The Academician Expert Workstation of Xi’an Guilong Digital Engineering Science & Technology Co., LTD Approved and Recognized by CPC Xi’an Commission as 2019 Xi 'an Academician Workstation

On 8 January of 2020, The official document from organization department of Xi’an Commission of The Communist Party of China (CPC) and Xi’an Association for Science and Technology shows that Xi’an Guilong Digital Engineering Science & Technology Co., LTD is allowed to establish the academician workstation for Jacek M. Zurada which is the foreign member of the Polish Academy of Sciences, the documents entitled with Notification on Recognition of Xi 'an Academician Workstation in 2019 and numbered [2019]196.

Xi’an Guilong Digital Engineering Science & Technology co., LTD., founded in October 2006, is a high-tech enterprise, which specializing in digital product research and development as well as implementing digital oilfield construction and digitization development for other industries. One integrated company of service and products with innovation and promotion, business scopes include project planning, business consulting, engineering construction, installation, maintenance and support. Rely on Digital Oilfield Institute of Chang' an University, Xi’an Guilong insists the integration operation model of industry, learning, research, enterprises, zone and institute. The advanced technologies, products and solutions on digital, information, intelligent are focused with more than 10 patents for new product and new technology and independent intellectual property rights, and also won "Double hundred" engineering enterprise reward on integration of informationization and industrialization in Shaanxi Province, became Oilfield IoT Demonstration Project Key Enterprise of Shaanxi and National Level High-tech Enterprise as well.

Jacek M. Zurada received his MS and PhD degrees (with distinction) in electrical engineering from the Technical University of Gdansk, Poland. His 2-years post-doctoral training was with Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich, Switzerland. Since 1989 he has been a Professor with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Louisville, Kentucky. He has published over 420 journal and conference papers in neural networks, deep learning, computational intelligence, data mining, image processing and VLSI circuits. He also has authored or co-authored three books, including the pioneering text Introduction to Artificial Neural Systems, co-edited the volumes Computational Intelligence: Imitating Life, Knowledge-Based Neurocomputing, and co-edited twenty volumes in Springer Lecture Notes on Computer Science. He has held visiting appointments at Princeton, Northeastern, Auburn, and at foreign universities in Australia, Chile, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Poland, Singapore, Spain, South Africa and Taiwan. His work has been cited 11,700 times (4/2018, Google Scholar). In addition to his pioneering neural networks textbook, his most recognized achievements include extension of complex-valued neurons to associative memories and percepton networks; sensitivity concepts applied to multilayer neural networks; application of networks to clustering, biomedical image classification and drug dosing; blind sources separation; and rule extraction as a tool for prediction of protein secondary structure. His other contributions include "lambda" learning rule of perceptron and invention of a switching hysteresis phenomena of NMOS and CMOS logic gates. His honors include the 1993 Presidential Award for Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity, 1997 Polish Ministry of National Education Award, 1999 IEEE Circuits and Systems Society Golden Jubilee Medal, and the 2001 Presidential Distinguished Service Award for Service to the Profession. He is a Distinguished Speaker of IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernytics Sociaty and IEEE Life Fellow. In 2003 he was conferred the Title of National Professor by the President of Poland. In 2004, 2006, 2010, and 2012 respectively, he received Honorary Professorships from Hebei University, from the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Chengdu, Sichuan University, Chengdu, and from the Chinese University of Petroleum in Qingdao, all in China. In 2015, he received an Honorary Professor title from Obuda university, Budapest, Hungary. Since 2005 he is a Foreign Member of the Polish Academy of Sciences, and served as a Senior Fulbright Specialist in 2006-12. Dr. Jacek M. Zurada is candidate for 2019 President-Elect (2020 IEEE President).

Xi’an Guilong Academician Workstation will play a role of demonstration and leading through the cooperating with Prof.Jacek M. Zurada and his team, focus on big data, artificial intelligent, especially high-end intelligent computing. The business scopes included making the programs, setting the goals, making the plans and identifying the research topics, such as work together to solve technical problems and major breakthroughs in intelligent oil and gas fields, jointly research and development the newly and highly technologies with products on intelligent brain and oil recovery, supply the theory and principle supporting to the construction of DOF (digital oil field), i-field (Intelligent field) and WOG (wisdom oil field), unceasingly enhance our career’s ability to serve Belt and Road Wisdom Oil and Gas Field Construction as well as contributing China solutions to emerges the Chinese collaboration wisdom in unmanned oil and gas construction. Moreover, jointly cultivate the sought-after few talents on big data, artificial intelligent, intelligent computing for wisdom oil industry via this workstation and redouble our efforts to buildup the top-ranking workstation.
