About Conrad:

Conrad WolframConrad Wolfram runs the worldwide arm of Wolfram Research, the mathematical lab behind the cutting-edge knowledge engine Wolfram Alpha. He is interested in how technology and computation can move our lives and economies forward and in turn how this affects education. In particular he feels that the school subject of math has become almost totally discrepant from its real-world application. In 2010, he founded computerbasedmath.org to address this  problem worldwide. He is also Strategic Director of the Wolfram Worldwide Group and CEO of Wolfram Research in Europe. He earned his MA from Cambridge University, UK where he read physics and mathematics. For fun, he takes photos and plays the piano.
