Had great time learning about fascinating & diverse work of 2021 Wolfram Innovator Award winners: particle accelerators, space tugs, digital forensics, neuroeconomics, environmental chemistry, underwater structures, mathematics, education & more youtu.be/ZV9XDvR-p2s
How does the old idea of numbers work with the new idea of multicomputation? Remarkably basic math gives surprisingly complex behavior ... that relates to the foundations of physics and much more... wolframphysics.org/bulletins/2021…
The study of complexity that I worked so hard to pioneer in the early 1980s has now spawned perhaps a thousand institutes etc. But with what I know now, I think there are new foundations to build on... writings.stephenwolfram.com/2021/09/charti…
Just about to do the 500th episode of Live CEOing: Behind the Scenes in Real-Life Software Design---working on the 6th openly designed version of #WolfLang. Thanks to our participants for all your great real-time suggestions! #OpenScience twitch.tv/stephen_wolfram
Remember the new function Splice in Version 12.1? Someone just pointed out something I wrote for the SMP "Function Repository" in July 1981... There's nothing new under the sun---except the stuff that is...
RIP Tony Hewish (1924-2021) ... who long ago was kind enough to give the 11-year-old me a tour (and explanation with drawings) of the Cambridge "pulsar-discovering" radio telescope [the "control room" was just a hut, though with a memorable sidereal time clock]
A major spinoff from our @wolframphysics... with potential to revolutionize quite a few fields. Introducing multicomputation as a 4th general paradigm for theoretical science. Very important, even if not easy to understand... writings.stephenwolfram.com/2021/09/even-b…
Thanks to James Choi for pointing out an elementary solution to my favorite simplest "we can't get there yet" math problem: what are the first decimal digits of 2^2^2^2^2^2? (Now what about 2^2^2^2^2^2^2 and beyond?) community.wolfram.com/groups/-/m/t/2…
Know someone who wants to learn how the innovation/CEOing thing works?  I'm looking for an operations assistant - organizing/scheduling/interacting with my "network", etc... Needs someone very bright, intellectually curious and eager to learn.  wolfram.com/company/career…
The first ever #Wolfram Blockchain Labs (WBL) NFT auction featuring 10 of @stephen_wolfram's liveminted cellular automata NFT's is officially LIVE!. Go to web.wolframnftauctions.com to join the fun! @Cardano @IOHKMedia @COTInetwork

Had an interesting long discussion with my friend Terry Sejnowski about computational neuroscience and whether we'll be able to get symbolic descriptions of the brain (and how the formalism of our @wolframphysics might help)... youtu.be/EEeqM0E8ZYw?t=…
As part of my new livestreamed discussion series, I'll be doing a conversation with quantum-gravity-researcher Jan Ambjørn... and not just to collect on our Feb. 2, 1981 physics bet [but I still like ice cream & OJ] youtu.be/8Ls1wyJEQn0
Capturing some shelves of Mathematica-related books I have from 20+ years ago ... before launching into a big book reshelving project... (along with the scene a few hours later...)
Liveminted for NFT posterity some cellular automata plucked from the computational universe. Even after all these years it still amazes me what simple rules can produce... youtu.be/pMfrRFNCKhE?t=…
Mixing future and past, science and technology ... looking forward to my first public liveminting adventure in just under an hour... Expecting to commit some microdiscoveries from the computational universe to NFT posterity... liveminting.com
Computational X from the next generation: final presentations from the Wolfram High School Summer Camp 2021 (and, yes, it's nice to see so much that I can't imagine could be done without #WolfLang) wolfram-camp.tumblr.com
Showcasing the projects from the Wolfram Summer School 2021... Always impressive to see what can be done with #WolfLang ( + #ANewKindOfScience + @wolframphysics ) in just a few weeks.... wolfram-school.tumblr.com
Wolfram Summer School 2021 is finished (with a "graduation NFT" minted)! 73 students (+31 visitors), 28 mentors + 12 TAs; 47 primary lectures + 10 guest lectures + 11 events with me; 6 continents / 15 timezones...
Just finished a very full day of Wolfram Summer School final presentations ... and, since these are modern times, we liveminted an NFT to commemorate each presentation... wolframblockchainlabs.com
Our High School Summer Camp 2021 is launched! And, yes, it's amazing what becomes within "high-school reach" with our modern computational language tools... education.wolfram.com/summer-camp/
In addition to 29 Physics Track projects, there are also all sorts of other terrific projects underway at our Wolfram Summer School. I'm looking forward to seeing how they all come out.... education.wolfram.com/summer-school
That's nice... [Even though this is my most niche book yet...] amazon.com/dp/1579550436/…
A terrific collection of projects are now launched at the Physics Track of our Wolfram Summer School. Looking forward to seeing the results in 3 weeks! education.wolfram.com/summer-school/…
I think it's time for someone to do a little debugging... I wonder what aspect of my 14-year rather limited use of @Facebook made me seem like not me... Or, maybe, flatteringly enough, a new me... :)
Happy 33rd birthday, Mathematica ... so much built, so much opportunity to come
Join @stephen_wolfram today at 3 PM EDT for a live and unscripted History of Science Q&A session for all ages! Tune in via YouTube or Twitch! wolfr.am/YouTube wolfr.am/Twitch

