Dr. Chi’s research primarily focuses on the intersection of information technology, networks, and innovation. Her research spans three broad areas: (1) understanding how information technology influences firm innovation; (2) studying the interactions among participants in online communities and the dynamics of how online communities evolve over time; (3) studying how social networks affect entrepreneurial performance.
Dr. Chi’s research has been funded by grants from Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and Office of Entrepreneurship at RPI.
Her research has appeared in a number of academic journals, including
Information Systems Research
Journal of Organizational Computing and Electronic Commerce, International Journal of Electronic Commerce, Information Systems and e-Business Management, International Journal of Information Management,
Journal of Knowledge Management
Ph.D., University of Kentucky; M.S., Nanjing University of Science and Technology; B.S., Nanjing University of Science and Technology

James Hendler is the Tetherless World Professor of Computer and Cognitive Science, and the Assistant Dean for Information Technology and Web Science, at Rensselaer. He is also a faculty affiliate of the Experimental Multimedia Performing Arts Center (EMPAC), serves as a Director of the UK’s charitable Web Science Trust and is a visiting Professor at the Institute of Creative Technology at DeMontfort University in Leicester, UK. Hendler has authored about 200 technical papers in the areas of Semantic Web, artificial intelligence, agent-based computing and high performance processing. One of the inventors of the “Semantic Web,” Hendler was the recipient of a 1995 Fulbright Foundation Fellowship, is a member of the US Air Force Science Advisory Board, and is a Fellow of the American Association for Artificial Intelligence, the British Computer Society and the IEEE. He is also the former Chief Scientist of the Information Systems Office at the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and was awarded a US Air Force Exceptional Civilian Service Medal in 2002. He is the Editor-in-Chief emeritus of IEEE Intelligent Systems and is the first computer scientist to serve on the Board of Reviewing Editors for Science. In 2010, Hendler was named an “Internet Web Expert” by the US government.

Industrial and Systems Engineering
Dr. Cheng Hsu is Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering and Professor of Information Technology, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY12180-3590. He earned a Ph.D. degree from the Ohio State University in Management Sciences (with a minor in Computer Science), MS in Industrial and Systems Engineering from Ohio State University, and BS in Industrial Engineering from Tunghai University, Taiwan. He served on Rensselaer's Faculty Council, Faculty Senate, and various other academic committees at the school and institute levels (e.g., the Institute-wide BS-IT and MS-IT curricula committees). He has been a keynote speaker to a number of international meetings in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Italy, and Canada, as well as in the US.
Dr. Hsu is currently engaging in research on service science, with a focus on service design and system design. He developed a thoery of Digital Connections Scaling to help explain the dynamics of new service in the connected world. The theory recognizes population-wide connected value cocreation among persons and organizations as a transforming mode of production for Knowledge Economy, and thereby analyzes new busness designs and service system design laws. A new model accompanies the theory: Hyper-Networks, which engages the emerging network science to provide insights into the analytic nature of connected value cocreation. New system design methods aim at helping scale IS up to the populations of customers, providers, and resources; down to individual users; and transformational to cross-sectional collaboration. The theory is also suported by such results as instrumentation of the environments (using, e.g., RFID systems, wireless sensor networks), Cyber-Infrastructure-Assisted Enterprises, and the market approach to open and scalable information exchange. He is a believer of person-centered models on the Internet.
In addition to the above original work on serfvice science, Dr. Hsu is also devoted to studying sustainability design for products and production systems, and alternative energy system design for micro grids at the community level. The originator of the Metadatabase and Two-Stage Entity-Relationship Models, Dr. Hsu's work have contributed to much of the research on these topics as reported in this Web site, Enterprise Integration and Modeling. He has been a principal investigator of Rensselaer's Computer-Integrated Manufacturing and Adaptive Integrated Manufacturing programs, and a number of other government- and industry-sponsored projects. The sponsors include companies such as Alcoa, Digital, GE, GM, IBM, and Samsung Electronics, and government sources such as the U.S. National Science Foundation, Army Research, New York State, and NATO.
Dr. Hsu teaches Multi-disciplinary Capstone Engineering Design, Discrete Systems Simulation, Databases, e-Business engineering, and Information Systems. His publications include a number of books and edited volumes, and over a hundred scholarly papers in a number of archivaljournals and proceedings. He is a member of AIS, IEEE and ASEE. He has served and continue to serve on the editorial board for several journals and organizations, including, e.g., IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics.
