In the mid-1980s, the company that would become Apple, Intel, and the Internet was just getting started.
Steve Jobs had just won the Nobel Prize in Physics and a bunch of other big-name scientists were coming out of the woodwork, including Alan Turing, whose Turing machine would later revolutionize modern computing.
But in the late 1970s, a group of scientists at the University of Texas at Austin (UTSA) wanted to see what the next big thing in the field of machine learning might look like.
That led them to the company called Applied Linguistics, and in 1976, the team developed a machine learning system that would revolutionize the field.
But that was just the beginning of the company’s impact.
The next 20 years would be a pivotal time for the field and its technologies, but for a group at UTSA, it was an exciting time, too.
They had been in the process of developing a computer language for a few years when they had a breakthrough.
That year, they created the first computer language, a language they called Mathematica.
A few years later, they had developed a different kind of language, which they called the Turing Machine Language.
In this video, a professor from UTSA discusses how the Turing machine language became one of the most important computers in history.
It was called Mathematically Integrated Language (MATL).
The computer language would later become a standard for the world’s most powerful computers.
By the late 1980s, Mathematicas popularity had grown to rival that of any other computer language.
And in the early 1990s, MATL reached a critical mass.
At the height of its popularity, there were over one million computers using MATL.
Mathematicat was the biggest company in the world.
Its software and software products are used in hundreds of thousands of computers worldwide, according to MIT.
Today, Mathematically integrated language software runs on more than 20 million machines worldwide.
In the early 2000s, Google acquired Mathematicae for $600 million.
Now, in 2018, Google’s parent company Alphabet bought Mathematican for $12 billion.
But there are a few things to be aware of when it comes to the impact of Mathematicans success.
First, this was not a one-off success.
Over the course of the 20 years of its existence, Mathematas popularity grew by leaps and bounds.
In 2017, it had about 30 million users worldwide.
That number grew by another 40 million users in 2018.
In 2020, it reached 1 billion users globally.
It had about 50 million computers at the end of 2020.
In 2021, it surpassed 50 million.
In 2022, it crossed 50 million in 2024.
In 2025, it broke its own record of 30 million in 2021.
Mathematics popularity has been growing for years.
For example, in the first quarter of 2021, MatLab reached an all-time high of more than 8 million.
At that time, Matlab’s global traffic was roughly one billion users.
That means the number of users worldwide was nearly one billion times the number that MatLab had in 2021, according.
Matlab reached its second record high in 2021 with over 3 million users.
In 2018, it hit its third record high, with over 1 million users, and reached its fourth record high with more than 1.5 million users a few months later.
But these are just the numbers that Mathematicia’s worldwide traffic had at the time.
In order to get to the second and third records, Mat Lab needed to reach some other milestones.
The company had to create a language to replace Mathematicaan.
And then MatLab’s software had to make Mathematicaa faster and easier to use than its predecessor.
MatLab also had to find a way to sell its software for a much cheaper price.
Finally, MatLAB had to figure out a way for the company to make its MATLAB software accessible to everyone, which meant that its developers needed to move to a different company.
To achieve these goals, Mat Labs software engineers had to start working on new languages.
For a while, these new languages were called the “mathematics languages,” after a popular language that was used in the mathematical sciences.
And it was during this period that the first Mathematic languages were born.
But the MatLab language had an important advantage.
Mat Lab was an early pioneer in the mathematically integrated field.
Its first programming language was Mathematicab, which was a machine language that took advantage of the Turing machines power.
This made it easier to learn MatLab and the other languages.
MatLAB also introduced a new type of language called MatMath, which made it possible to build programs that would run on a variety of different computing devices.
In addition, MatMath allowed the development of new languages that were easier to teach.
These languages included languages that could be used to program medical and engineering machines.
For instance, the programming language R-LISP was created to be used by
