Wolfram Computing Language will be Embedded on the Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

The Wolfram Language, a knowledge-based computing language, will soon be released and embedded onto the Raspberry Pi, from venturebeat.

Three months ago, Stephen Wolfram gave VentureBeat a sneak peak in into the future of the Wolfram Language, a totally symbolic, heavily natural, intensely knowledge-based, and extremely large computer programming language. At the time, he struggled to explain exactly what Wolfram Language is.

That’s not shocking, given the language has been multiple decades in the making.

“You know, I’ve been working towards what is now the Wolfram Language for about 30 years,” Wolfram says in the video. “But it’s only in recent times that we’ve had what we need to create the whole Wolfram Language.”

Wolfram Language is not yet released, but will be embedded on upcoming Raspberry Pi micro-computers. It’s already widely used within Wolfram’s Mathematica computing environment for scientists, and it is also deployed to Wolfram Alpha’s cloud services as well.

More than any other computing language, knowledge about the world is built into the Wolfram Language, which is exactly what powers the WolframAlpha search engine. In addition, functions for seemingly everything — over 5,000 of them — are built right into the language, which allows you to create user interfaces, graphics objects, graphs, and more, programmatically.

Bringing those two aspects together allows you to instantly, in just a few words of code, grab data about, let’s say, the planets, or the countries of South America, and then express data about them in tabular or graphical form…

998Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
