September 3, 2013 — The Summer 2013 Wolfram Interns

Each summer a group of interns arrives at Wolfram Research to work on a host of exciting projects that not only prepare them for their future careers, but also give them the opportunity to make some great contributions to Wolfram technologies. One such contribution this year was the “Fun Curves” project for Wolfram|Alpha that took drawings of famous cartoon characters and turned them into mathematical equations.

When 11-year-old Jesse Friedman won a programming prize at the Wolfram Technology Conference last year, I pondered the diversity of our global user community—from children to Nobel Prize laureates, from CTOs to astronauts, to the thousands of people on the planet who help the world tick every day using the tools we make.

We always have a great atmosphere at our annual Technology Conference, where developers and users mingle and share their stories. Imagine if we could take this interaction and somehow make it available every day to everyone. We hope to achieve this with Wolfram Community, a new virtual home for our big family, which we are very pleased to announce today. Now the people who make our wonderful technologies and the people who use them to make wonderful things are just a few clicks away from each other.

At the outset, Wolfram Community is a platform for questions and answers, idea sharing, and discussions about all of our technologies—including Mathematica, SystemModeler, Wolfram|Alpha, and all the rest. With time, not only do we envision uniting users across our technologies, but that the system will grow to provide additional features, including deeper integration with our products themselves, file sharing, and much more, offering a medium designed for creative collaboration. And if you already have a Wolfram ID, you’re all set to go—just sign in and start chatting.

Last year we released Wolfram Finance Platform, beginning a new chapter in the way the financial world uses Wolfram technologies. Today we’re pleased to announce Wolfram Finance Platform 2, which expands and improves the groundwork begun by our first version.

One set of new capabilities that Finance Platform 2 introduces is a major enhancement to the way financial analysis is deployed: automated report generation.

Report Generation allows you to create documents quickly and easily using Wolfram Finance Platform documents. Since Report Generation is built on Finance Platform‘s Computable Document Format interface, it’s easy to add it into your normal workflow.

Data for the report can come from a variety of sources, such as the result of a computation, a database query, or Finance Platform‘s integrated computation data source or integrated market data streams. Portfolio performance, risk analyses, and market/economic outlook are just a few of the applications that can take advantage of Report Generation.

April 26, 2013 — Matthew Day, Data Repository Manager

Next month I’m on a discussion panel at The Now and Future of Data Publishing symposium in Oxford, UK. I’m expecting this to be a good day and, if you’re in the area, I recommend you think about coming along (it’s free!).

We’re very interested in academic data. Over the past 20 years or so, publishers have changed in some big ways, such as shifting from print to online or adopting new open access business models. But one thing they haven’t fully tackled yet is how to handle the increasingly large amounts of data coming out of academic research.
