Patrick Wong

Dr. Patrick Wong received his BEng (Hons.) degree in Digital Systems Engineering in 1993 and Ph.D degree in Electrical Engineering in 1999 from University of Sunderland, UK. Currently, he is a Lecturer of Intelligent Computer Systems and a supervisor of the Next Generation Multimedia Research Group of Open University.
He joined the Open University in December 1999 as a research fellow and become a lecturer in 2002. Since 2013, he has been a committee member of the Open University's 
Animal Welfare Ethical Review Body, which monitors and approves researches using animals.
He is a member of the 
Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and a chartered engineer. Between 2015 to 2018, he was an executive committee member of the IET's Vision and Imaging Professional network.
He is a member of the Editorial board of Emerald's 
Kybernetes (The international journal of cybernetics, systems and management sciences), associated editor of the British Journal of Mathematics and Computer Sciences. He also regularly reviews paper for a number of journals which includes IET Communications, IET Image ProcessingElsevier's Physics Letters APhysicaThe International Journal of Simulation, Systems, Science and Technologies.
His main sport is table tennis. In fact, he chairs the 
Open University Table Tennis Club and also plays league matches at Milton Keynes Table Tennis League.
He is also a trustee of the 
Milton Keynes Chinese School and Community Centre.

Research Interests
His research interests are in artificial intelligent applications, especially in computer vision applications, biometrics recognition, image processing and fault prediction and detection. He is supervising PhD students on projects related to Multiview Image Processing and Cognitive Radio Technologies. He is also developing an automatic table tennis umpiring system using image/video processing and artificial intelligent techniques. He was a runners up of the BCS Competition for the Machine Intelligence Prize, which was held at ES2002 in Cambridge on 11th December 2002.
