WolframAlpha, ChatGPT, and the Future of AI

We all know that ChatGPT has taken the world by storm. True, it is a major advance of Artificial Intelligence in the area of Natural Language Processing. Many may not know that WolframAlpha, launched in 2009, allowed natural language queries. As a long time user of Wolfram Mathematica, I was pleasantly surprised when the product […]

Using Julia from Mathematica

In an earlier article, I had shown how it is possible to interact with Mathematica from Julia. In today’s article, I will share the details of how to interact with Julia from within Mathematica. Why would somebody want to execute Julia code inside Mathematica? Although Mathematica is a great symbolic computing environment offering thousands of […]

Mathematica: Using TextCases to Extract Information from Natural Language Text 

Extracting meaningful information from unstructured, human readable text is a hot topic of research today and has important applications in many domains. I have written a few blogs related to this topic, for example, see this and this. In today’s article, I would like to show how Mathematica can be a great help when working with […]

Pattern Matching: Comparing Elixir and Mathematica

One of the things I like about Elixir is its support for patterns at the core language level, not through library functions as in most other languages. This contributes to writing cleaner code, in my opinion.   Another environment that I am familiar with, namely Mathematica, boasts of (arguably) the most powerful symbolic programming language called […]

Using NodeJS in Mathematica 12

In an earlier article, I had described Python integration in Mathematica 12. In addition to Python, NodeJS is also supported as a default “external” language. In today’s article, I will focus on NodeJS integration. By the way, NodeJS support was introduced in Mathematica 11.2. Before using NodeJS with Mathematica 12, the system must be configured […]

Currying in Mathematica

One of the more recent additions to the core Wolfram Language is the “Curry” function. It was introduced in Mathematica ver 11.3 and is still (as of ver 12.0) considered Experimental. In this post, I would like to go over this function briefly. Non-curried functions in Mathematica have to be invoked with the arguments (both […]

Python Integration in Mathematica 12

Mathematica has had Python support since ver 11.2 through ExternalEvaluate[]. In ver 11.3 it was possible to input Python expression in a cell by beginning with “>” character. The good news is that Mathematica 12 has significantly enhanced this integration. Python Cells Let us start with the simplest way to use Python code in Mathematica. […]

TextContents[ ] Function in Mathematica 12

Mathematica 12 was released a few days ago.  It has been over a year since version 11.3 came out in March 2018. The long wait appears justified since the new release boasts of numerous improvements and new features across several areas. You may want to read this blog post by Stephen Wolfram. In the area of […]

Question Answering in Mathematica

About 10 days ago, I received an update for Mathematica. The latest version is 11.3.0. As usual, I looked through the list of new features in this release. There are several new features, but one of them attracted my attention immediately: There is a new function FindTextualAnswer that, given a piece of text and a question, can […]

Analysing Screenplay in Mathematica – II

In the previous post I showed how we can use Mathematica to analyse screenplays, and gave some interesting statistics about the various characters and scenes from the movie The Prestige. In today’s post, I want to continue that discussion by sharing some more statistics, and then look at another movie, The Bourne Ultimatum. We concluded […]
