Wolfram Language is a knowledge-based computer language that's been in development by Stephen Wolfram for about 30 years. "It's a language where a vast amount of knowledge about how to do computations and about the world is built right into the language," according to Mr. Wolfram who formally announced the language last year.
That's all fairly abstract, but the working result is magnificent and needs to be seen to be appreciated. In this stunning YouTube tour of Wolfram Language, Mr. Wolfram illustrates the power of his creation. It has to be seen to be believed. How people in the future will use this new kind of computer language for research and analysis can only be guessed at right now.
