Dr. Leonid Perlovsky is CEO, LP Information Technology, Professor of Psychology and Engineering at Northeastern Univeristy, Visiting Scholar at Harvard University, School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Medical School Athinoula Martinos Brain Imaging Center, previously Technical Advisor and Principal Research Scientist at the AF Research Lab. He created a new area of cognitive mathematical engineering, dynamic logic, which solved a number of Big Data problems unsolvable for decades. He led research projects on mathematical models of the mind mechanisms, cognitive algorithms for integration of disparate data; interaction between cognition and language, hierarchy of abstract models, predictive and diagnostic models of culture, applications of this models to engineering and military intelligence, data mining, genetic-phenotype correlation studies, cybersecurity, commercial analytics and predictions. In leading brain imaging labs around the world his models have been proven experimentally to explain the mind mechanisms not understood previously. As Chief Scientist at Nichols Research, a $500mm high-tech DOD contractor, he led the corporate research in intelligent systems. He served as professor at Novosibirsk University and New York University; as a principal in commercial startups developing tools for biotechnology, text understanding, and financial predictions. He is invited as a keynote plenary speaker and tutorial lecturer worldwide, including most prestigious venues such as the Nobel Forum at Karolinska Institutet Stockholm; published more than 500 papers, 18 book chapters, and 7 books including “Neural Networks and Intellect,” Oxford University Press, 2001 (currently in the 3rd printing); “Emotional, Cognitive, Neural Algorithms with Engineering Applications,” Springer 2011; "Music: Passions and Cognitive Functions," Elsevier, 2016; awarded 2 patents. Dr. Perlovsky participates in organizing conferences on Computational Intelligence, Chair for the IEEE Task Force on The Mind and Brain, on the International Neural Network Society (INNS) Board of Governors, past Chair for the IEEE Boston Computational Intelligence Chapter; INNS Chair of The Award Committee. He serves on the Editorial Board of ten professional journals, has founded and serves as Editor-in-Chief for “Physics of Life Reviews,” the IF=8.2, ranked #3 in the world by Thomson Reuters among 72 journals in biophysics. He received National and International awards including The Best Paper Award at Russian most prestigious magazine, Zvezda; the Gabor Award, the top engineering award from the INNS; and the John McLucas Award, the highest US Air Force Award for basic research.
