Journey from the Wolfram Data Science Boot Camp to Creative Data Analytics

When I attended the 2019 Wolfram Data Science Boot Camp as an instructor, I had the pleasure of meeting Professor Fei Du and Davis Mo, the youngest Boot Camp alum to date. I don’t think any of us expected our conversations from the camp to grow into our collaboration on the book Creative Data Analytics: Computational Recipes to Gain Insights into Business.

Nutrients by the Numbers: Food and Nutrition Statistics with Wolfram Language

Statistical analysis is an important tool in food science. It can uncover patterns and relationships in food and nutrition data, leading to advances in food manufacturing, nutrition counseling, food safety and new product development. Wolfram Language offers built-in functions for all standard statistical distributions. Here, we’ll use some of these functions to evaluate relationships between nutrients and visualize the data distributions with informative plots and histograms.

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.

Formation Flight with the Wolfram System Modeler Aircraft Library

Explore the contents of this article with a free Wolfram System Modeler trial. The Swedish Air Force has an annual tradition of greeting the people of Sweden at the end of the year by flying their fighter jets in a formation shaped like a Christmas tree. Besides welcoming everyone, this tradition plays a role as a valuable rehearsal for the fighter pilots in formation flying and is a way to show their presence. Thus, the large amounts of fuel burned by the fighter jets, which are most certainly not known for their fuel efficiency, may be excused in this tradition.

Develop a Growth Strategy for a SaaS Company with Wolfram System Modeler

Explore the contents of this article with a free Wolfram System Modeler trial. Have you ever watched Shark Tank or Dragons’ Den? Were you intrigued by the pitches of the founders? After the pitch, you might have heard the sharks or the dragons asking about the growth rate, profit or market size. What do those numbers say about a company? Are losses in the initial years always bad?

Bowl a Strike with Wolfram System Modeler

Explore the contents of this article with a free Wolfram System Modeler trial. Bowling is a simple game that consists of a ball, 10 pins and a lane. You take the ball, come to the starting line, aim between pins 1 and 3 and throw the ball. You instinctively assume that the ball and the lane are perfect and expect the ball to go straight where you aimed.
