Wolfram Alpha, a massive computational information engine that provides technology for major services like Apple’s Siri assistant, integrates data from the Cardano blockchain.
Wolfram Blockchain Labs (WBL), a subsidiary of Wolfram Research, according to an announcement Thursday; He partnered with IOHK, the technology company founded by Charles Hoskinson.
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 are an essential component for creating advanced smart contracts.
According to the announcement, WBL and IOHK will present the function in 2021; plans to release the integration later in the year.
Wolfram’s computing technology and knowledge base has previously been integrated with major blockchain platforms, including the Bitcoin blockchain and Ethereum network. Other integrated platforms include the ARK blockchain framework and Bloxberg, a large blockchain startup led by the Max Planck Society.
In addition, IOHK, as part of a broader mission to enable blockchain-based trade and business model transformation; It will work closely with WBL to develop smart contract-based applications. Following the partnership, WBL allows developers to learn how to best use Wolfram tools and oracles for Cardano; It plans to include Cardano-specific content in the course material.
Wolfram Alpha is a natural language processing tool, Apple’s provider of Siri and Alexa smart assistants. Wolfram Alpha, developed by Wolfram Research, directly calculates responses from structured data; it acts as a “response engine” providing answers to real questions.
