Academy accepts "AI Scholars" as new fellows

With the support and nomination from our existing members, the Core Academy is glad to announce that we recently accepted four distinguished scholars whose study is related to "AI and its applications" to join our organization. 

Artificial intelligence (AI) is intelligence exhibited by machines, particularly computer systems. It is a field of research in computer and information science that develops and studies methods and software that enable machines to perceive their environment and use learning and intelligence to take actions that maximize their chances of achieving defined goals. Such machines may be called AIs.


Bimal K. Bose

Professor Bose is an electrical engineer, artificial intelligence researcher, scientist, educator, and currently an emeritus chair professor of power electronics in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Prof. Bose and his associates have been responsible for many pioneering research contributions. He was the principal engineer for microcomputer control of electric and hybrid vehicle projects in GE-CRD which were sponsored by the US Department of Energy. Control of modern electric and hybrid cars is mainly based on his research. He is a pioneer in AI applications in power electronics. Professor Bose is a Lifetime Fellow of the IEEE and an elected member of the US National Academy of Engineering (2017, " For contributions to advancing power electronics technology and power conversion and education.")

According to Prof. Bose, “I feel highly honored for my election as a Fellow of the Core Academy in the Division of Engineering and Applied Sciences. In my career, I have been mainly involved in research and teaching in the main area of power electronics and its applications in energy systems. My main research contributions are the invention of transistor ac switch, adaptive hysteresis band current control, soft switched high-frequency link power conversion, MPPT control algorithm in PV systems, pioneering of microprocessor/DSP control, and AI-based power electronic systems control.  I have published more than two hundred papers and hold 21 US Patents. I have written/edited and published eight books. I have consulted within the US National Science Foundation, Electric Power Research Institute, USDA, Research Triangle Institute, GE-CRD, Bendix Corporation, Fuji Electric, Ansaldo, General Dynamics, Lutron Electronics, PCI Ozone Corporation, American Superconductors, Emerson Electric, Kolmorgen Corporation, Delco Remy, etc. I have promoted power electronics globally through wide extensive scale seminars, tutorials, keynote addresses, books, and invited presentations”

Sergey V. Ablameyko

Professor Ablameyko is a Professor and former Rector (Vice-Chancellor) of Belarusian State University. He is a Fellow of the Institution of Electrical Engineers (UK), a Member of the Academia Europea, a Member (Academician) of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, the Belarusian Academy of Engineering, and also many other international academies. He has made original contributions to the field of computer vision and image analysis.

According to Prof. Ablameyko, "I feel very honored having been elected as a Fellow of the Core Academy. It is more than 45 years I have worked in the area of computer vision and image analysis. Starting from the processing of binary images, now computer vision is a big and important part of Artificial Intelligence, processing all possible types of video and images. I am very happy that I could contribute in this important area by publishing dozens of books, and hundreds of papers and creating many practical systems that work in various industries and social spheres. Many of these results have been obtained inside international scientific groups. And now we work to get Artificial computer vision that will be very close to our human perception.”

Boris Mirkin

Professor Mirkin is a Distinguished Professor at the Department of Data Analysis and Artificial Intelligence, the National Research University “Higher School of Economics”, a Professor of Computer Science (Emeritus) at Birkbeck, University of London, and a Member of the Academia Europea. His Research Interests include Mathematical models and algorithms for visualization, Clustering, Decision Making, Mathematical Classification, Evolutionary Trees, and Data and Text Interpretation.

Professor Mirkin began his work in data analysis to embrace categorical decision-making and classification. His models and methods include partitions and orderings within a linear algebra framework. He extended these to apply the maximum parsimony principle to taxonomic reconstructions. His applications range from genome history reconstructions to taxonomy generalizations to upwelling dynamics modeling to evaluation of research impact to internet advertising.

Abdulmotaleb El Saddik

Professor Saddik, an AI researcher, is a Distinguished University Professor at the University of Ottawa. He is also the Director of the Multimedia Communications Research Laboratory, a Fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada, an IEEE Fellow, a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering, and a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery. He is the recipient of several national and international awards, including the IEEE Canada C.C. Gotlieb Computer Medal and the IEEE Canada A.G.L. McNaughton Gold Medal. His research interests include Interactive Media & Serious Games, Biomedical Engineering and Biofeedback, Multimodal Interactions, Social Media Multimedia, Tele-surveillance Tangible User Interfaces, and Smart Cities.

El Saddik’s research focus is on the establishment of digital twins to enhance the quality of life of citizens using artificial intelligence (AI), as well as multimedia computing and communications, and extended reality (XR) including haptics/AR/VR. His present research focus is digital twins with five pillars: artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, IoT and social networks, multimodal interactions, and quality of experience powered communication networks (5G and tactile internet).
