Tag: Wolfram Alpha
The eighth version of Mathematica was released last month, the latest in Wolfram Research’s 22-year-old computational software platform. Although the tool is a relative newcomer to the high performance computing world, a raft of new capabilities have been added over the last several years that are aimed directly at the performance crowd. Mathematica 8 builds on those capabilities and adds some new ones that make it a serious contender for HPC applications.
The company has provided a public API for using its service, but users will have to pay fees.
Wolfram Alpha, the Web-based computational engine introduced in May, is not a traditional supercomputing application, but relies on supercomputers to satisfy its unique requirements.
Wolfram Alpha is not Google.
