Wolfram + Egyptian Knowledge Bank

Empowering People through Computation—Everywhere

In partnership with the Egyptian government, Wolfram Research is pleased to offer all citizens of Egypt free educational access to our famous software Mathematica under the Egyptian Knowledge Bank (EKB) program.

EKB is a groundbreaking project to provide a wide variety of free knowledge and resources to empower the Egyptian people, promoting learning and education at all levels. It is the single largest national education project in Egypt.

Mathematica is the world's leading computational software—like a super calculator and coding language for every kind of math, science and engineering. Five thousand functions enable everything from solving equations to 3D visualization of data and functions to machine learning to building applications.

What Is the Egyptian Knowledge Bank?

Egyptian Knowledge Bank Logo

The Egyptian Knowledge Bank (EKB) is the single largest national project concerned with education in Egypt. It aims to provide a tremendous variety of free knowledge and resources for the Egyptian people.

Why include computation software?

The EKB contains a vast quantity of knowledge, a valuable resource that will help Egypt build a knowledge economy and surpass the skills of many other countries. While highly valuable, the ability to also problem solve using the latest technology will further empower the development of the next generation of Egyptians, ensuring they can compete for highly skilled jobs and help to foster a modern, confident society. Computation software is an important element in achieving this—encouraging the use of computational thinking in the next generation of learners, and moving Egypt to a computational knowledge economy and beyond.

Why Mathematica and Wolfram?

Mathematica is a state-of-the-art computation, development and deployment software that will give EKB users the means to transform their learning journey and the skills to help create the next generation of Egyptian scholars, scientists and leaders. As far back as 1988, Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Inc., recognized this:

"Mathematica will revolutionize the teaching and learning of math by focusing on the prose of mathematics without getting lost in the grammar."

Think of it as a super calculator for every kind of math you could ever imagine: it contains an extensive knowledgebase for working with a very broad range of tasks, including solving equations, programming, importing and exporting data, visualizing functions and data and much more. It covers traditional fields like algebra, calculus and trigonometry, and new fields like machine learning, image processing and data science. What's unique about Mathematica is its ability not only to work with numbers but also with symbols, and to produce amazing graphics and instantly create interactive models and documents for collaboration.

Mathematica can be used in a variety of ways—you can type individual commands (in a free-form, linguistic input if you want) and get an answer, or learn to build up sophisticated programs. All the while, you are prompted and supported by a predictive user interface and a detailed, interactive documentation system.

The Wolfram Language (which Mathematica is built upon) is designed for a new generation of programmers: it contains a vast depth of built-in algorithms and knowledge, all automatically accessible through its elegant unified symbolic language. With its intuitive, English-like function names and coherent design, the Wolfram Language is uniquely easy to read, write and learn—ideal for education in coding too.

Mathematica is suitable for data scientists, engineers, scientists, economists, financial analysts, researchers, mathematicians, hobbyists, educators, students and even artists!

Ways to Use EKB Mathematica in Academia

From elementary school to universities, Wolfram's products bring the world's best technology to education. Wolfram's flagship system, Mathematica, has been a central tool for higher-education teaching and research across the science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines for nearly three decades. With the addition of Wolfram|Alpha, Wolfram Programming Lab and other products in more recent years, we continue to deliver uniquely powerful solutions for education.

After Education: The Same Mathematica Technology in Every Industry

As well as improving learning, using Mathematica in education gets students ready for industry, as Wolfram technologies are used by many companies across all technical fields. They accelerate innovation, are used in modern data science, drive R&D and work inside many production environments—meeting the most complex scientific and technical needs. Common uses are for algorithm development, numeric and symbolic computation, data analysis, computational geometry, reporting, machine learning, image processing, modeling and simulation of complex systems.

*Please note: Mathematica provided by the EKB is not available for commercial use, but special pricing for Wolfram technologies is available for commercial use in Egypt. Please contact us for more information.
