Introduction Dr. John Gage, Chief Researcher and Director of the Science Office, Sun Microsystems
Educated at Eton, Oxford, and Caltech, Wolfram received his Ph.D. from Caltech at the age of 20. In 1981, he was the youngest ever recipient of a MacArthur Prize "Genius" Fellowship. In the late 1980's, he created the ground breaking Mathematica program, and founded Wolfram Research, of which he is CEO.
After more than ten years of highly concentrated work, Wolfram last year published his widely acclaimed book, A New Kind of Science. Its publication has been seen as initiating a paradigm shift of historic importance in science.
