Big Think’s latest livecast will feature Wolfram Research founder Stephen Wolfram and Harvard Law professor Jonathan Zittrain as they offer a look at the Wolfram Alpha, a soon-to-launch engine that could revolutionize the way you search for information on the internet.
Scientist and inventor, Stephen Wolfram, who pioneered Mathematica, has been lauded for his research in high-level computing for years. He received his PhD in theoretical physics at the age of 20 and went on to become the youngest ever recipient of a MacArthur fellowship. His work has made advances in cosmology, theoretical particle physics, computer algebra, and cellular automata. He is currently CEO at Wolfram Research.
