The Future of Computation & Knowledge: A Night with Stephen Wolfram

January 1st, 2015 § 18 comments § permalink

About Speaker: Stephen Wolfram is a distinguished scientist, technologist and entrepreneur. He has devoted his career to the development and application of computational thinking. 斯蒂芬•沃尔夫勒姆是一位杰出的科学家、技术专家和创业家。他的整个职业生涯都贡献在计算化思维的研发和应用领域中。 His Mathematica software system launched in 1988 has been central to technical research and education for more than a generation. His work on basic science—summarized in his bestselling book A New Kind of Science—has defined a major new intellectual direction, with applications across the sciences, technology and the arts. In 2009 Wolfram built on his earlier work to launch Wolfram|Alpha to make as much of the world’s knowledge as possible computable—and accessible on the web and in intelligent assistants like Apple’s Siri. 他在1988年发布的Mathematica*软件系统就已经对技术研究和教育发展产生了不止一代人的核心影响。他在基础科学领域的工作,被概括成他的畅销书《一种新科学》**,已经定义了一种主要的新型智能方向,其应用横跨科学、技术和艺术。在2009年,他在其早期研究的基础上推出了Wolfram|Alpha知识引擎,用以将全世界的知识尽可能地转化为可计算的形式,并通过网络和类似苹果Siri这样的智能助手让人轻松获取。 In 2014, as a culmination of more than 30 years of work, Wolfram began to roll out the Wolfram Language, which dramatically raises the level of automation and built-in knowledge available in a programming language, and makes possible a new generation of readily deployed computational applications. 在2014年,基于30多年的积累,沃尔夫勒姆开始推出Wolfram语言,能够在这种编程语言中利用其内置的知识引擎显著地提高自动化的程度,并能让下一代的计算型应用成为可能。 Stephen Wolfram has been the CEO of Wolfram Research since its founding in 1987. He was educated at Eton, Oxford and Caltech, receiving his PhD in theoretical physics at the age of 20. This is his first visit to China. 斯蒂芬•沃尔夫勒姆从1987年起创办Wolfram研究公司并任CEO。他曾在伊顿公学、牛津大学及加州理工学院学习,并于20岁的时候获得理论物理博士学位。这是他首次访问中国。]]>

Make something this summer!   Processing workshop went well on the weekend, for those that missed it, well worth checking out when it comes up again. just a friendly reminder that if you havn’t paid your membership dues, please do so at the space. in August paul will be running a free Arduino workshop for members only make sure you have your own Arduino kit, buy through the space to support XinCheJian. also let us know what you think about the new design on the xinchejian website. A friendly reminder that XinCheJian is a hackerspace and not a co-working space/cheap office space, its fine to work on your projects but not cool to run your business out of the space, people involved in this are kindly being asked to move to a co-working facility, we can make introductions if you need them. Just a reminder, if you would like to socialize or network please wait until after the presentations or go outside to give the presenters a chance to.. present.

Summary for Wednesday/本周三开放日综述

Helper sessions at Xinchejian

July 5th, 2013 § 2 comments § permalink

  1. All questions welcome
  2. We all share and help each other
  3. Make & hack stuff – anything!

      …. one theme will be assistive devices as this covers a huge range of technology!

Anyone is free to suggest other themes! All languages are welcome. Proposed guidelines
  • Display “Helper sessions” welcome sign – so people know were to come (don’t be shy !)
  • Setup at one table/area – with chairs and clean workspace.
  • Noisy discussions should move to another area, so main group can continue.
  • Share and document – let other people know if you had a good time, or learnt something (or not)
    • Ask for wiki account and how to use the wiki!
  • You need to be a member

These sessions are intended to extend the always great help available at anytime at Xinchejian 🙂

Aim is to fit in between formal workshop Xinchejian learning and to give some relief to Xinchejian regular members as they often spend most of their time helping others. THANKS for all the interest and support after Wednesday nights talk! When:- Trial Thursday from 7:30 starting from 11th July. If any interest we can try other times, including weekends. Where:- At Xinchejian Cost:- Free, but members only (100RMB per month, cheaper for longer periods) Links – Early draft pages have been started on the wiki:- Helper Sessions    Assistive Devices These will be added to in coming days and weeks. Note “Helper sessions” is a draft name – fits in with Maker, hacker, and also fits in with assistive technology. Any better suggestions?]]>
