I am pleased to announce that I have been elevated to the rank of Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Only 8 percent of IEEE members have attained the level of senior member. Senior Membership is an honor bestowed only to those who have made significant contributions to the profession. They are recognised for their technical and professional excellence, achievements, publications and course development or technical direction in IEEE-designated fields. I am particularly active in the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society.
