Short Bio

Dr. Erdal Kayacan received a Ph.D. degree in electrical and electronic engineering at Bogazici University, Istanbul, Turkey. After finishing his post-doctoral research at KU Leuven at the division of mechatronics, biostatistics and sensors (MeBioS) in 2014, he worked in Nanyang Technological University at the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering as an assistant professor for four years. Currently, he is pursuing his research in Aarhus University at the Department of Engineering as an associate professor. He is the Director of Artificial Intelligence in Robotics (Air Lab) laboratory.

Dr. Kayacan is co-writer of a course book “Fuzzy Neural Networks for Real Time Control Applications, 1st Edition Concepts, Modeling and Algorithms for Fast Learning“, Butterworth-Heinemann, Print Book ISBN:9780128026878. (17 Sept 2015).

He is a Senior Member of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). From 1st Jan 2017, he is an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems.

Fuzzy Neural Networks for Real Time Control Applications: Concepts, Modeling and Algorithms for Fast Learning
by Erdal Kayacan and Mojtaba Ahmadieh Khanesar
With foreword by Jerry M. Mendel

AN INDISPENSABLE RESOURCE FOR ALL THOSE WHO DESIGN AND IMPLEMENT TYPE-1 AND TYPE-2 FUZZY NEURAL NETWORKS IN REAL TIME SYSTEMS

Delve into the type-2 fuzzy logic systems and become engrossed in the parameter update algorithms for type-1 and type-2 fuzzy neural networks and their stability analysis with this book!

Not only does this book stand apart from others in its focus but also in its application-based presentation style. Prepared in a way that can be easily understood by those who are experienced and inexperienced in this field. Readers can benefit from the computer source codes for both identification and control purposes which are given at the end of the book.
