BEACON’s own Professor Kalyanmoy Deb, the Koenig Endowed Chair in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Michigan State University, was honored today by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society. At the World Congress of Computational Intelligence meeting in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, he was given the IEEE Computational Intelligence Pioneer Award, which is given to at most one person each year who has made major contributions to the field. It recognizes contributions across one’s entire career. Prof. Deb was honored for his pioneering contributions to the field of evolutionary multi-objective optimization. Among those contributions was the algorithm NSGA-II, which has been more widely used than any other evolutionary multi-objective optimization tool. He has led the community in development of this new field that has spurred both widespread academic research and worldwide industrial application.
