A New Collaboration From Cardano!
Wolfram Alpha, a major computing information engine that provides technology for major services such as Apple’s Siri Assistant, integrates data from the Cardano blockchain.
Wolfram Blockchain Labs (WBL), a subsidiary of Wolfram Research, has partnered with IOHK, the technology company founded by Charles Hoskinson, according to an announcement Thursday.
As part of the partnership, WBL will integrate Cardano’s blockchain data into Wolfram Alpha, allowing developers to integrate external data into Cardano’s smart contracts. The new partnership will specifically address work on “avant-garde oracles,” which companies believe is a necessary component for creating advanced smart contracts.
According to the announcement, WBL and IOHK will offer the function in 2021; they plan to release the integration later in the year.
Wolfram’s computing technology and knowledge base were previously integrated with major blockchain platforms, including the Bitcoin blockchain and Ethereum network. Other integrated platforms include the Ark blockchain framework and Bloxberg, a major blockchain initiative led by the Max Planck Society.
In addition, IOHK will work closely with WBL to develop smart contract-based applications as part of a broader mission to enable blockchain-based trading and business model transformation. Following the partnership, WBL plans to incorporate Cardano-specific content into its course material, allowing developers to learn how to best use Wolfram tools and Oracle for Cardano.
Wolfram Alpha, a natural language processing tool, is a provider of Apple’s Siri and Alexa smart assistants. Wolfram Alpha, developed by Wolfram Research, acts as a “response engine” that directly calculates responses from structured data, providing answers to real questions.
