Mathematic Cloud applications Sub_title: Sage Notebook and Wolfram Alpha
SAGE NOTEBOOK SERVER
There has been some ongoing development during the last months to improve the sage notebook server. The new server, which scales much better under heavy load is now in beta stage. People are invited to test it. It gives an extremly comprehensive CAS/mathematic System. You can store / share / collaborate your notebooks and calculations online!
This is a computational knowledge machine. It has access to huge databases and uses Mathematica for calculations. Moreover it tries to give the output in a ' layman' langugage and uses AI to parse the input, i.e. it tries to understand the question. I'd say its an invaluable tool for homeworks.
If there ever is a "Cloud Puppy" those tools should go in
