Hey, what's up?

I am Miles H.F. Wen (温豪夫), founder and CEO of Fano Labs (formerly known as “Accosys”), an AI startup that works on speech recognition and natural language processing technologies to help enterprises with their customer services. Funded by TSSSU@HKU, Incu-Tech Program, Enterprise Support Scheme of Hong Kong Government, angel investors, and Horizons Venture, the private investment arm of Sr. Li Ka-shing, Fano Labs is one of the best AI startup in the region.

Since Jul. 2016, I have been serving as an Honorary Assistant Professor (Electrical and Electronic Engineering) at the University of Hong Kong. I do not teach any specific course. However, I mostly collaborate with my awesome colleagues in conducting academic research while, as the same time, mentor young students and help them with their career.

I received my Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Hong Kong. My research primarily involved smart grid stability and control, wide-area measurement system (WAMS), energy storage system management, and information and communication technologies (ICT). I also spent time working on natural language processing (NLP), machine learning & artificial intelligence, recommendation systems, and indoor localization technologies.

As an extremely dedicated adult, I have a clearly stated vision for my life, which I keep true deep to my heart and gudie me through all decisions I have made. Here is a copy of my life vision statement (+Updated on 25 Jun. 2015).

As an open-minded young researcher, I am always looking forward to learning new interesting things and collaborating with people. So, please feel free to contact me if you have any comments on my work or if you feel like sharing some interesting stuffs with me. I will always be pleasant to talk.

As an energetic young man, I love travelling, photography, reading, music (Jazz in particular), and a variety kinds of sports including tennis and squash. I always love to talk with people and make new friends. So, feel free to contact me if you want to make friends, too!
