It’s hard to foresee the ultimate consequences of what we’re doing. But the beginning is to provide a way to inject sophisticated computation and knowledge into everything—and to make it universally accessible to humans, programs and machines, in a way that lets all of them interact at a vastly richer and higher level than ever before.
I’ve been waiting for something like this to come along. If we’ve met, I’ve probably mentioned that a new era programming language should be around the corner, that’d allow for simple representation of many abstract things together. And this is going to push the era of understanding context and understanding different symbolic sources much much easier.
I’m not exactly sure how the Wolfram Language will work or it’s end goals are, but I feel this pushes towards an interesting world. I hope Stephen keeps parts of this accessible enough and not put everything behind a paywall, so that more and more folks can experience it and move it forward.
Really excited to learn what’s coming!
