Sté reconnue dans le monde des sciences et des technologies, particulièrement dans les mathématiques, elle est la création de Stephen Wolfram.
Wolfram est derrière la célèbre application "Siri" pour Apple.

Voici sa biographie en Anglais:
phare de Wolfram est Wolfram | Alpha, un moteur de recherche sémantique, développé par la société Wolfram Research, et qui utilise le logiciel conçu par Stephen Wolfram, Mathematica.
Fondamentalement, Wolfram | Alpha est une réponse moteur qui répond aux questions que vous pourriez avoir au sujet de certains événements, produits et d'autres choses, à travers une base de données structurée. Donc, contrairement aux moteurs de recherche comme Google ou Yahoo!, qui offrent un lien pour nous d'accéder à l'information, Wolfram | Alpha est également responsable du traitement et nous donne des réponses "digérées" sur les pages qui contiennent l'information.


Alpha to See Dramatic Functionality Enhancements. Posted by Most of our users are aware that we release a new version of Wolfram|Alpha every week.

Alpha to See Dramatic Functionality Enhancements

Each version includes countless changes—including regular data updates to hundreds of sources, improvements to our natural-language parser and other core frameworks, and completely new areas of coverage. This blog usually focuses on new datasets and functionality, and if you’ve been reading it recently, you know we’ve made some huge additions in just the last couple of months. We’ve introduced our own unique spin on NFL statistics. We’ve added the ability to visualize, compare, and purchase consumer products. But the biggest change to Wolfram|Alpha since its launch nearly three years ago will be our next release, and we wanted you to be aware that it’s coming.

Stay tuned! Stephen Wolfram: Official Website. Stephen Wolfram. Stephen Wolfram (born 29 August 1959) is a British scientist,[7] known for his work in theoretical physics, as the chief designer of the Mathematica software application and the Wolfram Alpha answer engine, as well as the CEO of Wolfram Research, and the author of A New Kind of Science.[2][8][9][10][11][12][13] Background[edit] Wolfram's parents were Jewish refugees who emigrated from Germany to England in the 1930s.[5][14] Wolfram's father Hugo was a textile manufacturer and novelist (Into a Neutral Country) and his mother Sybil was a professor of philosophy at the University of Oxford.[15] He has a younger brother, Conrad Wolfram.[16] Wolfram is married to a mathematician and has four children.[17] Education[edit] Wolfram was educated at Eton College, but left prematurely in 1976.

Lawyers for Wolfram Research Inc. threatened to sue me, my co-authors and our employer, because one of our citations referred to a certain mathematical proof, and they claimed the existence of this proof was a trade secret of Wolfram Research. I am sorry to say that our employer knuckled under, and so did we, and we replaced that version of the paper with another, without the offending citation. I think my judgments on Wolfram and his works are accurate, but they're not disinterested. Wolfram's first paper on CAs, published in 1983, was titled "The Statistical Mechanics of Cellular Automata".

In the mid-1980s, Wolfram had a position at the University of Illinois-Urbana's Beckman Institute for complex systems.

Wolfram Media, Inc. The Maths behind "NUMB3RS" LARRY (cont'd) At the request of the bride and groom, I will keep my remarks short and non-technical.

The Maths behind "NUMB3RS"

As you know, there are four fundamental forces in physics: electromagnetism, strong nuclear interaction, weak nuclear interaction, and gravity. The liquid-drop model in nuclear physics was originally proposed by George Gamow and developed by Hans Bethe and Carl von Weizsäcker in the 1930s. It treats the nucleus as an incompressible fluid of protons and neutrons bound together by the strong nuclear force. It treats the nucleus as an incompressible fluid of protons and neutrons bound together by the strong nuclear force. LARRY Social network models interpret the structure of human relationships: social, economic, political. The adjacency matrix of a graph shows how the vertices are connected; when the entry at row i, column j is 1 in the matrix, the vertices i and j are connected.
