Wolfram Blog: 15 Ways Wolfram|Alpha Can Help with Your Classes

Wolfram Blog: 15 Ways Wolfram|Alpha Can Help with Your Classes. “Thinking back on those late-night study sessions, I would have saved a lot of time if I had properly used Wolfram|Alpha as a study tool. Because I was a biology major, many of the areas in which I most frequently sought information were related to scientific fields such as chemistry, but Wolfram|Alpha can be a valuable resource in so many more areas. Here are 15 applications of Wolfram|Alpha in topics beyond mathematics. I hope you will find these to be useful both inside and outside the classroom!”

Lifehacker: Use Wolfram Alpha to Conceptualize Giant Numbers

Lifehacker: Use Wolfram Alpha to Conceptualize Giant Numbers. “Our monkey brains didn’t evolve to understand big numbers without some help. So when you run into an abstract figure, it’s good to have some real-world thing to compare it to. That’s why I memorize a few stats about the U.S. population; that’s why we made a video comparing Jeff Bezos’s money to Beyoncé’s. When you need to visualize a certain number, large or small, search it on Wolfram Alpha, and you’ll get a comparison to some real-world objects.”

ProBeat: Wolfram’s natural language understanding looks incredibly useful (VentureBeat)

VentureBeat: ProBeat: Wolfram’s natural language understanding looks incredibly useful. “Wolfram Research yesterday launched Wolfram Alpha Notebook Edition 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.”
