Dr. Xie is the Co-Founder of WIOMAX. He is a researcher and inventor focusing broadly on creating cutting-edge, smart and scalable optimization solutions for real-world applications toward achieving intelligent transportation, sustainable urban mobility, smart cities, with integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and optimization, data analytics and Internet of things (IoT).
He is a leading expert on creating smart and scalable modeling and optimization solutions for computationally hard and real-world problems, with his broad and deep academic and industrial experience, and his multidisciplinary background in very diverse fields including Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, and Transportation Science, etc.
He is the lead inventor of the smart and scalable urban traffic control system, which integrates artificial intelligence (AI) with transportation theory to reduce traffic congestion, with 25% travel time saved in the real-world traffic networks. The system was listed as 25 Great Things about computer science at Carnegie Mellon. He has also worked as co-PI and key member for multiple traffic and transportation projects.
