A short and sweet Computer Science/Wolfram Language Tutorial

While nothing beats the Wolfram language tutorial available at 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.

The Threefold nature of Intelligence

Trefoil knot. Source: I am constantly contemplating Intelligence, not purely for the purpose of exercising my mind, but also to discover its secrets so as to enable myself or anyone I inspire to create an artifact that embodies it as it is inevitable that humanity will eventually build synthetic intelligence to augment its current capacities.

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.
