Yes, that's a good way too. You can't go wrong with powers of two. |

Awesome. There are some NKS-related stuff from Stephen Wolfram in other formats like video and podcast at his website https://www.stephenwolfram.com/publications/?cat=new-kind-of-science but not the book itself. I think that somewhere else on... |

I should mention that this one is symmetric. If a=b then b=a. > mc ai, cy jcm mc ai, mpbm ex mpi dwixmecj: upimpiy 'mex jcaziy ej mpi > tejq mc xwvviy mpi xzejkx bjq byycux cv cwmybkicwx vcymwji, cy mc mbgi > bytx bkbejxm b xib cv mycwazix, bjq... |

Thanks, yes, that sounds familiar from a talk Eric Rowland gave. It is pretty neat though, and yeah, a little hard to explain in words. |

What do you get someone who already has all the Mathematica T-shirts and posters? (Sadly, this link to the good stuff at the Wolfram store is almost impossible to find https://store.wolfram.com/view/misc/ ) Maybe they've already read A New... |

I wanted an unlabeled map for a geography test, and looking at the web I realized it would be easier to just make a custom map using CountryData. Turned out I had to instead use AdministrativeDivisionData for the US states, and I had to do a web... |

I just noticed a [paper][1] that Carlo Rovelli wrote on the 2nd law of thermodynamics. He is a physicist famous for quantum gravity, and usually has interesting things to say, but he seems to not have read Stephen Wolfram's [A New Kind of... |

One approach is to make a parametrized guess and then use Reduce. For example, try g[c0_,c1_,c2_][x_]:=c0+c1*x+c2*x^2 and then use Reduce on a small set of examples. FullSimplify[Reduce[... |

This was a great project. I was wondering, since the general impression is that typical behaviors are already found in simple rules, how the machine learning compares to simple statistics. For example, a quick test for halting might be to examine a... |

Great job! You might be interested in a simpler proof. One approach is to use experimental mathematics by playing around and discovering statements that seem true. If you accumulate enough then you'll find the right ones that can form lemmas to... |
