In this video, Stephen Wolfram introduces the Wolfram Language, a “knowledge based” symbolic programming language that enables powerful functional programming, querying of large databases, flexible interactivity, and easy deployment.
The Wolfram Language provides seamless access to the curated and continuously updated Wolfram Knowledgebase used in Wolfram|Alpha—which includes a wide range of types of data for physics and chemistry. Free-form linguistics provide a convenient mechanism for accessing all available data; more common categories also have specific associated Wolfram Language functions.
The Wolfram Language looks to be incredibly versatile. Could this be the future of Big Data?
