Stephen Wolfram never disappoints…

No one will come away from this video amazed at how humble Stephen Wolfram is, but that’s not the point of the video. It’s an introduction to a forthcoming programming language from Stephen Wolfram, named appropriately enough Wolfram Language, that attempts to build on the past 30 years of his work creating Mathematica, his book A New Kind of Science (humbly referred to on his site as Wolfram Science), and Wolfram|Alpha. It takes the knowledge and algorithms built in to Wolfram|Alpha and makes them available in a symbolic programming language. The demo is fairly entertaining (considering its topic) and it should be very interesting to see what  is done with this language once it’s available to the general public.

For more information, see the Wolfram Language section of the Wolfram Research web site.
