We are computer scientists, and we look for interesting problems to solve.  These may include complex engineering systems and challenging research topics.  But how do we choose the right problem to solve?  In this talk, I shall share hits and misses during my career as a researcher, entrepreneur, and corporate executive.  In particular, I will discuss repeated patterns of mistakes from engineering-minded perspectives and our scattered instances of success in identifying higher-value problems in computer vision, graphics, parallel processing, and data-driven AI.


Wei-Chao Chen is the Chief Digital Officer at Inventec Corporation and the Chairman at Skywatch Innovation.  His research interests include graphics hardware, computational photography, augmented reality, and computer vision.  Dr. Chen was the Chief AI Advisor at Inventec (2018-2020), an adjunct faculty at the National Taiwan University (2009-2018), a senior research scientist in Nokia Research Center at Palo Alto (2007-2009), and a 3D Graphics Architect in NVIDIA (2002-2006).  Dr. Chen received his MS in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University (1996) and Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (2002).

All faculty and students are welcome to join.
