  • As computers continue to perform an increasing number of tasks for us, it’s never been more important to learn how to use computers in creative ways. Creative computing, an interdisciplinary subject combining coding with artistic expression, allows us to blend technology with human experiences. Learning to create in this way can help you unlock your […]
  • Four years ago, as the COVID pandemic wreaked havoc to class and event schedules, instructors and organizations were scrambling to create meaningful learning opportunities for students. In April 2020, Stephen Wolfram challenged the Wolfram U team to establish a unique online program for building computational skills with Daily Study Groups. The program was enthusiastically received […]
  • As computational science progresses, we are seeing leaps and bounds in what can be realized for helping the world. The technological advancements in biology have paved the way to better study medicine and the patterns of the environment in order to help the sick and optimize resources. Whether you’re classifying an animal for the first […]
  • It’s no secret: quantum computing has been poised to be “the next big thing” for years. But recent developments in the quantum ecosystem, including major investments by companies such as IBM, Google, Microsoft and others, are the best indicators that now is the time to begin preparing for potentially viable quantum applications—and to identify where […]
  • At Wolfram Research, we are excited for the April 8 total solar eclipse and plan to observe this extraordinary event in several ways. Read about the science and math of this rare phenomenon in Stephen Wolfram’s new book, Predicting the Eclipse: A Multimillennium Tale of Computation, and then find eclipse specifics for your location with […]
  • This year’s Global Astronomy Month is off to an exciting start for North America in anticipation of the total solar eclipse on April 8. In light of this momentous event, the following is a list of resources that bring Wolfram Language and astronomy together—including expert video guides, projects and books—for computational astronomers at every level. […]
  • Explore the contents of this article with a free Wolfram System Modeler trial. A wind turbine gearbox, susceptible to erratic wind loads, frequently fails well before its intended lifespan. Such failures, occurring globally, not only cause significant downtime but also lead to substantial economic losses. Can simulations help avoid this? The first animation delves into […]
  • Happy Leap Day 2024! A leap day is an extra day (February 29) that is added to the Gregorian calendar (the calendar most of us use day to day) in leap years. While leap years most commonly come in four-year intervals, they sometimes come every eight years. This is because a traditional leap day every […]
