Friday math movie: Stephen Wolfram on Computing a theory of everything

By Murray Bourne, 14 May 2011

I'm a big fan of Wolfram|Alpha, the "computational knowledge engine".

This week's movie is a TED talk by Stephen Wolfram, one of the developers of Mathematica, and Wolfram|Alpha. He outlines his aim to "democratize knowledge".

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
