IT Technology Current and Future TrendSpeaker:
Dr. Tai HsuDate:
1:00 PM to 2:00 PMAbstract
Companies like Google and Facebook create wealth by innovative ways of using Information Technology. With massive online data, information and knowledge are statistically computed and transformed into profitable business actions. The heavy online interaction between humans and computers allows machines to learn via the intelligence of massive human brains, and help businesses quickly learn the potential market segments. When machines accumulate sufficient historical knowledge, they can help predict the future also help create new businesses.Biography

Dr. Hsu's major effort has been in research and development projects. His research in areas cover algorithm, artificial intelligence, chemistry, computational biology, cybernetics, robotics, and supercomputing. His work in machine 3D vision won the best paper award (European Meeting in on Cybernetics and Systems Research, 2006). His research in computational biology won the NLM award (National Library of Medicine, of National Institute of Health) in 2001. His work in quantum chemistry won the best paper award (Journal of Chinese Chemical Society, Taiwan, 1988). He was one of the main contributors to the National Science Foundation award (number 9818414, 2002) for the Linux supercomputer cluster of the Computer Science Department of Oregon State University. He was named a distinguished employee (2001) of Providian Financial Corporation for his success in automating presumably automation-impossible jobs. In the past, Dr. Hsu worked as a researcher, R&D application developer, chief engineer, programmer, system administrator, hardware test engineer, and programmer analyst in various organizations from 1995 to 2005.
