a Taiwanese American computer scientist with research interests in artificial intelligence, fuzzy logic, theorem proving, database, and software engineering and the internet. In 1967, Chin-Liang Chang wrote his Ph.D thesis at University of California, Berkeley on fuzzy logic, advised by its inventor Lotfi A. Zadeh  . At National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland, along with Richard C. T. Lee, James R. Slagle and John K. Dixon, Chin-Liang Chang researched on automated theorem proving, to extend Slagle's semantic resolution principle  , an inference rule for first-order predicate calculus, to deduce logical consequences from a set of axioms  .
Chin-Liang Chang further worked for IBM Almaden Research Center, San Jose, California, Lockheed Missiles & Space Company, Inc., Menlo Park, California  , and Nicesoft Corp., USA  , where he developed the Fuzzy programming language NICEL. After his retirement, he has being enjoying being an entrepreneur. His motto is “There is ‘no distance’ in Internet, and there is ‘no age’ in entrepreneurship”  .
