Chair of IEEE SMCS TC-BCS on Brain-inspired Cognitive Systems.
Dr. Wang is recognized by Google search as the initiator of a few cutting-edge research fields including those of cognitive informatics, denotational mathematics (i.e., concept algebra, process algebra, system algebra, semantic algebra, big data algebra, and visual semantic algebra), abstract intelligence (aI), the 3rd generation of information theory in the knowledge space, the spike frequency modulation (SFM) theory, mathematical modeling of the brain, cognitive computing systems, cognitive learning engines, and the cognitive knowledge base theory. His basic studies have been across contemporary disciplines of sciences including intelligence, robotics, knowledge, computer, information, brain, cognition, software, data, neurology, linguistics, and system sciences. He has created and proven 100+ theorems in the aforementioned fields. He has published 500+ peer reviewed papers and 36 books. He has presented 50 invited keynote speeches in international conferences. He has served as honorary, general, and  program chairs for 33+ international conferences. He has led 10+ international, European, and Canadian research projects as PI by intensive collaborations with renowned peers and leading industrial partners. He is a top 2.5% scholar worldwide according to Research Gate’s international big-data benchmarks.
