Wolfram technology users from around the world gathered in Champaign, Illinois, our headquarters, October 21–24, for another successful Wolfram Technology Conference. Attendees got access to the latest information about our emerging technologies and gained insights from colleagues who shared innovative ways of using Wolfram technologies.


The conference kicked off with a keynote by Stephen Wolfram, and then rolled right into the other 125 scheduled talks. Also featured were a connected devices playground, “Meet-Ups,” social/networking events, small group meetings, roundtable discussions, and tours of Wolfram and the Blue Waters supercomputer at the University of Illinois.

This year’s Wolfram Data Summit brought together innovators in data science, creators of connected devices, and leaders of major data repositories for two days of high-level discussion about challenges and opportunities facing the worldwide data community.

This annual Summit offers an exclusive group of thought leaders an opportunity to meet and share insights into new and ongoing projects. But in light of the high caliber and exceptionally broad interest of this year’s presentations—and for the first time ever—we are sharing videos of the Summit presentations with the public, including the keynote from Stephen Wolfram, CEO of Wolfram Research and creator of Wolfram|Alpha.

Summer has drawn to a close, and so too have our annual internships. Each year Wolfram welcomes a new group of interns to work on an exciting array of projects ranging all the way from Bell polynomials to food science. It was a season for learning, growth, and making strides across disciplinary and academic divides. The Wolfram interns are an invaluable part of our team, and they couldn’t wait to tell us all about their time here. Here are just a few examples of the work that was done.

It’s been many years in the making, and today I’m excited to announce the launch of Mathematica Online: a version of Mathematica that operates completely in the cloud—and is accessible just through any modern web browser.

In the past, using Mathematica has always involved first installing software on your computer. But as of today that’s no longer true. Instead, all you have to do is point a web browser at Mathematica Online, then log in, and immediately you can start to use Mathematica—with zero configuration.

Here’s what it looks like:

Earlier this month we released Mathematica 10, a major update to Wolfram’s flagship desktop product. It contains over 700 new functions and improvements to just about every part of the system.

Mathematica + Raspberry Pi

Today I’m happy to announce an update for Mathematica and the Wolfram Language for the Raspberry Pi that brings those new features to the Raspberry Pi. To get the new version of the Wolfram Language, simply run this command in a terminal on your Raspberry Pi:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install wolfram-engine

This new version will also be pre-installed in the next release of NOOBS, the easy setup system for the Raspberry Pi.

We’ve got an incredible amount of new technology coming out this summer. Two weeks ago we launched Wolfram Programming Cloud. Today I’m pleased to announce the release of a major new version of Mathematica: Mathematica 10.

Wolfram Mathematica 10

We released Mathematica 1 just over 26 years ago—on June 23, 1988. And ever since we’ve been systematically making Mathematica ever bigger, stronger, broader and deeper. But Mathematica 10—released today—represents the single biggest jump in new functionality in the entire history of Mathematica.

Stephen Wolfram speaking at 2013 WTCIt’s been a productive 2014 already here at Wolfram with tons of new technology being released and a whole new world of possibilities opening up. One great way to learn more about these accomplishments is to join us at the 2014 Wolfram Technology Conference.
The conference takes place Wednesday, October 22 through Friday, October 24, in Champaign, Illinois (our headquarters). This year’s talks will highlight the Wolfram Language and the thriving ecosystem growing around it, including the new Wolfram Programming Cloud, Mathematica,
Wolfram|Alpha, SystemModeler, and more.

At the conference, you’ll hear from Stephen Wolfram himself. Plus our top Wolfram developers will cover exciting new features in-depth, while industry experts will show you how you can use Wolfram technologies in your everyday work to accomplish more–and do so more efficiently.

Mathematica and Wolfram|Alpha are powerful technologies for deepening students’ and researchers’ understanding of complex topics in math and science. These recently published books incorporate engaging Mathematica and Wolfram|Alpha examples and code into texts written for undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers.

Composite Materials in Piping Applications: Design, Analysis and Optimization of Subsea and Onshore Pipelines; Topology of Digital Images: Visual Pattern Discovery in Proximity Spaces; Green's Functions in the Theory of Ordinary Differential Equations

Composite Materials in Piping Applications: Design, Analysis and Optimization of Subsea and Onshore Pipelines
Dimitrios G. Pavlou explains the design, analysis, and performance of composite materials in oil, gas, water, and waste-water piping. The text is accompanied by a CD-ROM containing algorithms for pipe design and analysis using Mathematica.

Topology of Digital Images: Visual Pattern Discovery in Proximity Spaces
James F. Peters carries forward recent work on visual patterns and structures in digital images and introduces a near set-based topology in this book. To provide a better understanding of digital images, Mathematica scripts are used to illustrate the fabric and essential features of images.

Green’s Functions in the Theory of Ordinary Differential Equations
In this text written for graduate students and researchers interested in the theoretical underpinnings of boundary value problem solutions, Alberto Cabada provides a complete and exhaustive study of Green’s functions, including two appendices with Mathematica content.

If you were one of the 72,000 highly energized people in Austin, Texas, earlier this month for the 2014 SXSW Music, Film, and Interactive Festival, you might have had the opportunity to connect with Stephen Wolfram and the Wolfram team at this year’s event. Known for showcasing cutting-edge technologies and digital creativity, Stephen was invited by the SXSW committee to present a featured talk for the third year in a row.

If you missed Stephen live in Austin—and even if you didn’t—the “speaker’s cut” of his featured talk, “Injecting Computation Everywhere,” was posted to his Blog last week. In it, Stephen presents his vision of a future where there is no distinction between code and data, and showcases the Wolfram Language through examples and demos using Wolfram Programming Cloud, Data Science Platform, and other upcoming Wolfram technologies.
