Dr. Wolfram's latest book focuses on what has become the driving force behind all of his work: computational thinking. It covers hot topics like the ethics of AI and groundbreaking research like the ongoing process of creating a language that can be understood outside the bounds of our universe. Wolfram is best known for his creation of Wolfram|Alpha, Mathematica, and the Wolfram Language for computer programing. The book is written for the general audience and requires no advanced prior knowledge of computation or computer programing. It's a great read for adults, but also a good source of STEM-related inspiration for middle and high school students.
