In a giant leap forward in building accessibility to the world’s knowledge through making programs — and eventually things — smart, Stephen Wolfram is ready to release his blueprint for a sentient, all-knowing code. In his radical computational paradigm, code, images, results, and inputs will all be as usable and malleable as a symbolic expression.
Wolfram's vision is a whole new level of automation, and a completely divergent approach to building a programming language toward a massive holistic thing. It's a whole new focus on computation that knows more about the world than the programmer ever could. Wolfram's ultimate goal? "A human defines what the goal should be, and a computer does its best to figure out what that means, and does its best to do it,” he says. Read entire article here>
