Engineering Director, Clobotics

Dongfeng Chen is the engineering director of Clobotics, a global leader in computer vision solutions for the wind power and retail industries. Clobotics has end-to-end solutions that combine computer vision, artificial intelligence/machine learning, and data analytics software with different hardware form factors, including autonomous drones, mobile applications, and other IoT devices to help companies automate time-intensive operational processes, increase efficiencies, and boost the bottom line using real-time, data-driven, and actionable insights. Clobotics has headquarters in Shanghai and Seattle and has expanded its footprint to Beijing, Dalian, and Singapore.

Previously, he was a senior architect at Baidu. He recruited, led, and built a team of more than 30 members, including developers, testers, and product managers, and he created the core algorithms for Baidu advertisement and Baidu Kuaixing (online travel booking site), and Baidu Mall (a flash-sale ecommerce platform). He’s an expert in machine learning and distributed systems. His team developed a way to associate the Baidu search pool with paid advertisements, this in turn brought in more than tens of millions of US dollars in revenue, and this technology is still being used until today. In 2010, his team developed China’s first Groupon website for the travel industry; it was the first travel website that offers group bundle deals. Statistics shows the website accounts for 30%–50% of the market share of short-distance travel near Shanghai. This experience gave him a great foundation to build Baidu Kuaixing, Baidu’s online travel booking site, later on. He received his PhD in computer science from North Carolina State University. His thesis topic was on using structured views to optimize query in information integration.
