Description & Coverage
Description:

Cognitive informatics is a multidisciplinary field that acts as the bridge between natural science and information science. Specifically, it investigates the potential applications of information processing and natural intelligence to science and engineering disciplines.

This collection, entitled Discoveries and Breakthroughs in Cognitive Informatics and Natural Intelligence, provides emerging research topics in cognitive informatics research with a focus on such topics as reducing cognitive overload, real-time process algebra, and neural networks for iris recognition, emotion recognition in speech, and the classification of musical chords.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • 3D object classication
  • Classification of musical chords
  • Computational brain analysis
  • Emotion recognition in speech
  • Granular rough computing
  • Interactive data-mining
  • Iris recognition analysis
  • Neural networks for iris recognition
  • Real-time process algebra
  • Reducing cognitive overload
Reviews & Statements

...examines innovative research in the emerging, multidisciplinary field of cognitive informatics.

Editor/Author Biographies

Yingxu Wang is professor of cognitive informatics, brain science, software science, and denotational mathematics, President of International Institute of Cognitive Informatics and Cognitive Computing (ICIC, www.ucalgary.ca). He is a Fellow of ICIC, a Fellow of WIF (UK), a P.Eng of Canada, and a Senior Member of IEEE and ACM. He was visiting professor (on sabbatical leave) at Oxford University (1995), Stanford University (2008), UC Berkeley (2008), and MIT (2012), respectively. He received a PhD in Computer Science from the Nottingham Trent University in 1998 and has been a full professor since 1994. He is the founder and steering committee chair of the annual IEEE International Conference on Cognitive Informatics and Cognitive Computing (ICCI*CC) since 2002. He is founding Editor-in-Chief of Int. Journal of Cognitive Informatics & Natural Intelligence, founding Editor-in-Chief of Int. Journal of Software Science & Computational Intelligence, Associate Editor of IEEE Trans. on SMC - Systems, and Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Advanced Mathematics & Applications.

Dr. Wang is the initiator of a few cutting-edge research fields such as cognitive informatics, denotational mathematics (concept algebra, process algebra, system algebra, semantic algebra, inference algebra, big data algebra, fuzzy truth algebra, and fuzzy probability algebra, visual semantic algebra, granular algebra), abstract intelligence (?I), mathematical models of the brain, cognitive computing, cognitive learning engines, cognitive knowledge base theory, and basic studies across contemporary disciplines of intelligence science, robotics, knowledge science, computer science, information science, brain science, system science, software science, data science, neuroinformatics, cognitive linguistics, and computational intelligence. He has published 400+ peer reviewed papers and 29 books in aforementioned transdisciplinary fields. He has presented 28 invited keynote speeches in international conferences. He has served as general chairs or program chairs for more than 20 international conferences. He is the recipient of dozens international awards on academic leadership, outstanding contributions, best papers, and teaching in the last three decades. He is the most popular scholar of top publications at University of Calgary in 2014 and 2015 according to RG worldwide stats.
