Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

Wolfram Innovator Award

Wolfram technologies have long been a major force in many areas of industry and research. Leaders in many top organizations and institutions have played a major role in using computational intelligence and pushing the boundaries of how the Wolfram technology stack is leveraged for innovation across fields and disciplines.

We recognize these deserving recipients with the Wolfram Innovator Award, which is awarded at the Wolfram Technology Conferences around the world.


Mark Rawlins

Executive Chairperson and Chief Engineer, Energy and Combustion Services

Areas: Mechanical Engineering, Research and Analysis, Software Engineering

Energy and Combustion Services offers global energy management analytics and autonomous measurement systems for large-scale mining and industrial manufacturing. Mark Rawlins is a professional engineer (mechanical), certified energy manager, and measurement and verification professional. He specializes in energy system modeling for efficiency and productivity, using digital twins to simulate and support new designs. His primary goal is aiding companies in transitioning to net-zero carbon emissions while maintaining efficiency. He also develops advanced metering systems that provide insights into energy and process deviations, some operating autonomously.

Wolfram Language is foundational to his R&D work, which includes a road condition monitoring system that marries vision-based road defect detection and location with vehicle dynamics and vibration signal processing using edge computation to report road and safety conditions autonomously. Separate devices can communicate and accept instructions from each other for extended inspections.
