The clarity and utility of the International System of Units (SI) would be improved if its notation were made a formally unambiguous symbolic language. This could be achieved with minor changes, and would enable the development of software that could correctly (i) check SI style in text and (ii) manipulate/verify quantities, SI units and prefix algebra in scientific and engineering computations. These tools could lead to better SI usage and fewer computational errors.