Combinator trivia: No, not @ycombinator, the original Y combinator, s[s][k][s[k[s[s][s[s[s][k]]]]][k]], which becomes a "unicorn" (after some down rounds) in 494 steps, and after 1284 steps reaches more-dollars-than-in-the-world size: 508,107,499,710,983.
About to publish: "Combinators: A Centennial View "... the result of my burst of scientific & historical research on a subject I've very long been curious about ... and that's turning out to have some quite unexpected implications amazon.com/dp/1579550436
In the continuing story of PCE and the frontier of computation universality ... on the centenary of combinators (12/7/20) I suggested S alone might support universality. Now we're offering a $20k prize to find out if it's true... writings.stephenwolfram.com/2021/06/1920-2…
Tipped off by a staff member who saw one in the wild while snorkeling ... I realized I had this shell in my collection. Talk about "priority": these molluscs had millions of years on my 1980s work on 1D cellular automata! wolframscience.com/nks/p42--why-t…
Today would have been my mother's 90th birthday. She spent 35 years as philosophy faculty at Oxford (she also did social anthropology). Given my recent interests, maybe it's finally time to check out some of her philosophy papers...
Lots of interesting discussions and ideas at our conference today (with NKN) on "Distributed Consensus with Cellular Automata & Other Systems" youtu.be/cS4u-VpmC98

Preparing examples for Version 12.3 .... Here's one that didn't quite come out as intended, but is rather jolly ... like the animals are having a party....
Launching Wolfram Application Server today to further enterprise-level deployment of #WolfLang... on #Docker #Kubernetes #AWS #Azure wolfram.com/application-se…
If one's going to address fundamental questions ... one might as well go "all the way" :) Why does the universe exist? Why is there something rather than nothing? Amazingly, it seems @wolframphysics has something to say... writings.stephenwolfram.com/2021/04/why-do…
Retweeted by Stephen Wolfram
The @wolframphysics Project is one year old today---and things are going spectacularly! Not only do we seem to firmly be on the right track for fundamental physics, but our formalism also has immediate other applications... writings.stephenwolfram.com/2021/04/the-wo…
This Wednesday it'll be a year since we launched the Wolfram Physics Project, and I'll be doing a livestream+Q&A at 2 pm ET about what we've learned so far... (The project has been going *great*, btw) twitch.tv/stephen_wolfram youtube.com/user/WolframRe…
After a strange and circuitous chase through Soviet and other history we may know a little more about the mystery of what happened to Moses Schönfinkel, inventor of combinators... writings.stephenwolfram.com/2021/03/a-litt…
Frustrated tonight to find knowledge out of reach. I have some new ideas about economics and want to look at books about it. But 20 yrs ago, I put them on a top shelf, and now ladder access is blocked by furniture :(
I never expected to have anything useful to say about "consciousness". But thanks to #WolframPhysics maybe now I do (and in addition to philosophical progress, there may be scientific & practical implications) writings.stephenwolfram.com/2021/03/what-i…
Now that I finally feel I'm beginning to understand multiway Turing machines and quantum mechanics ... I just discovered something in my archives: 39 years ago (in 1982) I was asked to review a foundational paper on quantum Turing machines. Here's my report:
