Cardano joins forces with Wolfram Alpha to create oracles
Cardano (ADA) has joined forces with the computer intelligence tool Wolfram Alpha. The partnership will be used in particular to create oracles.
The news was announced yesterday by IOHK, the company that manages Cardano (ADA). In particular, Wolfram Blockchain Labs, a branch of Wolfram Alpha dedicated to blockchaining, will enable the addition of Cardano. Wolfram Alpha’s Ethereum Code computer intelligence tool will enable the Cardano blockchain to be queried directly with the language tools offered by the service.
In concrete terms, this means that developers will be able to integrate external data into the Cardano blockchain. The idea is to create “avant-garde” oracles according to IOHK. This extends the use cases of Cardano’s smart contracts, and their scope.
The language aspect should not be underestimated either, according to IOHK, which explains :
“This makes Cardano’s information available to virtual assistants like Alexa and Siri. Once it is integrated, users will be able to query the system to find information or solve computer problems as simply as if they were talking to a virtual assistant. »
Cardano joins the closed club of cryptomonnages integrated in Wolfram Alpha.
For the time being, only Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ark (ARK) and Bloxberg had been integrated into Wolfram Alpha, so the new gives Cardano a new legitimacy. The integration is not yet functional, but it will be offered to the public in the course of 2021.
In recent weeks, Cardano seems to want to facilitate the task of smart contract developers. At the beginning of the month, we learned that smart contracts will be compatible with all programming languages. This could enable Cardano to stand out from its immediate competitors.
