Seminar: Wolfram Technologies in Education and Research

by Brenda Marshall
Tuesday, March 28
3-4 p.m., including Q&A
Caylor 251

This talk illustrates capabilities in Mathematica 11 and other Wolfram technologies that are directly applicable for use in teaching and research on campus. Topics of these technical talks include:

  • Enter calculations in everyday English, or using the flexible Wolfram Language
  • Visualize data, functions, surfaces, and more in 2D or 3D
  • Store and share documents locally or in the Wolfram Cloud
  • Use the Predictive Interface to get suggestions for the next useful calculation or function options
  • Access trillions of bits of on-demand data
  • Use semantic import to enrich your data using Wolfram curated data
  • Easily turn static examples into mouse-driven, dynamic applications
  • Access over 10,000 free course-ready applications
  • Utilize the Wolfram Language’s wide scope of built-in functions, or create your own
  • Get deep support for specialized areas including machine learning, time series, image processing, parallelization, and control systems, with no add-ons required

If you haven’t seen Mathematica lately, you will be surprised to see how suitable Mathematica is for projects and course examples in any STEM, business and economics, or liberal arts field. Attendees with no prior experience report that this talk helps with getting started using Mathematica language and workflow. With improvements like the new free-form input and expanded areas like finance, statistics, engineering, software development, and image processing, even the most advanced users report learning quite a bit from Mathematica technical talks. All attendees will receive an electronic copy of the examples, which can be adapted to individual projects. I’ll also provide a free trial download.

Current users will benefit from seeing the many improvements and new features of Mathematica 11 (, but prior knowledge is not required.
