Stephen discusses the origin story behind Mathematica and why it is so unique and sometimes considered unusual. He explains why mixing prose, code, and data together in one integrated environment is the future of computing and communication, and how his ideas inspired Jupyter notebooks. #podcast #seradio #ieeecs @ComputerSociety @stephen_wolfram
