Abstract
This technical talk will show live calculations in Mathematica 12 and other Wolfram technologies relevant to courses and research. Specific topics include:

* Enter calculations in everyday English, or using the flexible Wolfram Language
* Visualize data, functions, surfaces, and more in 2D or 3D
* Use the Predictive Interface to get suggestions for the next useful calculation or function options
* Access trillions of bits of on-demand data
* Easily turn static examples into mouse-driven, dynamic applications
* Access 12,000 free course-ready applications
* Utilize the Wolfram Language's wide scope of built-in functions, or create your own
* Get deep support for specialized areas including machine learning, time series, image processing, parallelization, and control systems, with no add-ons required

Current users will benefit from seeing the many improvements and new features of Mathematica 12 (https://www.wolfram.com/mathematica/new-in-12/), but prior knowledge of Mathematica is not required.
