At the IEEE Board of Directors meeting in November 2015, Risto was made an IEEE Fellow ‘for contributions to neural and evolutionary computation.’
Each year the IEEE Fellow Committee, following a rigorous evaluation procedure, recommends a select group of people with an extraordinary record of accomplishments to be elevated to IEEE Fellow. Less than 0.1% of voting members are selected annually for this member grade elevation.
The IEEE is the world’s leading professional association for advancing innovation and technological excellence for the benefit of humanity. Through its 430,000 members in 160 countries, the IEEE is a leading authority and the trusted voice for engineering, computing and technology information around the globe, publishing a third of the world’s technical literature.
Congratulations to Risto!
