  • Welcome from the President

      President’s Message: Ghostbusters and CIS Hey all, Well, it looks like I’m the President of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society for 2022-2023. Talk about your “hard act to follow!” I have great admiration and affection for Bernadette Bouchon-Meunier who led us through the unprecedented time of the COVID-19 pandemic with such grace and acumen. I have been fortunate to have worked with her over the years in several capacities, have had an inside view of CIS as her President-elect in 2021, but most of all to be able to call her “mon amie”. She’ll continue to provide leadership as past president in 2022 to my great relief. Bernadette followed a long line of dedicated and innovative Presidents; CIS has been fortunate for their leadership. Now it’s my turn “in the barrel”. The good news for me (and for you!) is that we have a large cast of extremely talented folks who carry the brunt of the organizational load. The Vice Presidents are energic and committed. Besides Finance,...

    Computational Intelligence for Disaster Planning and Mitigation Regstration: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/1937491640390008079 Wed, Jan 26, 2022 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM EST Abstract: Infrastructure planning and restoration following a disaster is a complex problem requiring the integration of multiple data types and the evaluation of complex and potentially nonlinear relationships. This research uses publicly available data sets shared by the United States Geological Survey (The National Map, Digital Elevation Models, seismic data), the United States Army Corps of Engineers (River Discharge data, Lock & Dam and Levee inventory), and the U.S. National Weather Service (rainfall data, predicted weather patterns). This body of work examines evolutionary computation for infrastructure restoration planning in the aftermath of tornadoes and earthquakes. The use of neural networks is considered to predict changing water levels to capture the timing and impact of flooding and flash...

  • Welcome from the Vice President for Industrial and Governmental Activities

    It is an honor and a privilege to serve as the first Vice President for Industrial and Governmental Activities (I&GA) of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS). Below, I will explain the motivation and origins of this new organization However, let me first describe my background and experience to explain how we arrived at the formation of I&GA and its mission. I began as a volunteer when our society was still a Council ( Neural Network Council). I spent almost three decades of my professional life as a member of its ExCom and AdCom, helping to nurture its growth into a Society (Neural Networks Society followed by Computational Intelligent Society). As a CIS member with a strong background in industrial applied research, I spent much of my time analyzing the academic research presented in our conferences and publications. My objective was to find the relevant "nuggets" that I could refine and apply to the industrial challenges in my work. A recent survey with CIS members...
