International Neural Network Society Promotes Ham to Fellow
Fred Ham, dean of the College of Engineering and Harris Professor of Electrical Engineering, was promoted to Fellow status by the International Neural Network Society (INNS) Board of Governors. The organization was established in 1987 by leading neural network scientists to advance the theoretical and computational understanding of the brain and to apply that knowledge to develop new and more effective forms of machine intelligence. To date, the premiere organization has more than 2,000 members worldwide.
A member of INNS since 1990, Ham was elevated to senior member in 2008, served as the board’s secretary for two years and was president of the society 2007-2008.
