Rudolf Kruse is an Emeritus Professor of Computer Science. From 1996 -2017 he was the leader of the Computational Intelligence Research Group at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Magdeburg, see





Rudolf Kruse was reviewer of the dissertation of M.Sc. Wolfgang Doneit, and he attended the defense at the University of Karlsruhe (KIT).  


Rudolf Kruse was member of the international jury of the BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Awards. The prestigious award in the category Information and Communication Technologies (Price money 400.000 Euro) is given to Goldwasser, Micali, Rivest and Shamir for enabling a secure digital society thanks to modern cryptography


Rudolf Kruse was coorganizer  of the workshop on soft-computing at the HICSS'49 at Hawaii.


Rudolf Kruse is an  IEEE CIS distinguished lecturer for the period 2018-2020.


Rudolf Kruse has been  approved as associate editor for the journals on Fuzzy Sets and Systems, Computer Aided Engineering, Applied Logic, Information sciences, Wiley Interdisciplinary: Reviews on Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery, and  Uncertainty,  Fuzziness and Knowledge-Based System


R. Kruse is Co-Organizer of the CIES Symposium in Honolulu at the IEEE-SSCI 2017 in Honolulu.


R. Kruse gave an invitational talk at the 27. Workshop on Computational Intelligence, Dortmund entitled “ Decomposable Graphical Models in Industrial Applications”.


T.T. Nguyen, doctorate of R. Kruse, received the best poster award at the IEEE Conference on Multisensor Fusion and Integration for Intelligent Systems in Daegu, Korea


R. Kruse is Co Editor of special issue for the Applied Soft Computing  entitled “Applied soft computing for business analytics”.


Prof. Kruse will continue to give lectures on Computational Intelligence for the next two years. In WS 2017/18 he will give a course on Bayes Networks, see the lecture page for more information.He agrees to serve as  supervisor (Bachelor, Master, Ph.D.), and to accept offers as consultant in academia and industry.


Rudolf Kruse received the emeritus status from the University of Magdeburg. On this occasion, a festive event and a symposium on the subject of Computational Intelligence took place. See the Colloquium's webpage for schedule, photos, and documents.


In SS 2018 Rudolf Kruse gives a course on Neural Networks and Deep Learning, Alexander Dockhorn is responsible for the exercises. See the lecture page for more information.
