Conrad Wolfram speaker

Conrad Wolfram

Oxford, UK

Renowned mathematician and leading pioneer of education technology

Strategic Director, Wolfram Group (1997-present); Founding CEO, European Wolfram Research (1991-present)

Expert speaker on the future of big data and education reform

Conrad Wolfram, pioneering technologist, physicist, and mathematician is strategic director and European co-founder/CEO of the Wolfram group of companies. He talks about the future of data and innovation, and shines a light on the issue of how big data will be used by governments and corporates alike. He explains how required key skills will change as a new era of knowledge economy emerges, and how those at this frontier will benefit most.

Conrad is at the helm of the worldwide arm of Wolfram Research, the organisation behind the cutting-edge knowledge engine Wolfram|Alpha (powering knowledge answers for Apple’s Siri) and the renowned Mathematica software used across the world in most technical universities, government departments and companies. More recently these technologies have been joined by the Computable Document Format (CDF) standard, Wolfram Finance Platform, Cloud and Language. Wolfram’s innovative software development environment and interactive deployment platform provide a unique computation ecosystem for developing and communicating big ideas.

For over 25 years, Conrad and his colleagues at Wolfram have pushed boundaries at the intersection of computation, maths, and knowledge. Conrad’s business and technical leadership has been central to the rise, spread and democratisation of high-level computation, particularly through the use of automation and interactivity.

Arguing that humans need to adjust their skills for this new era, he is also the world’s leading advocate for a fundamental shift of maths education to be computer-based, laying out the rationale and roadmap in his widely acknowledged 2010 TED talk and founding computerbasedmath.org to drive implementation of the change. The movement is now a worldwide force in re-engineering the STEM and coding curriculum.

Our Comment

"Conrad is passionate about how technology and computation is fundamental to improving our daily lives. The tools that he and his colleagues at Wolfram Research have created have applications in many different fields ranging from the economy right through to education. He often writes code during the keynote to demonstrate this breadth of application. He an expert speaker on topics ranging from future technology and web3.0, to the new era of computational knowledge and the reform of math education."
