From Novice to AI with Wolfram Language


I taught a full course on Wolfram Language programming, Computational Thinking and Artificial Intelligence in just 3 days!! That is 3 days to go from total Wolfram language programming novice to eventually training models using the robust automated artificial intelligence system included in Mathematica.


It was an awesome experience and despite the fact that it was conducted in an academic environment, it turned out to be so much fun. My students never expected programming could be this simple yet super-sophisticated.

One student described her project for me and after she was done talking, I simply asked if she had viewed the Image Processing library in the Wolfram Documentation. A few clicks later, she saw all the functions that were prebuilt and was exhilarated. She confessed I had just saved her from a full year of fruitless labour as she was trying to build her own library due to lack of high-quality libraries for her highly domain-specific project. This is just one of the countless revelations my students had during their 3-day journey. I am including the exact Wolfram Notebook we used for your own study and play. I hope you enjoy and have a lot of fun with it in the Wolfram Cloud.

Next Steps Towards Strong Artificial Intelligence

What is Intelligence? Pathways to Synthetic Intelligence If you follow current AI Research then it will be apparent to you that AI research, the deep learning type has stalled! This does not mean that new areas of application for existing techniques are not appearing but that the fundamentals have been solved and things have become pretty standardized.

What you actually need to become an expert programmer

 When it comes to programming, there is no reasonable shortcut to practice. What kind of practice am I talking about? Does it mean we should spend all day on  Leetcode  or  Hackerrank ? No, you don't have to but it is very important that you spend sufficient time on these platforms to improve the quality of your programming expressibility.
