Dr. Bin Xie was awarded the 2021 Alumni Professional Award for Computer Science & Engineering. Xie earned his Masters of Engineering in 2001 and PhD in 2006 in Computer Science from University of Louisville Speed School of Engineering.

His R&D interests are Mobile Computing, AI/ML, and Cybersecurity. In these areas, he has published 70+ papers in IEEE conferences and journals, and co-authored three books.  Xie credits his Speed School experience to his subsequent success.

“One of the most significant experiences was the Mobile Computing course in which the professor designed several projects,” said Xie. “Through these projects, I developed not only the understanding of cutting-edge knowledge in this area but also the thinking skills to achieve a higher level of accomplishment in my research. These projects motivated me to explore challenging issues in this areas and consequently fostered new R&D programs,” he said.

Xie is the Founder and CEO of InfoBeyond Technology, an innovative company specializing in Network, Machine Learning and Data Security within the Information Technology industry. Customers range from small businesses to public corporations such as Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Honeywell, Manchester-Boston regional airport, HCA Healthcare, and Sun Pharmaceuticals. In addition, his team delivers ground-breaking solutions for federal agencies including the Department of Energy, U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the Department of Transportation. Some of these projects have collaborated with universities including the University of Louisville.

Xie said Speed School offered opportunities to meet a variety of professors and prestigious scientists and gain his vision for his state-of-the-art research.

“I am deeply appreciative of Speed School for the social skills I have earned as a result of these programs. These skills gave me confidence to start up InfoBeyond Technology targeting to transit viable technology to useful and business-doable products.”
