Marking a Milestone: Four Years of Daily Study Groups

Four years ago, as the COVID pandemic wreaked havoc to class and event schedules, instructors and organizations were scrambling to create meaningful learning opportunities for students. In April 2020, Stephen Wolfram challenged the Wolfram U team to establish a unique online program for building computational skills with Daily Study Groups. The program was enthusiastically received by learners of all ages, and, after recently completing our 50th Daily Study Group, this is the perfect time to reflect on the program, celebrate a milestone and look ahead to future developments.

Food and Sun: Wolfram Language Recipe Graphs for the Solar Eclipse

At Wolfram Research, we are excited for the April 8 total solar eclipse and plan to observe this extraordinary event in several ways. Read about the science and math of this rare phenomenon in Stephen Wolfram’s new book, Predicting the Eclipse: A Multimillennium Tale of Computation, and then find eclipse specifics for your location with the Wolfram precision eclipse website. Now that you know why and where, prepare for your upcoming watch party with these Sun-related recipes using two new functions from the Wolfram Function Repository: RecipeGraph and NutrientComparisonBarChart.

RecipeGraph relies on a large language model (LLM) to help create a graph of the ingredients and instructions for a recipe. The recipe ingredients and instructions form the vertices of the graph. The edges (lines connecting the vertices) represent the flow of the preparation and cooking process. Each ingredient connects to the instruction in which it is used. NutrientComparisonBarChart creates a dual bar chart comparing the calories and macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates, fat and fiber) in a list of foods.

Enhance Wind Turbine Design with the New Wolfram System Modeler Rotating Machinery Library

Explore the contents of this article with a free Wolfram System Modeler trial. A wind turbine gearbox, susceptible to erratic wind loads, frequently fails well before its intended lifespan. Such failures, occurring globally, not only cause significant downtime but also lead to substantial economic losses. Can simulations help avoid this?

Your Invitation to Take a Quantum Leap in Education

Learning quantum theory requires dedication and a willingness to challenge classical assumptions. Quantum interference, particularly for massive particles, is a pivotal example in this journey. The Schrödinger equation, inspired by de Broglie’s hypothesis, revolutionized our understanding by revealing the wavelike nature of even massive particles. This phenomenon not only deepens our grasp of nature but also fuels innovations in quantum applications, from quantum sensing to quantum computing. Yet many students don't have the opportunity to run experiments that require sophisticated hardware. Not anymore!
