The 4th Industrial Revolution represents entirely new ways in which technology becomes embedded within societies and our human bodies.

As the years have progressed, our reliance on automated technology has deepened, permeating every facet of our daily operations. Artificial intelligence has transitioned from a futuristic concept to an everyday reality, fundamentally reshaping the business landscape.

Over the past decade, the emergence of groundbreaking technologies such as genome editing, machine intelligence, blockchain, and advanced materials has profoundly impacted our lives, signaling the onset of the fourth Industrial Revolution. These innovations are reshaping industries, economies, and societies, heralding a new era of interconnectedness and technological advancement.

AI applications are invading and revolutionizing every industry. 

Computer programming has been called digital literacy. It becomes an essential skill and not a choice for the next generation.

Robotics is a fun and engaging way to introduce programming and engineering to youth, the golden age for developing

the computing mind and interest in technological innovations. From Bill Gates to Mark Zuckerberg to Elon Musk to

Alexandr Wang, their early success in technology business ventures has hugely benefited

from their interest in technology at a

very tender age.

The current educational system has been outdated for a long time. If this continues, it will leave many students seriously unprepared for the rapidly changing future.

Ad Astra School, founded by Elon Musk


an institution established by a group of professionals specialized in robotics and programming, who are passionate and dedicated to bringing the best cutting-edge technologies and knowledge to the younger generations

To keep up with the constant changes and meet the challenges of time, Dr. Haipeng Xie, an adjunct Professor of the Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering at the University of Toronto, established Dr X Academy of Robotics and Coding in 2015.




Dr. Haipeng Xie

Founder of Dr X Academy

Dr. Haipeng Xie, founder of Dr X Academy, is also an adjunct Professor in the Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering at the University of Toronto. He is also the Chief Technology Officer at Dr Robot Inc., developing cutting-edge intelligent mobile robotic technologies. Over the past 27 years, Dr. Xie has joined the development of Canadian Space Robotic Arms, pioneered humanoid robot companion development, led unmanned mobile robot technology development, joined forces with the University of Toronto, Western University, and Canadian Surgical Technologies and Advanced Robotics Center (CSTAR) on medical and clinical intelligent robot development. Dr Xie is also the Chief Scientist for two Nasdaq listed education companies (Tarena International and Visionary Education Technology). As a father, Dr. Xie always enjoys mentoring and inspiring his two kids, on their various "making" projects, such as building RC models, 3D design and printing Minecraft figures, making Nintendo piano playing robots, Raspberry Pi Arcade Machine, and publishing iOS games since their early age. In 2015, Dr. Xie founded Dr X Academy, providing unique STEM learning platform for youths through professionally guided robotics and coding programs.
