Wolfram Alpha, a major computational knowledge engine, has planned to partner with Cardano to address work on the “avant-garde oracles.”
It has been reported that Wolfram Blockchain Labs (WBL) will integrate Cardano’s blockchain data into Wolfram Alpha by allowing developers to integrate external data into Cardano’s smart contracts.
As the partnership will address work on the so-called “avant-garde oracles,” the companies believe are a necessary component to build advanced smart contracts.
Cardano is about to get a lot smarter. Computational engine Wolfram Alpha is building Cardano into its blockchain. The companies will be creating some next-level smart contracts when this rolls out next year. https://t.co/kHPrKyaFi7 — Cointelegraph (@Cointelegraph) December 18, 2020
However, Wolfram’s computational technology and knowledge base were previously integrated with major blockchain platforms including the Bitcoin blockchain and the Ethereum network.
Other integrated platforms include the ARK blockchain framework and Bloxberg, a major blockchain initiative led by the Max Planck Society.
WBL also plans to include some Cardano-specific content in its course material, allowing developers to learn how best to use Wolfram tools and oracles for Cardano.
Thus, developed by Wolfram Research, Wolfram Alpha acts as the so-called “answer-engine,” providing answers to factual queries directly by computing the answer from structured data.
