Dr. Ao obtained his PhD from the University of Hong Kong, and finished his post-doctoral research in Oxford University Computing Laboratory, University of Oxford, and Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Harvard University. Dr. Ao is a former Visiting Professor, Cranfield University, U.K. & University of Wyoming, USA. He is the founder and chairman of a leading web hosting and internet application development corporation in Hong Kong. He is also the founder and chairman of a leading mini-warehouse corporation in Hong Kong. Dr. Ao was selected as one of the Tenth Outstanding e-Entrepreneurs (1999) and also appeared in other interview reports including the front-page interview by PC Market, and those by Hong Kong Economic Times, PCWorld Hong Kong, PCXpress, PCWeekly, and PC.com etc...

His other honors included: (1) Selected for the First Edition of Who's Who in Asia (Marquis Who's Who, 2006); (2) Selected for the 25th Silver Anniversary Edition of Who's Who in the World (Marquis Who's Who, 2008); (3) Selected for 2000 Outstanding Intellectuals of the 21st Century (International Biographical Centre, Cambridge, England, 2008); (4) Commended for the Thirty-Fourth Edition of the Dictionary of International Biography (International Biographical Centre, Cambridge, England, 2007), and; (5) Selected for the Who's Who in the World (Marquis Who's Who, 2010) etc...

Dr. Ao is the principal developer of the genomics software CLUSTAG and WCLUSTAG. They are freeware (free software) that enable the medical researchers to conduct their complex disease analysis with no charge. Dr. Ao's research interests are mainly on the big data problems, like data mining algorithms, intelligent systems and their applications, and have published more than eighty books on these domains, including the authored monographs Data Mining and Applications in Genomics (Springer), and Applied Time Series Analysis and Innovative Computing (Springer). Dr. Ao has been promoting the open-access publications of research works for many years, publishing open-access books and organizing open-access journals and proceedings lectures.
