Harry Wechsler received the Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Irvine, in 1975, and he is presently Professor of Computer Science at George Mason University. His research in the areas of Computer Vision and Neural Networks (NN) includes multistrategy learning (statistics, adaptive signal processing, information theory, genetic algorithms, machine learning, and neural networks), scale-space and joint (Gabor and wavelets) image representations, attention, functional and selective perception, face recognition, and object recognition. He was Director for NATO Advanced Study Institutes on Active Perception and Robot Vision (Maratea, Italy, 1989) and on From Statistics to Neural Networks(Les Arcs, France, 1993) and he will serve as the co-Chair for the International Conference on Pattern Recognition to be held in Vienna, Austria, in 1996. He authored over 150 scientific papers, his book Computational Vision was published by Academic Press in 1990, and he is the editor of the book, Neural Networks for Perception (Vol 1 & 2), published by Academic Press in 1991. He was elected as an IEEE Fellow in 1992.
