Wolfram Research is a private company that creates computational technology. Wolfram's flagship product is the technical computing program Wolfram Mathematica, first released on June 23, 1988. Wolfram Research founder Stephen Wolfram is the CEO.

The company launched Wolfram Alpha, an answer engine on May 16, 2009. It brings a new approach to knowledge generation and acquisition that involves large amounts of curated computable data in addition to semantic indexing of text.[1]

Wolfram Research acquired MathCore Engineering AB on March 30, 2011.[2][3]

On July 21, 2011 Wolfram Research launched the Computable Document Format (CDF). CDF is an electronic document format[4] designed to allow easy authoring[5] of dynamically generated interactive content.

In June 2014, Wolfram Research officially introduced the Wolfram Language as a new general multi-paradigm programming language.[6] It is the primary programming language used in Mathematica.[7]

Other products include Wolfram SystemModeler, Wolfram Workbench,[8] gridMathematica, Wolfram Finance Platform,[9] webMathematica, the Wolfram Development Platform,[10] and the Wolfram Programming Lab.[11]

Wolfram Research served as the mathematical consultant for the CBS television series Numb3rs, a show about the mathematical aspects of crime-solving.[12]

Products and resources


Mathematica is a modern technical computing system spanning all areas of technical computing — including neural networks, machine learning, image processing, geometry, data science, visualizations, and others. The system is used in many technical, scientific, engineering, mathematical, and computing fields. In addition to the computational abilities of the system, Mathematica includes a unique and powerful notebook interface. Computational notebooks can be structured using a hierarchy of cells, which allow for outlining and sectioning of a document and support automatic numbering index creation. Documents can be presented in a slideshow environment for presentations and their contents are represented as Mathematica expressions that can be created, modified or analyzed by Mathematica programs or converted to other formats.


Wolfram Alpha is a free online service that answers factual queries directly by computing the answer from externally sourced curated data, rather than providing a list of documents or web pages that might contain the answer as a search engine might. Users submit queries and computation requests via a text field and Wolfram Alpha then computes answers and relevant visualizations.

On February 8, 2012, Wolfram Alpha Pro was released, offering users additional features(e.g., the ability to upload many common file types and data — including raw tabular data, images, audio, XML, and dozens of specialized scientific, medical, and mathematical formats — for automatic analysis) for a monthly subscription fee.

Wolfram SystemModeler

Wolfram SystemModeler is a platform for engineering as well as life-science modeling and simulation based on the Modelica language. It provides an interactive graphical modeling and simulation environment and a customizable set of component libraries. The primary interface, ModelCenter, is an interactive graphical environment including a customizable set of component libraries. The software also provides a tight integration with Mathematica. Users can develop, simulate, document, and analyze their models within Mathematica notebooks.

Wolfram Challenges

Wolfram Challenges is a free online collection of computational thinking problems designed to provide users with a fun and interactive method of learning. Using the Wolfram Language, the challenges range in levels of difficulty to provide opportunity for beginners through the most seasoned individual, and can range from pure algorithms, real-world questions requiring the use of the Wolfram Knowledgebase, or mathematics. Each challenge maintains a leaderboard tracking various achievements such as shortest code length, fastest time to successfully answer, and the names of everyone who has submitted the correct answer. The challenges are available in Mathematica notebook format and can either be downloaded to your desktop or opened directly in your web browser using the Wolfram Cloud. Users are also given the opportunity to submit their own new challenges for inclusion in the program.

Neural Network Repository

On June 14, 2018, Wolfram Research officially launched the Wolfram Neural Net Repository.[13] The repository is a public resource that hosts a large collection of both trained and untrained neural network models spanning many categories including classification, feature extraction, image processing, regression, semantic segmentation, speech recognition, object detection, and language modeling.

Publishing and Innovation

Wolfram Research publishes several free websites including the MathWorld and ScienceWorld encyclopedias. ScienceWorld, which launched in 2002, is divided into sites on chemistry, physics, astronomy and scientific biography.[14] In 2005, the physics site was deemed a "valuable resource" by American Scientist magazine.[15] However, by 2009, the astronomy site was said to suffer from outdated information, incomplete articles and link rot.[16]

The Wolfram Demonstrations Project is a collaborative site hosting interactive technical demonstrations powered by a free Mathematica Player runtime.

Wolfram Research publishes The Mathematica Journal.[17] Wolfram has also published several books via Wolfram Media, Wolfram's publishing arm.[18][19]

Wolfram Research has organized three Wolfram Science conferences in Boston, MA, Washington, D.C. and Burlington, VT in the United States in the years 2003, 2006 and 2007 respectively. Two other independent NKS Midwest conferences have taken place at the Indiana University, Bloomington in 2005 and 2008. Other independent workshops related to NKS research have also been organized overseas, such as JOUAL (Just One Universal Algorithm) at the CNR in Pisa, Italy in 2009.

Wolfram Research hosts the yearly Wolfram Technology Conference in Champaign, IL.[20] During this three-day conference, developers discuss the latest Wolfram technologies for mobile devices, cloud computing, interactive deployment, and more.

