Jiming Liu is Chair Professor of Computer Science and Associate Vice-President (Research) at Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU), where he directs Centre for Health Informatics and Joint Research Laboratory for Intelligent Disease Surveillance and Control, a partnership between Computer Science Department at HKBU and National Institute of Parasitic Diseases (NIPD) in Chinese Center for Diseases Control and Prevention (China CDC). 


He received the M.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering (Robotics) from McGill University (with Centre for Intelligent Machines and funded by Hydro-Quebec), following the B.Sc. in Physics from East China Normal University and the M.Arts from Concordia University. Before 1993, he served as a member of R&D staff at Computer Research Institute of Montreal (CRIM), Virtual Prototypes Inc. (VPI) (now Presagis), Knowledge Engineering Technology Inc. (KENTEK) and Canadian Workplace Automation Research Centre (CWARC), Department of Communications, Government of Canada.


Professor Liu’s research interests are in the areas of: 

1.   Data-Driven Modeling, Machine Learning

2.   Web Intelligence, Complex Networks

3.   Multi-Agent Autonomy-Oriented Computing

4.   Healthcare Informatics, Computational Epidemiology


He was named IEEE Fellow in 2011 for original contributions to Multi-Agent Autonomy-Oriented Computing (AOC) and Web Intelligence (WI), and received HKBU President's Award for Outstanding Performance in Scholarly Work in 2007. He was invited to give Keynote Talks at SKG’18, ICDS’14 (1st International Conference on Data Science), BHI’13 (International Conference on Brain/Health Informatics), AI Forum’13, ICNC’08-FSKD’08, ADMA’08, AWIC’07, RSEISP’07, RSKT 2006, AMT’06, and AWIC'05 (Atlantic Web Intelligence Conference) etc., and Plenary Talks at PAAMS’18, WI-IAT’08, KES’05, MMAS 2004, ISMIS’03, and IJCAI’03 (International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence), among many others.


Professor Liu has served as the Co-Director of Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC), which consists of world-wide WIC research centres in over 20 countries, and the Co-Chair of the WIC Technical Committee, since 2002. He was the Chair of IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Intelligent Informatics (TCII) from 2010 to 2014.  He is or was the General or Program Chair/Co-Chair of numerous international conferences, e.g., ISMIS’18, IEEE CBMS’13 (IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems), ACM IHI’12 (ACM SIGHIT International Health Informatics Symposium), ISMIS’12, IEEE ICDM’06, IEEE/WIC/ACM WI-IAT’05, EEE’04, and IDEAL’03 etc.. He has served as the Editor-in-Chief of Web Intelligence Journal (IOS), an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics, Big Data and Information Analytics (AIMS), Network Modeling and Analysis in Health Informatics and Bioinformatics (Springer), and Computational Intelligence (Wiley) etc., a Book Series Editor of Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence and Applications (IOS) and Health Information Science (Springer), and an Editorial Board Member of several other international journals.
