Conrad Wolfram, physicist, mathematician and technologist, is CEO and Co-founder of Wolfram Research Europe.
Described as the ‘Computation Company’ and uniquely operating at the intersection of computation, data and knowledge, the Wolfram Group is driving innovation across data science, modelling and maths through technology and solutions—including Wolfram|One and Mathematica software, the Wolfram|Alpha knowledge engine (powering knowledge answers for Apple’s Siri), Enterprise Private Cloud computation hub and the Wolfram Language.
Conrad is a leading advocate for a fundamental shift of education to become computer-based or alternatively introduce a new core subject of computational thinking. He founded computerbasedmath.org (CBM) and computationalthinking.org to drive implementation of this change. The movement is now a worldwide force in re-engineering the STEM curriculum.
Conrad regularly appears in the media to talk about subjects ranging from the future of the web to 21st century education. He holds degrees in natural sciences and maths from University of Cambridge, UK
