Director, Technical Communication and Strategy
Ever since he got his hands on Mathematica back in college, Yu-Sung has been hooked on its capabilities, especially for graphics. In his six years at Wolfram, he's been involved in the development of visualization, image processing, and spline functionality. Whenever he is not busy with secret Wolfram projects (which has become rare, by the way), he loves spending his time with family and Mathematica explorations—creating fun animations, generating math quizzes for kids, and even carving virtual pumpkins, to name a few.
Chief Typesetting System Developer and Chief Interactive Graphics Developer
With Wolfram Research since 1994, Chris Carlson developed the interactive graphics features that debuted in Mathematica 6. He is particularly interested in applications of Mathematica in design and architecture and has frequently blogged about his explorations on the Wolfram Blog. Today, Chris is a jack of all trades in the company, currently developing advanced interface features that will someday grace a Mathematica near you.
Technical Content Specialist
Vitaliy Kaurov discovered Mathematica in his college studies. Later it became an irreplaceable tool for his research in theoretical physics. As a consequence, he started teaching with Mathematica and Wolfram|Alpha and participated in the Wolfram Demonstrations Project and the Wolfram Science Summer School. Finally, he decided to dedicate his time completely to Wolfram technologies and joined the Technical Communication and Strategy group.
Behind-the-Scenes Judge: Daniel Lichtblau
Symbolic Algorithms Developer
Daniel Lichtblau has been at Wolfram Research for over twenty years. A mathematician by training, he has worked on various parts of the core of Mathematica. These include a variety of symbolic and numeric capabilities as well as some of the basic language features. Of late he is enhancing some of the math capabilities of Wolfram|Alpha. Or de-hancing them, on his bad days. Danny will be an off-camera member of the judges panel for this event.
Public & Community Relations Associate
Zach Parcell started working at Wolfram Research in July 2011 in the Public Relations department. He will be the host of this live event.
