Company: Wolfram Research

Job Title: Strategic Director

Conrad Wolfram

Wolfram Research is one of the world's most respected computer, web, and cloud software companies—as well as a powerhouse of scientific and technical innovation. As a pioneer in computation and computational knowledge, the company has pursued a long-term vision to develop the science, technology, and tools to make computation an ever-more-potent force in today's and tomorrow's world.

Wolfram Research created products such as Wolfram|Alpha, Demonstrations and the core underlying technology—Mathematica.

Founded by Stephen Wolfram in 1987, Conrad Wolfram founded the European Wolfram Research in 1991and since 1997 has been the strategic director of the worldwide group initiating and directs the business, marketing, design and a variety of strategic technical projects---everything from the CDF Player concept to webMathematica (which underlies Wolfram|Alpha) to conceptualizing wolfram.com.
Interested in how technology and computation can move lives and economies forward and in turn how this affects education, Conrad is a keen promoter of changing the way mathematicsa is taught in schools, in particular how maths has become almost totally discrepant from its real-world application and in 2010 founded computerbasedmath.org to address this worldwide.

    Enterprise computation: the next frontier in AI and Data Science

    Organisations are investing heavily in data science and AI to empower a new era of analytics driven decision-making, but are often disappointed with the results. Why? A key cause has been ineffective use of today’s multi-paradigm computation. Common problems include fixation on one domain/approach, limited workflow automation, different computation tools for similar tasks, non-computable data and legacy interfaces. Given the needs of computation today’s data-rich organisations, the formation of an Enterprise-wide Computation Strategy is crucial. Conrad Wolfram will discuss what’s involved and demo live how the Wolfram Technology Stack—developed over 30 years—uniquely supports Enterprise Computation.
