Engineering Professor Recognized for Dedication to Fuzzy Systems
Vladik Kreinovich, Ph.D., professor of Computer Science, has been recognized for his contributions and research in Fuzzy Systems by The International Fuzzy System Association (IFSA). The IFSA is a worldwide organization dedicated to the support, development and promotion of fundamental fuzzy theory issues related to: sets, logics, relations, natural languages, concept formation, and linguistic modeling. These systems control the decision support in management and administration of human organizations in manufacturing and process industries.
The IFSA chose ten members at the World Congress of International Fuzzy Systems Association in Otsu Japan. Vladik, is the only selected recipient within the United States, and has been awarded the title of Fellow in the IFSA.
"I'm very honored to be recognized," Kreinovich said, "but this honor is not just about me. It's also about my students, colleagues and UTEP so I feel this is a collective award."
Kreinovich has 35 years of experience and his expertise is in the areas of uncertainty and imprecision. Kreinovich has collaborated with specialists in radio astronomy, geoscience, environmental science, and other areas such as biology when working on interdisciplinary research. Kreinovich has been a part of the UTEP family since 1990 and says he is very thankful that UTEP has allowed him to be on the forefront of groundbreaking research.
