Creamy or Crunchy: Visualizing Food Protein Structures in Wolfram Language

How important is the relationship between protein structure and the food we eat?

  • Protein structure influences food texture. It can make a food smooth and creamy or crisp and crunchy.
  • Protein structure helps determine digestibility. Proteins with looser structures are more readily hydrolyzed into amino acids for easier digestion.
  • Protein structure is a factor in whether foods such as peanuts and shellfish cause an allergic reaction.
  • Protein structure can make our foods elegant and appetizing.

Prompts for Work & Play: Launching the Wolfram Prompt Repository

Prompts are how one channels an LLM to do something. LLMs in a sense always have lots of “latent capability” (e.g. from their training on billions of webpages). But prompts—in a way that’s still scientifically mysterious—are what let one “engineer” what part of that capability to bring out.

Expand Your Understanding of Statistics with Wolfram Language

Statistics is the mathematical discipline dealing with all stages of data analysis, from question design and data collection to analyzing and presenting results. It is an important field for analyzing and understanding data from scientific research and industry. Data-driven decisions are a critical part of modern business, allowing companies to use data and computational analyses to guide their choices and direction, rather than subjective measures like intuition.

Stack the Odds in Your Favor and Master Probability with Wolfram Language

"I believe that we do not know anything for certain, but everything probably."Christiaan Huygens

Have you ever wondered how health insurance premiums are calculated or why healthcare is so expensive? Or what led to the financial crisis of 2008? Or whether nuclear power is safe? The answers to these questions require an understanding of probability, which is the best tool that we have for coping with an uncertain world. In fact, an understanding of probability is required for professionals in a large number of fields, including data science, finance, engineering, biology, chemistry, medicine and actuarial science.
