Description

From abstract: "Stephen Wolfram (bio),Creator of Mathematica, author of A New Kind of Science, and CEO of Wolfram Research, Inc.

For three centuries scientists have looked to mathematics to understand how nature works - and to create the foundations for technology. But based on his surprising discoveries about simple computer programs, Stephen Wolfram, creator of Mathematica and author of A New Kind of Science, has developed a radically new approach.

Join us for an evening with Stephen Wolfram as he not only addresses many fundamental questions about science and the universe, but also suggests major new directions for technology.
Introduction By:
Dr. John Gage, Chief Researcher and Director of the Science Office, Sun Microsystems."
