Overall Satisfaction with Wolfram Mathematica

Mathematica is basically used by few of us who are doing some kind of work around machine learning and mathematics. Most of the time we have used this tool to solve some mathematical calculas differentiation problem, apart from that I have also used its API of speech and machine learning. And not everyone was using this, it is restricted to specific departments only.
  • Mathematica performs well when it comes to solve the mathematical problem specifically from calculus.
  • You can ask mathematica in natural English language and it will understand and will give you answers.
  • It has been good while performing analysis on data. It's easy to plot nice graphs/plot with this tool.
  • Also, the way it solves the problem and represents the solution is just amazing. You can see step by step solutions.
  • It is not easy to use this tool as it has it's own scripting language and learning that is not straight forward.
  • On machine learning part of it, I think it should and can improve as there are other tool as well like TensorFlow, Keras which are doing very good.
  • It's a very heavy tool to install on community system and will be good if we can integrate this other tool like TensorFlow, python.
  • It has been very good for solving mathematical problems.
  • Visualising data with it is also amazing.
  • It is difficult to learn its language so it takes time to start with this tool.
  • It is costly to use it's APIs.
Mathematica is good solution in some cases but doesn't perform well in other regions. Mathematica is good in solving mathematical problems but not performs well in machine learning areas. I would suggest to use TensorFlow or Keras for machine learning. Also it performs good for analytics tasks, it is easy to plot data.
I think Mathematica is the best computational engine as of now. You can just ask a maths question and it will answer in great detail. It performs very well when you need to solve any kind of calculus problem of integration or operations over a matrix. And it is not very much well suited when you are doing some work in machine learning. I think for machine learning other tool will work better.
