A Preview of CDF on iPad
For 22 years, Wolfram Research has been developing technology to allow subject matter experts to bring their ideas and documents to life with interactivity. This week, as part of his keynote at the O’Reilly Tools of Change for Publishing Conference, Theodore Gray, Co-founder of Wolfram Research and Founder of Touch Press, gave the first demonstration of how we’re bringing the full power of our publishing systems to mobile devices.
Here’s a video excerpt of his announcement of the Computable Document Format (CDF) for iPad:
The announcement was part of Gray’s keynote address, “Meaningful Interactivity in a Mobile World,” in which he shared his experiences as a technology-minded author and discussed how the use of tools like Mathematica, Wolfram|Alpha, and CDF allow non-programmers to create interactive content with unprecedented ease. Gray’s entire presentation is available to watch online as well.
