Background

Dr. Patrick Hung previously worked with Boeing Research and Technology in Seattle, Washington on aviation services-related research projects. He has two U.S. patents on the Mobile Network Dynamic Workflow Exception Handling System with Boeing in the U.S. He currently works with the College of Technological Innovation at Zayed University​ on several smart city and cybersecurity research projects in the United Arab Emirates. He is also a Visiting Researcher at University of São Paulo, Brazil and National Technological University (UTN)-Santa Fe, Argentina.

He published two peer-reviewed Springer books, entitled Mobile Services for Toy Computing and Computing in Smart Toys, in 2015 and 2017, respectively. He also chairs the Deep Learning, Ubiquitous and Toy Computing Minitrack and the Computing in Smart Toys​ Symposium in the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS). This is the first book dedicated to toy computing, a new discipline that explores how technology influences and enhances the development of smart toys.

He is an Honorary International Chair Professor at National Taipei University of Technology, Taiwan and an Adjunct Professor at Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology, China. In addition, he was a Visiting Professor at the Shizuoka University and University of Aizu, Japan. He was an Adjunct Professor at Wuhan University, China. He was also a Visiting Faculty Member at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and Chinese University of Hong Kong, and a Guest Professor in University of Innsbruck, Austria, University of Trento and University of Milan, Italy.

Dr. Hung was a Research Scientist with Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) in Canberra, Australia. He also has prior industrial experience in e-business projects in North America and Hong Kong. He is a founding committee member of:

  • Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) International Conference of Web Services
  • IEEE International Conference on Services Computing
  • IEEE Congress on Services
  • IEEE Congress on BigData

He is a founding member of the IEEE Technical Committee on Services Computing and related IEEE conferences in Web Services.

He is a founding member of the IEEE Technical Committee on Services Computing (IEEE TCSVC) and related IEEE conferences in Web Services. He received the IEEE TCSVC Outstanding Service Award in 2018. He is Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Services Computing, as well as an Executive Group Member and Co-ordinating Editor of the Information Systems Frontiers by Springer.

From 2000 to 2004, he served as a panelist for the Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer programs of the National Science Foundation (NSF) in the U.S.

He has studied at CLC Japanese Language Institute in Tokyo, Japan and completed Level 2, 3 and 4 Certificates of Japanese-Language Proficiency (administered by the Japan Foundation and Association of International Education Japan). He has also been a visiting PhD student at the Graduate School of Informatics, Kyoto University, Japan and RSA Laboratories West in San Mateo, California.

Dr. Hung has PhD and Master in Computer Science from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology; a Master in Management Sciences from University of Waterloo, Canada; and a Bachelor in Computer Science from University of New South Wales, Australia.
