Stephen Wolfram just announced that Wolfram Language and Mathemetica are being ported to RPi. This will be included in standard distributions. This might be the seed that germinates lot of new ideas and applications.
In effect, this is a technology preview: it’s an early, unfinished, glimpse of the Wolfram Language. Quite soon the Wolfram Language is going to start showing up in lots of places, notably on the web and in the cloud. But I’m excited that the timing has worked out so that we’re able to give the Raspberry Pi community—with its emphasis on education and invention—the very first chance to put the Wolfram Language into action.
