**Welcome to the official Twitch channel for Stephen Wolfram** Stephen Wolfram is the creator of Mathematica, Wolfram|Alpha and the Wolfram Language; the originator of the Wolfram Physics Project, the author of A New Kind of Science and other books; and the founder and CEO of Wolfram Research. Over the course of four decades, he has been a pioneer in the development and application of computational thinking and has been responsible for many discoveries, inventions and innovations in science, technology and business. Stephen’s streams will vary from “Live CEOing” working corporate meetings to “Q&As for kids [and others]” to Live Coding Competitions to streams, Q&As and working sessions focused on the Wolfram Physics Project. If you’re new here, take a second to say hello! If you’ve been following Stephen’s work for a while, don’t hesitate to make others feel welcomed! If you have questions, don’t be afraid to speak up! If you want to know more about what it is we do here, take a look at the various links.

Stephen’s “day job” as the CEO of Wolfram Research keeps him heavily involved in the design and implementation of the Wolfram Language. As new functionality is “born”, you’re invited to see the process, ask questions, influence real-life software design and help name new functions! What will actually be going on if you tune into a livestream? It’s pretty diverse. You might see some new Wolfram Language function being tried out (often based on code that’s only days or even hours old). You might see a discussion about software engineering, or trends in machine learning, or the philosophy of science, or how to handle some issue of popular culture, or what it’s going to take to fix some conceptual bug. You might see some new area get started, you might see some specific piece of Wolfram Language documentation get finished, or you might see a piece of final visual design get done. There’s quite a range of people in our meetings, with a whole diversity of accents and backgrounds and specialties. And it’s pretty common for us to need to call in some extra person with specific expertise we hadn’t thought was needed.

The Wolfram Physics Project was launched on April 14, 2020 & ever since Stephen and his collaborators, colleagues and guests have livestreamed discussions, working sessions and Q&As. Science is usually done behind closed doors, but not this project. You’re invited to get involved, ask questions & offer insights. More information about the project [including the tools and archives of the project]: [Wolfram Physics](https://www.wolframphysics.org) Stephen's new book, "A Project to Find the Fundamental Theory of Physics" is available now! - get your copy today: at [Wolfr.am/Physics-Book](https://wolfr.am/physics-book) Follow [@WolframPhysics on Twitter](https://twitter.com/wolframphysics) for announcements and updates. Notebooks and video work logs from these streams are freely available at [Archives](https://www.wolframphysics.org/archives/index/)

**[Wolfram Language](https://www.wolfram.com/language/)** Programming with built-in computational intelligence allows programmers to operate at a significantly higher level than ever before, by leveraging built-in computational intelligence that relies on a vast depth of algorithms and real-world knowledge carefully integrated over three decades. **[Wolfram Research](http://wolfram.com/)** Founded by Stephen Wolfram in 1987, Wolfram Research is one of the world's most respected computer, web and cloud software companies - as well as a powerhouse of scientific and technical innovation. **[Wolfram|Alpha](http://www.wolframalpha.com/)** Wolfram|Alpha's long-term goal is to make all systematic knowledge immediately computable and accessible to everyone. Wolfram|Alpha brings expert-level knowledge and capabilities to the broadest possible range of people - spanning all professions and education levels. **[Elementary Introduction to the Wolfram Language](http://www.wolfram.com/language/elementary-introduction/2nd-ed/)** This free on-line book provides an elementary introduction to the Wolfram Language and modern computational thinking. It assumes no prior knowledge of programming, and is suitable for both technical and non-technical college and high-school students, as well as anyone with an interest in the latest technology and its practical application. **[A New Kind of Science](http://www.wolframscience.com/)** Starting from a collection of simple computer experiments illustrated by striking computer graphics, Stephen Wolfram shows in this landmark book how their unexpected results force a whole new way of looking at the operation of our universe.
