Stephen Wolfram has an incredible record of innovation, ranging from his early work in cellular automata through his development of Mathematica (25 years old this year), and more recently the publication of the book “A New Kind of Science” and the creation of Wolfram Alpha, a unique networked based computation and information retrieval resource.
He will be giving a public address at the Coolidge Auditorium at the Library of Congress on September 4 at 11AM. Advanced registration is required. I’ve reproduced the announcement below with the link for registration. This talk will launch a series of Innovation Talks that are being sponsored by the Library of Congress FEDLINK.
I have had the opportunity to hear Wolfram on several occasions and have found him to be both fascinating and deeply thought-provoking. This is a great opportunity to hear one of the genuine innovators of our time.
