A short and sweet Computer Science/Wolfram Language Tutorial

While nothing beats the Wolfram language tutorial available at www.wolframcloud.com I decided to take a slightly different approach to share some knowledge about the language. There was this classic computer science lecture that took place at MIT in 1986 taught by Gerald Jay Sussman, Hal Abelson, Julie Sussman.


The original lecture can be found online on YouTube and the book is live online at MIT press. These are invaluable resources that you must go through if you want to get the full depth of the course. I include a short Wolfram Notebook with pieces of code I find very informative to the new programmer who wants to learn SICP (Structure and Interpretation of Computer programs).

The beauty of Wolfram Notebooks is that you can edit and play with the code in any way you wish. Don't be afraid of breaking it and fixing it. I do not include every program from the book just a few to teach some very core fundamental concepts of computer science and mostly how you can survive programming without traditional iterative structures like the For loop. Nothing beats the actual book so maybe after you go through this Wolfram notebook you may want to continue your journey with the resources I linked to above.

  1. If the ruling will get overturned, Florida will have authorized sports betting once more. If not, the state should begin over and find another approach to bring authorized 온라인 카지노 sports betting to the Sunshine State. Online sportsbooks normally provide the identical number of betting markets across desktop and mobile. Some of the most popular sports for U.S. bettors embrace basketball , soccer , baseball , hockey , Soccer , NASCAR, MMA, boxing, golf, and tennis.

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.

Virtual Reality is the next platform

VR Headset. Source: theverge.com It's been a while now since we started trying to develop Virtual Reality systems but so far we have not witnessed the explosion of use that inspired the development of such systems. Although there are always going to be some diehard fans of Virtual Reality who will stick to improving the medium and trying out stuff with the hopes of building a killer app, for the rest of us Virtual Reality still seems like a medium that promises to arrive soon but never really hits the spot.

What is Intelligence: Software writing Software

Sometimes I wonder why programmers are hell-bent on writing programs that can communicate in natural language and not even putting adequate effort into writing programs that write other programs. Maybe is because of the natural tendency to protect one's source of livelihood by not attempting to automate it away or maybe because writing programs is hard enough such that contemplating of writing some program that writes programs might be even harder.
