Department of Electrical Engineering Professor Salvatore Morgera invited to be Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association (AAIA) fellow
This June, Department of Electrical Engineering Professor Salvatore Morgera was invited to be a fellow of the Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association (AAIA). The association “aims to build a broad AI industry to promote the development and application of AI in different fields of science and technology,” as described on its website.
AAIA Secretary Jesen Liu wrote in an email that the association would like to unify scientists and companies that work with artificial intelligence in the goal of promoting the wider development and application of AI across fields including transportation, communication, robotics, finance and agriculture.
In its initial stage, AAIA invited fellows from IEEE, AAAI, ACM, and other institutes and academies around the world. It encourages its nearly 200 members to promote the development and cooperation of AI in their own fields.
Morgera has over 40 years of leadership in industry, government and academia and has led multidisciplinary teams that have developed visions and strategic plans for government laboratories, industrial research and university academic programs.
He is a fellow of both IEEE and AAAS and has published more than 95 journal papers and 113 conference papers, as well as a book. His research focuses on wireless networks and biometrics, and he’s received research support from a variety of organizations including NASA, the Florida Board of Education, and the Center of Excellence in Biomedical and Marine Biotechnology.
