A New Method of Bell Ringing Using Mathematica to Discover Wolf Wrap

English bell ringing (called change ringing) has many connections to mathematics, notably to group theory and Hamiltonian cycles. My wife, Joan Hutchinson, is an ardent bell ringer (having rung in both England and North America), and I knew the basics of this ancient craft. A recent puzzle book by Mark Davies [1] inspired me to bring Mathematica’s integer-linear programming (ILP) capabilities to bear, but I wanted to go beyond puzzles and develop a new ringing method that would be of interest to the bell-ringing community.

Microsoft, Wolfram and the Future of Computable Data

With the recent addition of Wolfram|Alpha knowledge to Microsoft Office 365, Wolfram has now delivered computational knowledge integration projects to four of the five biggest tech companies in the world. Products central to the business of these big companies, such as Apple's Siri and now Microsoft Excel, rely on Wolfram to deliver knowledge and computation, on demand and at scale.

Change Your Perspective on the History of Mathematics with These Eight Learning Journeys

Amid COVID’s first wave, I had the privilege to join forces with Eric Weisstein and his team at Wolfram Research to create the History of Mathematics Project, a virtual interactive gallery highlighting physical artifacts that are important to the history of mathematics, for the National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) in New York City. Most of my mandatory confinement at home was spent navigating through online collections from world-class museums, locating outstanding mathematical artifacts and creating interactive and computational explanations for them.

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.
