Biographical history

Jim C. Tam is a professor in the School of Information Technology Management at Ryerson University. Tam has been a member of the faculty since 1999. He received his BSC, MEng and PhD from the University of Toronto. His MEng studies focused on the emulation of inductive inference (learning) on computing machines, and his doctoral dissertation investigated the feasibility of dynamic linking as a viable complement to traditional static links over the World Wide Web. Through 17 years as a senior management and technical professional, both in the private and public sectors, he gained extensive expertise in the management and development of system projects. His areas of expertise include system architecture mapping, business and strategic planning, system design and development, and information exploration and retrieval. Tam has held a research grant from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Council of Canada(NSERC) to build intelligence-based software for a deterministic model in data privacy. After years of lecturing in China, he has developed a special interest in formulating business models for the internationalization of Chinese enterprises. Tam was instrumental in establishing a number of Federal Government and international standards committees. He has been invited by the United Nations, governments, business and academic sectors to deliver presentations on a wide range of IT and management topics.
