Samuel Chen, CEO
In June 2018, CEO Samuel Chen founded AIxMed, a Silicon Valley-based startup that combines artificial intelligence and medical technology, in cooperation with medical institutions, academic and research institutions, and medical equipment manufacturers.
Prior to leading AIxMed, Chief Executive Chen worked for over 25 years in software development. Initially, Samuel Chen worked in Silicon Valley for Sun Microsystems, developing Java Workshops; a Java programming language development tool. In 1997, he was invited to join Trend Micro. During his tenure as vice president of research and development, he built the first software development lifecycle team for Trend Micro’s first software project. Under Chen’s leadership, the software R&D team would eventually grow from a small handful of people to more than 500 people worldwide. The Trend Micro’s turnover would also increase rapidly from $70 million to $800 million. Trend Micro became one of the top three security companies in the world and the largest software company in Taiwan.
In 2008, Chen was invited to join Asustek Computer as the head of the software department and began to increasingly develop the software capabilities of Taiwan’s electronics industry and building the foundations for software and hardware integration. In 2011, as Vice Chairman, Chen joined and established the Software Development and Research Department of Compal Computer. Chen led 500 software development engineers to develop Android and IoT products in cooperation with Silicon Valley technology companies. Three years ago, Chen turned to artificial intelligence and machine learning development and was responsible for leading the artificial intelligence laboratory of Compal Computer.
As a student, Chen represented the Department of Computer Engineering of Taipei Municipal Jianguo High School and Jiao Tong University in the software programming competition of the Ministry of Education. In 1983 and 1986, he won the first place in the national high school group and university information department. Samuel Chen graduated with a bachelor’s degree in computer engineering from Jiao Tong University and a later master’s degree in computer science from the University of Southern California.
Because of our geographical proximity, Chen has worked in the technology industries of both Taiwan and Silicon Valley. He has also served as a director of Silicon Valley Taiwanese American Industrial Technology Association (TAITA) and a technical consultant for the Asia Silicon Valley Development Agency (ASVDA).
