Artificial Intelligence, Computational Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Intelligent Systems have been studied for several decades. I have been personally working in this area for three decades, with innovative research results for which I have been awarded the IEEE Fellow grade.
IEEE must strengthen attractiveness, value, and relevance for members, volunteers, the scientific and professional community, and the entire humanity. IEEE groups must reinforce cooperation towards One IEEE.
Critical aspects are products, services, membership value, diversity, globalization, visibility, innovation investments, and financial sustainability. We should focus more on:
IEEE leadership should continuously grow IEEE as the premiere organization for our scientific and professional community and as the reference for academy, industry, government, and the general public, for the benefit of humanity.
The global perspective allows for sharing knowledge as well as for creating networking opportunities around the world to sustain the global growth of the humanity. None should be ever left behind since everybody is an essential part of our scientific and professional community and everybody can actually contribute to advance technology, innovate, and – ultimately – to the social and economic development.
IEEE should always be a scientific and professional association by people for people. I firmly believe that volunteers, especially the most senior, and the organizational units should always be involved in the decision processes since the inception. They should be integral part of the creation of the solutions, especially for fundamental problems.
