Wolfram Research yesterday for Windows, Mac, and Linux. The news largely flew under the radar, which is frankly a shame. The new tool combines Wolfram Alpha and Mathematica to give students (and teachers) a new way to build through whole computations. But it’s the natural language understanding (NLU) examples that really caught my eye.
Wolfram Research is best known for creating the modern technical computing system Mathematica and the computational knowledge engine Wolfram Alpha (stylized Wolfram|Alpha). While Wolfram Alpha is already popular with students, it’s a one-shot process: math question in, computational answers out. Wolfram Alpha Notebook Edition is supposed to keep you engaged by being more than just a powerful calculator. The only real barrier here is that .
