and molecules in order to understand their properties. Have you ever wondered why the periodic table is structured the way it is or [...]

Structure and Bonding: Step-by-Step Chemistry Series

8 May 2020, 2:00 pm | Wolfram Blog

We’re back this week with more chemistry, to explore molecular structure and bonding with Wolfram|Alpha and its step-by-step chemistry offerings. Read more on chemical reactions and solutions from previous weeks, and join us next week for our final installment on quantum chemistry! Structure and bonding in chemistry refer to where the atoms in a molecule [...]

From Sine to Heun: 5 New Functions for Mathematics and Physics in the Wolfram Language

6 May 2020, 5:02 pm | Wolfram Blog

Mathematica was initially built to be a universal solver of different mathematical tasks for everything from school-level algebraic equations to complicated problems in real scientific projects. During the past 30 years of development, over 250 mathematical functions have been implemented in the system, and in the recent release of Version 12.1 of the Wolfram Language, [...]

Chemical Solutions: Step-by-Step Chemistry Series

30 Apr 2020, 6:03 pm | Wolfram Blog

Last week, we kicked off a four-part series on Wolfram|Alpha’s step-by-step chemistry offerings with chemical reactions. Future posts will cover chemical structure and bonding along with quantum chemistry. We continue this week with chemical solutions, another foundational component of all chemistry classes. From the blood in your veins to the oceans covering the planet, solutions [...]

Mathematica 12 has powerful functionality for solving partial differential equations (PDEs) both symbolically and numerically. This article focuses on, among other things, the finite element method (FEM)–based solver for nonlinear PDEs that has been newly implemented in Version 12. After briefly reviewing basic syntax of the Wolfram Language for PDEs, including how to designate Dirichlet [...]

Tackling a Pandemic: A Computer-Based Maths Approach

27 Apr 2020, 8:17 pm | Wolfram Blog

How did the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) come up with their multi-phase response to tackle COVID-19? In this post, I investigate how the UK government’s original plan against the coronavirus aligns with the four-step computational thinking process. Teachers are welcome to use this post as a free resource. Please note: where possible, [...]

Chemistry Step-by-Step Solutions: Chemical Reactions

23 Apr 2020, 8:18 pm | Wolfram Blog

If you’re studying chemistry or are in a discipline requiring chemistry prerequisite courses, then you know how expensive the required textbooks can be. To combat this, the chemical education community has developed open educational resources to provide free chemistry textbooks. However, although free textbooks keep cash in your wallet, they don’t include solution guides for [...]

Advancing Coding Skills, Teamwork & Computational Thinking at the Wolfram Emerging Leaders Program

21 Apr 2020, 8:00 pm | Wolfram Blog

Computational thinking is an increasingly relevant and important skill to develop. The ability to break down problems into their component parts, and to piece together a solution quickly and accurately, is important for a variety of careers and pursuits in the 21st century. Even more important, perhaps, is that this skill enables you to express [...]
