Conrad Wolfram is Strategic Director and European co-founder/CEO of the Wolfram group of companies. Described as the “Computation Company” and uniquely operating at the intersection of computation, data and knowledge.
“Playing the wrong game badly is hardly smart. Let’s lead in rewriting the rulebook and succeed at the right game.”
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 also widely known for his thought leadership in reforming education using modern technology. He founded computerbasedmath.org to fundamentally rethink and rebuild the mainstream maths education curriculum, introduce computational thinking and combine with coding now computers can be assumed. The resulting major change is now a worldwide force in re-engineering STEM.