Wolfram Research also hosts the annual Wolfram Data Summit, a high-level gathering of innovators in data science.[21]

They are experimenting with electronic textbook creation.[22]

Year Awarded Innovator Organization Recognized for Areas of Concentration
2018 Nassim Nicholas Taleb New York University Tandon School of Engineering Nassim Nicholas Taleb spent 21 years as a risk taker (quantitative trader) before becoming a researcher in philosophical, mathematical and (mostly) practical problems with probability. Taleb is the author of a multivolume essay, the Incerto (The Black Swan, Fooled by Randomness, Antifragile, and Skin in the Game) covering broad facets of uncertainty. It has been translated into 36 languages. In addition to his trader life, Taleb has also written, as a backup of the Incerto, more than 50 scholarly papers in statistical physics, statistics, philosophy, ethics, economics, international affairs, and quantitative finance, all around the notion of risk and probability. Taleb is currently Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering at NYU's Tandon School of Engineering where his current focus is on the properties of systems that can handle disorder.
2018 Neil Singer AC Kinetics, Inc. Neil Singer formed Convolve Inc. in 1989. It was a company that spun off from research he had been doing at MIT, aimed at reducing vibrations in electric machines. In 2013 he went on to form AC Kinetics, a company which specializes in reducing electrical motor energy consumption and enhancing their performance and has been using SystemModeler and Mathematica to achieve this. Using Mathematica and SystemModeler, AC Kinetics are able to verify their real digital motor controllers in a simulated environment. In some applications, they have used this workflow to achieve as high energy savings as half of the total energy. They report that with their workflow using SystemModeler and Mathematica of simulated verification and testing they have achieved significant time savings over conventional approaches to controller design.
2018 Aaron Santos EMC Insurance Aaron Santos started using the Wolfram Language in 1999 as a sophomore in MIT's J-term mechanics course. Even in that early version, Aaron could see the language was fundamentally different than others. If he wanted to do anything substantial in C or Java, it was going to take hours of coding or searching through libraries/packages that may or may not be relevant. Wolfram Language was also integral to his graduate work as a postdoc. The insurance industry is undergoing a revolution in technology because of big data and IoT devices. Aaron uses the Wolfram Language partly because it's highly automated, so it's great for rapid prototyping and modeling, but also because the Wolfram Language allows their company to easily step outside the traditional data science box and explore more innovative solutions to problems. Aaron is currently part of a 3-man startup company that has created a nanotechnology device capable of determining genetic makeup of a product (i.e. corn) within 10 minutes, whereas the industry standard is presently about 50-60 minutes per sample. They are patent-pending and have produced both a methodology as well as a device for executing said methodology.
2018 Jorge Ramirez National University of Colombia Jorge Ramirez is an Applied Mathematician with special interest in the natural sciences. He is currently the lead researcher working on several research and educational projects where Mathematica is a key tool. Those projects include Pattern formation in ant colonies by tropotaxis, Nonlinear transport in breaking oceanic waves, invariant distribution of runoff in watersheds under stationary rainfall, and Glucose level predictions for Type 1 diabetics patients. Further, Jorge is the coordinator of the differential calculus class on his campus, which involves teaching and testing 1700 students divided in 24 sections.
2018 Nicholas Mecholsky Catholic University of America & Vitreous State Laboratory Nicholas Mecholsky uses Mathematica for Database Processing and Data Mining. In Hanford, Washington--there is 53 million gallons of High Level waste Stored in 177 tanks, and 200 miles square miles of contaminated groundwater. The goal is to vitrify nuclear waste to change into glass. The liquid form is a huge problem since the sludge separates and the concrete and steel barriers degrade much faster than the radioactive material lasts. Nicholas uses Mathematica to arrange all the tanks of different additives and mix them to find the optimization of additives to make the glass. This is the largest nuclear waste Vitrification Pilot program in the world. As a result, they have created new compositions, tested the different attributes, and built predictive models. Currently they make new glasses and test them, then update model, and repeat. Part of the success they have had is predicting a particular type of crystal structure form called "Nephylene", and the models to identify it. The crystal creates problems in the Glass so that the Nephylene does not exist. Knowing whether or not it is happening is very important, and Mathematica is used to model this. Through the use of Mathematica, they will be starting the Vitrifying process in Hanford, Washington in 2024.
2018 David Creech McDermott International David Creech is a Licensed Professional Engineer with 20 years experience leading research and development, engineering services groups, business development, project management, and execution of a wide range of highly-technical engineering projects. One of the challenges his company faced was a catalog of hundreds of in-house FOTRAN and Excel programs for performing engineering calculations on the company's specialized products. The programs needed to be updated to comply with changes in industry standards and offer better usability. At the same time, David wanted to make these calculations more accessible to the engineers and to allow them to customize and recombine them to make innovation easy. He started a large initiative to replace their most critical calculations with Mathematica packages. Since 2012, they've had up to a dozen engineers and developers working on specifications, development, validation and documentation. They know have a very large system of packages, with hundreds of thousands of lines of MMA code and thousands of pages of documentation. Of particular importance to David, they are now reaching a critical point in both code base and user experience where their users are moving their own calculations to Mathematica and combining them with their packages to make new tools for engineering their products more efficiently.
2018 Bruce Colletti United States Air Force (Retired) Bruce Colletti has participated in various governmental classified consulting projects throughout his career. He has also used Mathematica to prepare classroom instruction (and "after class" extracurricular instruction for students who wanted to learn about other areas of mathematics). In 2009, Northern Virginia Community College awarded him with the Netherton Award for Excellence and in 2010, and named him Adjunct Faculty of the Year (an award bestowed upon him by the students). Bruce has stated that Mathematica made both honors possible.
2018 Abby Brown Torrey Pines High School Abby Brown has done a lot of work to help other teachers understand her course content to give them a jump-start to teaching with Mathematica. She has demonstrated her materials first-hand during conferences and in her community and is a great advocate for Wolfram.
