Prof. Angelov (PhD '93, DSc '15) holds a Chair in Intelligent Systems. He is a Fellow of the IEEE, of the IET and of ELLIS (https://ellis.eu) and Vice President of the International Neural Networks Society (INNS). He founded in 2010 the Intelligent Systems Research group which he led till 2014 when he founded the Data Science group at the School of Computing and Communications which he led until he went on sabbatical in 2017. Upon return from his sabbatical in 2018 he established LIRA (Lancaster Intelligent, Robotic and Autonomous systems) Research Centre (www.lancaster.ac.uk/lira ) which brings together 50+ academics/faculty across different Departments of the University. He is a founding member of the Data Science Institute and of the CyberSecurity Academic Centre of Excellence at Lancaster. His PhD supervisor, Dr. Dimitar P. Filev is now Member of the National Academy of Engineering, USA. He has over 300 publications in leading journals, peer-reviewed conference proceedings, 3 granted US patents, 3 research monographs (by Wiley, 2012 and Springer, 2002 and 2018) cited over 10000 times with an h-index of 52 and i10-index of 168. He has an active research portfolio in the area of computational intelligence and machine learning and internationally recognised results into online and evolving learning and algorithms. More recently, his research is focused on explainable AI, including deep neural networks, deep rule-based classifiers as well as anthropomorphic and empirical machine learning. Prof. Angelov leads numerous projects (including several multimillion ones) funded by UK research councils, EU, industry, UK MoD. His research was recognised by ‘The Engineer Innovation and Technology 2008 Special Award’ and ‘For outstanding Services’ (2013) by IEEE and INNS. He is also the founding co-Editor-in-Chief of Springer’s journal on Evolving Systems and Associate Editor of several leading international journals, including IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics, IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems, Fuzzy Sets and Systems, Soft Computing, etc. He gave over two dozen key note/plenary talks at high profile conferences.
