IEEE Frank Rosenblatt Award
The IEEE Frank Rosenblatt Award is a Technical Field Award sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society.
The award, established in 2004, is named in honor of Frank Rosenblatt, who is regarded as one of the founders of neural networks. Basing his research on study of fly vision, he developed the single-layer input layer and an output layer of neural cells. Frequent presentation of a pattern or patterns resulted in changes in the input to output connections, facilitating future recognition of these patterns, or memory. His work influenced and anticipated many modern neural network approaches.
This award will be presented for outstanding contributions to the advancement of the design, practice, techniques or theory in biologically and linguistically motivated computational paradigms including but not limited to neural networks, connectionist systems, evolutionary computation, fuzzy systems, and hybrid intelligent systems in which these paradigms are contained.
This award may be presented to an individual, multiple recipients, or a team of not more than three members. This award is administered by the Technical Field Awards Council of the IEEE Awards Board. Prize items include a bronze medal, certificate and honorarium.
