Honda Research Institute Europe

"Besides researching and developing the most suitable individual software components, successful multi-disciplinary optimization in an industrial context requires a system level analysis of the problem including issues of workflow, interoperability and resource sharing. Professor Bńck is world-wide one of the leading researchers in computational intelligence and his contributions to the development of new algorithms and methods cannot be overestimated. However, from our perspective, it is his unique analytical ability to amalgamate systems engineering with computational intelligence which makes him such a valuable partner for our institute."
