Abstract:
Theoretical applied studies of techniques for building useful intelligent systems, something that has always been a goal of scientists and engineers. Although Artificial Intelligence has been providing a shed to this for many years, Computational Intelligence was restated in an effort to provide some new links to human intelligence, and, therefore, some additional premises and inspirations for building even smartest systems in more practical ways. The backbone of Computational Intelligence is composed of relatively more traditional areas such as artificial neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary computation, and genetic algorithms. The research work in this area is outlines in four major groups: 1. Modeling Cognitive Systems; the main purpose of this research activity is to use computational intelligence techniques to develop systems that model several behaviors of the Brain activity. In general, computational modeling can help to understand the functional organization of a particular cognitive phenomenon, 2. Computational modeling of visual selective attention; a computational model of human visual selective attention has been implemented according to the perspective of a systems engineer and computer scientist. The computational model is biologically plausible and supports recent theories from the fields of neuroscience and cognitive psychology. 3. Artificial Neural Network Modeling; in Single Neuron Modeling, a generic neuronal model using a block form of operational diagrams is investigated. The power of this representation is determined by the fact that an easy identification and extraction of the most essential features of single neuron models is allowed. 4. Intelligent Applications; on the application side, computational intelligent methods are investigated in many areas including, diagnostic and prognostic systems in medicine, meteorological systems, engineering systems design, electric load forecasting, and financial applications., and intelligent applications.

Short Bio:
Christos N. Schizas Professor of Computer Science, University of Cyprus. Received a B.Sc. degree in electronic engineering from the University of London, UK, in 1978, M.B.A degree from the University of Indianapolis, Indiana, in 1988, and Ph.D. degree in systems theory from the University of London in 1981. He received the 1979 William Lincoln Shelley award from the University of London for excellence in research, and a Fulbright fellowship for collaborative research in the USA in 1993. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of London (1980-1983), and was Professor of Computer Information Systems at the University of Indianapolis (1989-1991). Since 1991 he has been with the Department of Computer Science, University of Cyprus. He served as Vice Rector of the University of Cyprus (2002-2006). His research interests include computational intelligence, medical informatics, diagnostic and prognostic systems, system modelling and identification of brain activity. He edited conference proceedings and served as associate editor of the journal Technology and Health Care, area editor of the journal, IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine, and member of the editorial board of the journal, Intelligent Systems. He has published over 120 refereed journal and conference papers in these areas and supervised researchers, PhD and MSc students. He is the founder of the Computational Intelligence laboratory of the University of Cyprus. He has taken part in European Commission initiatives for promoting the Information Society, especially the Euro-Mediterranean partnership.
