A New Way to Ask Wolfram|Alpha Questions with Math Input

We are excited to talk about a feature we released this summer that we call Math Input. We’ve had many requests to add this feature to the site, and after a lot of hard work from multiple teams, we’re ready to share it with you. Head over to Wolfram|Alpha to see it for yourself:

Using Neural Networks to Boost Student Learning in Chemistry

I attended the Wolfram Neural Networks Boot Camp 2020, and that inspired me to incorporate elements of data science and machine learning in my course. The helper functions for machine learning make it quite easy to experiment and introduce such applications to students. We chose to perform image recognition and classification problems that are routinely used to initiate the topics of both neural networks and machine learning.

Get Ready for College or University with the Early Access for Students Program

Are you planning to start university or college next year? If you’re anything like me, making that next step in your education can be a daunting prospect. Some of you might be worried about being able to keep up with your new classmates, others about maintaining a position at the top of the class—and plenty of you probably fall somewhere in the middle.

Wolfram Education Site Licenses Now Include Single Sign-On

In late 2020, Wolfram first made single sign-on (SSO) available to campuses with unlimited site licenses, providing a convenient way for all faculty, staff and students to use their campus credentials to log in to Mathematica Online and other browser-based Wolfram products. Even during the middle of an academic year, dozens of campuses successfully tested and rolled out this first phase of SSO. Several campuses implemented SSO right away to reduce admin time as students graduated and were no longer under the umbrella of the school’s site-licensed products.

Class Notes, Quizzes and Weather Alerts with Mathematica and the Wolfram Language

Using Wolfram technologies has always been a part of my working process—from asking Wolfram|Alpha questions in college to using the Wolfram Cloud to set up reminders and forms in my everyday work. Nowadays, I think about the ways that our users can employ our technologies. I like to build on things that I perhaps should have used to improve my efficiency during my time as a student or faculty member, or even for tasks outside of work in my day-to-day life.

Wolfram Neural Networks Boot Camp Recap: Dog vs. Butterfly Optical Illusion Showdown

Neural networks are increasingly a part of society and are used in many aspects of life, especially e-commerce and social media. I recently had the opportunity to attend the Wolfram Neural Networks Boot Camp with developers and researchers who design and utilize Wolfram Language neural net resources. During the boot camp, participants received a crash course on using neural nets in the Wolfram Language.

Graduate to the Wolfram Early Professionals Program

Each year, 73 billion students use Mathematica and the Wolfram Language at their universities. Okay, that might be an exaggeration, but as the person leading the Wolfram sales team, I see my group fielding questions from tons of students on their options for using Mathematica after they graduate. So perhaps it sometimes just feels like 73 billion.

And that’s a good thing—we’re always excited to help these brilliant young minds use Mathematica and the Wolfram Language to do basic repetitive tasks, from solving integrals or graphing trig functions in their undergraduate work to visualizing complex sets of data or building an AI system for their graduate-level research.
