Today, we are honoured to be joined by Stephen Wolfram, a legend in Silicon Valley and a genius in the computing space. We’re talking to him about AI, and all the amazing things that are happening in artificial intelligence and machine learning, and how that will affect the future of money, finance and the ethical discussions we need to be having to plan for it.
Stephen is the creator of Mathematica, Wolfram|Alpha and the Wolfram Language; the author of A New Kind of Science, and the founder and CEO of Wolfram Research. Over the course of nearly four decades, he has been a pioneer in the development and application of computational thinking, and is responsible for many discoveries, inventions and innovations in science, technology and business.
Born in London in 1959, Wolfram was educated at Eton, Oxford and Caltech. He published his first scientific paper at the age of 15, and had received his PhD in theoretical physics from Caltech by the age of 20. Wolfram’s early scientific work was mainly in high-energy physics, quantum field theory and cosmology, and included several now-classic results.
