|Jie Zhang is an Assistant Professor of the School of Computer Engineering and Academic Fellow of the Institute of Asian Consumer Insight at NTU. He obtained Ph.D. in Cheriton School of Computer Science from University of Waterloo, Canada, in 2009. During PhD study, he held the prestigious NSERC Alexander Graham Bell Canada Graduate Scholarship rewarded for top PhD students across Canada. He was also the recipient of the Alumni Gold Medal at the 2009 Convocation Ceremony. The Gold Medal is awarded once a year to honour the top PhD graduate from the University of Waterloo. His papers have been published by top journals and conferences. He has won 4 best paper awards at CNSM'10, IM'09, ITCS'10 and CSWWS'06. Jie Zhang is also active in serving research communities as guest editor for Computational Intelligence, trust theme chair for PST'13, co-chair for WIT-EC and TRUM, associate editor for ICIS'10, PC for AAMAS, AAAI and IJCAI, and reviewer for JAAMAS, Artificial Intelligence journal, etc.|
|Jie Zhang's research has been focused on the design of effective, robust and scalable intelligent software agents and incentive mechanisms, through the modeling (trustworthiness, preferences, cognition and knowledge status) of different entities in a wide range of environments (e.g. e-marketplaces, ad hoc networks, social networks, social and semantic web, e-learning systems and collaborative intrusion detection networks) where each entity may provide opinions about others, using AI techniques (data mining, machine learning and probabilistic reasoning).|
