The 17-year-old engineering academy student presented “A Big Data Analytics Platform for STEM Education Using the Wolfram Engine on Raspberry Pi” on Oct. 22.

The Wolfram Conference is presented by Wolfram Research. The company dates back to 1987 and according to their website, is one of the world’s most respected computer, web and cloud software companies as well as a powerhouse of scientific and technical innovation. The conference is attended by professionals hailing from all corners of the globe. STEM professionals compete for coveted spots to present their programs and innovations.

Patel worked with UAB Electrical and Computer Engineering department chairman Murat Tanik to develop the platform he presented at the conference. According to Tanik, the platform would allow high school students in the area to learn advanced programming and engineering skills.
