Wolfram was educated at Eton.

He received his Ph.D. in particle physics from Caltech at age 20 and joined the faculty there. He became highly interested in cellular automata at age 21.
Stephen Wolfram was in 1987 founding editor of the journal Complex Systems.
Stephen Wolfram’s parents were refugees who immigrated from Westphalia to England in 1933. Wolfram’s father, was a novelist, and his mother was a professor of philosophy .

But why he is an important person for us in these days? Because “WolframAlpha” is his creation.He is the father of it.

What is “WolframAlpha” – It is  a Computational knowledge engine

In March 2009, Wolfram announced Wolfram Alpha, a computational data engine to be launched in May 2009.It has  a new approach to knowledge extraction and an easy-to-use interface.

Who can say it is not a next generation SearchEngine.

I think it will be  a revolutionary thing!

Another interesting thing is we all known “MATHEMATICA”, the statistical and mathematical software is a product of  WolframResearch Team!
