STRATEGIC DIRECTOR AND EUROPEAN CO-FOUNDER/CEO
Conrad Wolfram, physicist, mathematician and technologist, is Strategic Director and European Co-Founder/CEO of Wolfram - the “computation company” behind Mathematica, Wolfram Language and Wolfram|Alpha (which powers knowledge answers for Apple's Siri) for over 30 years.
Wolfram pioneers new approaches to data science and computation-based development, with technology and consulting solutions that drive innovation in analytics, software development and modelling. Working with start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, it spans industries as diverse as medicine, finance and telecoms.
Conrad is recognised as a thought leader in AI, data science and computation, pioneering a Multi-Paradigm data science approach.
Conrad is also a leading advocate for a fundamental shift of maths education to become computer-based or alternatively introduce a new core subject of computational thinking. He founded computerbasedmath.org and computationalthinking.org to fundamentally fix maths education for the AI age - rebuilding the curriculum assuming computers exist. 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 decisions and data science to 21st century education.
He holds degrees in Natural Sciences and Maths from the University of Cambridge, UK.
