Apply Now for the 15th Annual Wolfram Summer School
This year's Wolfram Summer School will be held at Bentley University in Waltham, Massachusetts, from June 18 to July 7, 2017. Maybe you're a researcher who wants to study the dynamics of galaxies with cellular automata. Perhaps you're an innovator who wants to create a way to read time from pictures of analog clocks or build a new startup with products that use RFID (radio-frequency identification) to track objects. You might be an educator who wants to build an algebra feedback system or write a textbook that teaches designers how to disinvent the need for air conditioning. These projects show the diversity and creativity of some of our recent Summer School students. Does this sound like you? If so, we want you to join us this summer!

The R&D Pipeline Continues: Launching Version 11.1
A Minor Release That's Not MinorI'm pleased to announce the release today of Version 11.1 of the Wolfram Language (and Mathematica). As of now, Version 11.1 is what's running in the Wolfram Cloud---and desktop versions are available for immediate download for Mac, Windows and Linux. What's new in Version 11.1? Well, actually a remarkable amount. Here's a summary:
Design & Visualization
In Mathematica 10, we introduced support for anatomical structures in EntityValue, which included, among many other things, a "Graphics3D" property that returns a 3D model of the anatomical structure in question. We also styled the models and aligned them with the concepts in the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS).
