Install the Wolfram Language on Raspberry Pi

Working with the Raspberry Pi Foundation, effective immediately there’s a pilot release of the Wolfram Language—as well as Mathematica—that will soon be bundled as part of the standard system software for every Raspberry Pi computer.

Here’s how one would take this whole technology stack and use it to switch on LEDs by setting voltages on GPIO pins:

And here’s some image analysis on a selfie taken by a RaspiCam:

Future Raspbian images will ship with the Wolfram Language and Mathematica by default; existing users with at least 600MB of free space on their SD card can install them today by typing:

             sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install wolfram-engine
