Complexica Pty Ltd, a leading provider of Artificial Intelligence software for optimising sales & marketing decisions, announced today that the company's Chief Scientist - Dr. Zbigniew Michalewicz - has been named recipient of the prestigious 2019 IEEE Pioneer Award for Evolutionary Computation research. He has published more than 300 technical papers in peer-reviewed journals during the past 30 years, along with many books, including the monograph Genetic Algorithms + Data Structures = Evolution Programs, which was translated into many languages and cited more than 20,000 times in other journals, books, and scientific publications. Dr. Zbigniew Michalewicz is one the world's most cited scientists in the area of Evolutionary Computation, according to Google Scholar, with more than 50,000 scientific citations.
"Prof. Zbigniew Michalewicz played a pivotal role in studying how to effectively apply evolutionary computation methods to solving challenging real-world optimization problems. His numerous early papers on constrained optimization drew considerable attention and contributed enormously to bridging the gaps between academic research and practical problem solving," said IEEE Fellow Professor Leszek Rutkowski. "By any standard, Prof. Zbigniew Michalewicz’s achievements in scientific research, as well as in solving problems of practical relevance, are extraordinary."
