Dr. Bing-Yang Lin joins The IOTA Foundation as a Senior Software Engineer.
Dr. Bing-Yang Lin lives in Hsinchu, Taiwan, and has almost 10 years of programming and research experience. Before joining IOTA, Bing-Yan worked for the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and MediaTek (MTK) for eight years, solving real-world problems. He helped TSMC build a semiconductor memory failure pattern identification system based on data mining, and helped MTK build a machine-learning-based analysis flow to reduce the test cost of integrated circuits. He received his PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) in 2015.
From 2016 to the May of 2019, he worked in MTK as a senior engineer, and focused on firmware architecture development, code optimization, verification flow automation, and customer-return-chip debug. In 2017, he hosted and coordinated a code-optimization workshop in MTK and was one of the main speakers. The goal of the workshop was to share code optimization and performance analysis experiences for programmers. He was also one of the main researchers in an MTK AI project, with the goal of evaluating the possibility of replacing complicated parts of communication system design by using deep neural networks.
In addition to winning multiple academic awards and fellowships when he studied in the NTHU, he was the only winner of a doctoral thesis award from the Taiwan Integrated Circuit Design Society in 2018. He has published 18 papers in many of the world’s premier journals and conferences, including IEEE Transactions on Computers (TC), IEEE Design & Test of Computers (D&T), IEEE International Test Conference (ITC), IEEE Test Conference in Asia (ITC-Asia), IEEE Design Automation Conference (DAC), etc. His passion lies in data science, data analytics, machine learning (including deep learning), and system-level design optimization.
On joining IOTA
IOTA foundation is a non-profit and a very active organization which is willing to put human and financial resources into building the next-generation blockchain, which is a trust machine. This is an approach to bring innovation and evolution to both financial and non-financial products/systems, as well as a promising backbone of the future sharing economy. It is extremely exciting , and I’m glad to be a part of the journey!
We are very happy to announce Bing-Yang joining the project. His solid engineering and research background will greatly benefit the IOTA foundation. Give him a warm welcome!
