Giving Back to Alma Mater: OpenPie Supports Carnegie Mellon University and Global Sustainable Development Innovation


CMU Shanghai Alumni Association Holds "Giving CMU Day" Theme Event


On the occasion of Thanksgiving, the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) Shanghai Alumni Association held the "Giving CMU Day" themed event. During this event, Ray Von, Chairman of the CMU Shanghai Alumni Association, Founder and CEO of OpenPie, and Initiator of the 1024 Digital Industry Foundation, represented OpenPie in donating to the CMU Sustainable Development Fund. This donation aims to support CMU's efforts in global sustainable development innovation and talent cultivation. Additionally, any donations made to CMU through the Shanghai Alumni Association will be matched by OpenPie on a 1:1 basis for the CMU Sustainable Development Fund. Ray Von expressed that leading impactful research and education in computer science, driving advancements in the field, and nurturing the next generation of leaders has been his long-standing commitment. It is this commitment that led to the establishment of OpenPie in 2021, with the mission of "Data Computing for New Discoveries" and the vision to create a world-class innovation-driven institution in the field of foundational data computing based in China.

"If Peking University is where my dreams began, then CMU is the cradle of my aspirations. I am incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to study and pursue further education at these two world-renowned institutions, which have benefited me for a lifetime," said Ray Von in a previous interview. "Herbert Simon, utilizing symbols to represent input signals and employing a computational model defined on Turing machines to simulate human intelligence, established the renowned CMU School of Computer Science and pioneered artificial intelligence. Excellence and impact are at the core of CMU's mission and reputation. Now, while running OpenPie, I also provide long-term support to organizations like the 1024 Digital Industry Foundation and the CMU Shanghai Alumni Association, hoping to give back to my alma mater and society as much as I can."
