Short bio:

Currently, Chih-Hong Cheng is a technical manager at DENSO, researching safety technologies for autonomous driving. He is also an adjunct faculty (unpaid/voluntary) at Academia Sinica, the most prestigious academic research institute in Taiwan.

Previously, Chih-Hong was a permanent researcher at fortiss - Research Institute of the Free State of Bavaria, where he developed the research topic of dependable AI for autonomous systems. Before his tenure at fortiss, he was a scientist in ABB Corporate Research Germany, where he worked on projects related to intelligent production systems (Industry 4.0), cloud-related technologies for industrial automation (PaaS, IaaS), and the analysis of complex industrial software systems. Chih-Hong received his doctoral degree with distinction in CS from the Technical University of Munich.
