Conrad Wolfram is widely known for his thought leadership in reforming education using modern technology. He founded CBM to introduce computational thinking — rebuilding the mainstream maths education curriculum with a computer-based approach. Countries can rapidly adopt this new approach to STEM with modern computational materials manifesting the re-imagined curriculum. Conrad is also European co-founder/CEO of the Wolfram group of companies. Described as the “Computation Company” and uniquely operating at the intersection of computation, data and knowledge, the Wolfram Group is driving innovation across data science, modelling and maths through technology and solutions—including Mathematica software, the Wolfram|Alpha knowledge engine (powering knowledge answers for Apple’s Siri), Enterprise Private Cloud and the Wolfram Language. Wolfram holds degrees in natural sciences and maths from University of Cambridge.
