We sat down with Wolfram shortly after his SXSW talk for an hour-long interview. In the first part, below, we discuss the Wolfram language, its application to wearables and corporate data science needs, and Wolfram’s own life-logging efforts.

In part two, which we’ll publish tomorrow, we’ll cover Wolfram’s vision for the future of computing — and the fate of the human race.
"If you're wearing six different kinds of health metrics and personal analytics tracking thingies, and they're measuring all kind of different things ... the question is, what do you do with it?"

Researchers in Los Angeles will soon launch a battery that attaches to any device, including iPhones, Fitbits, and Kindle readers, and provides seven days of run time on a single charge. If they can make this technology work — and sell it — you may never have to scramble for a public wall socket to charge your phone again.

Your laptop contains lithium. So does your tablet and your smartphone. It's a key ingredient used in these gadgets -- and in electric cars' batteries. But as worldwide demand for these batteries grows, manufacturers will need to find new sources for lithium. As it turns out, there are huge, untapped deposits of the element in Afghanistan.
The future of Silicon Valley's technological prowess may well lie in the war-scarred mountains and salt flats of Western Afghanistan. United States Geological Survey teams discovered one of the wor...

After a decade of being able to do pretty much whatever it wants, whenever it wants, America’s top spy shop, the National Security Agency (NSA), is running into some roadblocks.
