Wolfram Language

Stephen Wolfram released a 13 minute firehose of a video about his new Wolfram Language. Actually, it has been decades in the making and used in many of Wolfram's key products. Every time you use Siri on your iOS device there is a good chance it is using Wolfram Language on the back end.

The video is a slick sales job to geeks like me. At one point he enters a two line program that crawls the web from a starting point and generates a graph showing what that corner of the web looks like.


In another example, in two quick commands his language sucks in his friends list from Facebook, clusters them into groups, and then plots the groups.

I can imagine this could be an incredible boon to analyzing your site's security – that is, once you have the right data and know the right Wolfram Language instructions/commands to use.
