Developing a New Data Analysis and Visualization Course: Tackling an Infodemic with Computation

17 September 2020 @ 4:01 pm

A few months before I accepted a Wolfram Research internship—around March—I was very fearful, and so was the majority of the world. We knew very little about the novel coronavirus, and the data was just not robust. In addition to the limited data we had, the scientific process necessarily takes time, so even that was [...]

Navigating the New World: Adjustments with Wolfram and Technology to Help You

15 September 2020 @ 7:50 pm

In March, my work life changed dramatically, as it did for many around the world. After working in an office environment for almost 25 years, I was told that I needed to work from home for the first time. So I took my laptop, power cord and extra battery home with the expectation that I’d [...]

Wolfram|Alpha Notebook Edition Turns One: Now with Support for Chemistry, Demonstrations and More

11 September 2020 @ 7:44 pm

Wolfram|Alpha Notebook Edition was released nearly a year ago, and we’re proud to share what the team has been working on since. In addition to the improvements made to Wolfram|Alpha itself, new input and output suggestions were added. There were parsing fixes, additions to the Wolfram|Alpha-to-Wolfram Language translation and some of the normal improvements one [...]

Wolfram Plans to Offer Classes for Homeschoolers This Semester, and We Want to Hear from You!

2 September 2020 @ 11:38 pm

Schooling looks a little different in 2020. Whether it’s technical issues with the transition to online courses, decreased physical attendance or delayed and last-minute openings, we’re all feeling the pressure caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. At Wolfram Research, we’ve been involved in education for decades and count millions of parents, teachers and students as both [...]

You Can’t Have a Function Repository without Having Some Fun

25 August 2020 @ 6:35 pm

While programming in the Wolfram Language, I am able to quickly and easily get results—one of the best aspects of writing code in a high-level language. The Wolfram Language is so easy to use that I have the freedom to pursue ideas on a whim, even if I know those ideas may not accomplish anything [...]

Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) in the Wolfram Language

18 August 2020 @ 4:35 pm

A noteworthy achievement of artificial intelligence, since it is driven by artificial neural networks under the label deep learning, is the ability to create artistic works to generate images, text and sounds. At the core of this breakthrough is a basic method to train neural networks that was introduced by Ian Goodfellow in 2014 and [...]

Learn Linear Algebra in Five Hours Today with the Wolfram Language!

14 August 2020 @ 1:44 pm

Linear algebra is probably the easiest and the most useful branch of modern mathematics. Indeed, topics such as matrices and linear equations are often taught in middle or high school. On the other hand, concepts and techniques from linear algebra underlie cutting-edge disciplines such as data science and quantum computation. And in the field of [...]

Playing Cards with Alice and Bob: Using Secure Multi‑Party Computation and the Wolfram Language to Determine a Winner

6 August 2020 @ 4:58 pm

While catching up with my old friends Alice and Bob on Zoom a few days ago, I became intrigued by their recent card game hobby—and how they used the Wolfram Language to settle an argument. To figure out who gets to go first at the start of the game, they take one suit (spades) from [...]

The Wolfram High School Summer Camp Went Virtual, and It Was an Experience!

30 July 2020 @ 7:39 pm

For more on Wolfram’s summer education programs, read our post about the Wolfram Summer School. This year marked the ninth annual Wolfram High School Summer Camp, and it was a truly amazing experience. Forty-four students joined us remotely from around the world—from almost on the doorstep of Wolfram’s headquarters in Illinois to as far-flung as [...]
