Founded by Stephen Wolfram in 1987, Conrad Wolfram founded the European Wolfram Research in 1991 and since 1997 has been the strategic director of the worldwide group initiating and directs the business, marketing, design and a variety of strategic technical projects---everything from the CDF Player concept to Mathematica (which underlies Wolfram|Alpha) to conceptualizing wolfram.com.<br />Interested in how technology and computation can move lives and economies forward and in turn how this affects education, Conrad is a keen promoter of changing the way mathematics is taught in schools, in particular how maths has become almost totally discrepant from its real-world application and in 2010 founded computerbasedmath.org to address this worldwide.

Marc Priestley

A single minded focus took him from apprentice mechanic with a small racing team in North London, working on Caterham Seven kit cars, through Formula Ford, British GT, Formula 3, Formula 3000 and on to his goal of working in Formula One in the year 2000.

 

An amazing ten years with McLaren Racing, as Number One Mechanic and part of the famous pitstop crew, culminated in helping Lewis Hamilton to become World Champion in 2008. Marc left the team in 2009 to pursue a media career.

Starting by sharing his experiences at the team for various websites and magazines, his writing was picked up by the producers of BBC Radio 5 Live's F1 show and he was invited to join the team as pitlane reporter for the British GP. That only served to light the fire of passion for broadcasting with Marc and over the following years he's succesfully built a career in television, both inside and outside of motor racing. Still freelance, he now has relationships with a number of well known networks and production companies.

AI in the enterprise

Most companies already use AI to some degree, for example it is now commonplace as part of a spam filter. However it is accepted wisdom that in the future AI will become a core part of every company’s technology strategy.  At IP EXPO Nordic you can learn what is already possible with AI directly from the companies using or developing this technology and discover what will be possible in the near future.

  

Interaction with AI

The relationship between humans and computers is changing. In the future employees and customers of every company are likely to interact with AI regularly whilst receiving or delivering a service. Discover how the most advanced companies in the world interact with AI and the cost and time savings possible by doing so.

  

Data Science and Machine learning

Whilst the concept of making decisions or predictions based on the study of data is not new, the quantities of data that businesses now have access to have increased exponentially.  Added to this, the amount of data that new technologies such as IoT will produce in the future is irreversibly changing the way that businesses need to analyse their data. When dealing with data at this scale the only option is to make the machine intelligent enough to learn by itself.

  

Deep Learning                 

Deep learning allows computers to process and understand infinite amounts of data such as images, sound, and text. So much so it is now possible for a computer to react to certain complex scenarios better than a human would. This will lead to a profound paradigm shift that will shape the next phase of enterprise computing.
