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.

Welcome to Open Source Europe

  • Open Source Europe  gives IT leaders all the insight and technology they need to understand how Open Source can benefit their organisation.

    The rapid expansion of open source impacts across every facet of the modern enterprise from cloud computing, big data, operating systems, to the Internet of Things (IoT).

    Open Source Europe is co-located with five other IP EXPO Europe events: Cloud Europe, Cyber Security Europe, Networks & Infrastructure Europe, AI, Analytics & IOT Europe, and DevOps Europe.

  • Development

    Using an open source development methodology can be markedly different to a closed source equivalent. At Open Source Europe you can pick up practical tips from our seminars or take in technical demonstrations from a range of experts.

    Operating Systems

    Open Source operating systems, such as Linux, are now widely used across the enterprise and are used for all kinds of workloads and business critical applications. With a worldwide community of developers contributing to the source code it’s a proposition on the consideration list of forward looking IT leaders.

    Security

    Security has become an integral part of all aspects of software development. Projects such as Linux and Apache are commonplace in enterprise IT systems and at Open Source Europe the security implications of using such open source projects (as well as closed source and proprietary software) will be debated in detail by a wealth of international experts.

    Practicality

    Traditionally Open Source vs Proprietary has been billed as a battle of Ideology vs Practicality and despite the seemingly large operational benefits and costs savings of running open source the complexity, perceived risk and shortage of staff with the required skills (and their cost) was seen as a major deterrent. At Open Source Europe you will hear from end users at all stages of their journey giving you the opportunity learn from both their successes and setbacks.
