Here’s how to use the Wolfram plugin with ChatGPT, which has recently been made more readily available to ChatGPT Plus subscribers.

If you’re planning to use the Wolfram plugin with ChatGPT, you’re first going to need to become a subscriber to the paid version of the service. After that – you’re going to need to find out how to access ChatGPT plugins. Once you have access to plugins and you’ve enabled them – you should be able to choose GPT-4 as your language model option, and once you click on the list you can install the Wolfram plugin.

The Wolfram plugin is used primarily to plot mathematical data and information in digestible, visual formats. Alongside that, it’s partly used to provide natural language responses to social and humanitarian calculations.

However – this isn’t a particularly complex example, and Wolfram actually allows you to ask much tougher questions that will demand even more complex explanations.

Effectively – as long as you can format your question in natural language that ChatGPT can respond, Wolfram can help produce an understandable mathematical response.
