Professor Lotfi A. Zadeh

Dear Colleagues

We are deeply saddened to share the sad news that Professor Lotfi A. Zadeh (Keynote Speaker in many WSEAS Conferences) passed away on Sept. 6, 2017 at the age of 97.
Prof. Zadeh has been our Honorary Chair in all the WSEAS Conferences related to artificial intelligence and soft computing, as well as Keynote Speaker four times in our WSEAS conferences in Athens (1999), Miami (2003), Lisbon (2005), Cambridge, UK (2008).

Plenary lecture "From Search Engines to Question Answering Systems - The Problems of World Knowledge, Relevance and Deduction" of Professor Zadeh in our conference in Lisbon 2005 can be downloaded here: http://www.worldses.org/plenary/2005/lisbon/zadeh-2005.pdf

His vision has guided us to build the Cognitive Informatics and Cognitive Computing Community and related research in the last 16 years.
Prof. Zadeh was a giant scientist of the world.
His seminal work in logic, fuzzy mathematics, and soft computing, etc., have and will influence many generations of researchers and students.
We will remember his pioneer contributions to knowledge forever.
He was best known for proposing the fuzzy mathematics consisting of those fuzzy-related concepts:
fuzzy sets, fuzzy logic, fuzzy algorithms, fuzzy semantics, fuzzy languages, fuzzy control, fuzzy systems, fuzzy probabilities, fuzzy events, and fuzzy information.
Rest in peace, dear Professor Zadeh

With our best regards,

Nikos Mastorakis
President of WSEAS

4. From: http://www.worldses.org/feedback2009.txt

Dear Prof. Mastorakis

I would like to express my deep appreciation to you and WSEAS people
who sent me messages or called to express their sympathy.
It was, in all, a difficult experience but there are many others
whose experiences were much more difficult than mine.

Just a quick note to let you know that after spending some time at a
rehabilitation center and recuperating at home, I returned to work on Monday, February 23, 2009.
So far, so good.


Warm regards to all,

Sincerely,

Lotfi

Dear Olga,

Thank you for your message. As the title of my presentation, I
