      N. Popescu-Bodorin received his BSc in Mathematics and Mechanics from the University of Bucharest, and MSc in Geometry, System Theory and Optimization from Politehnica University of Bucharest, Romania. During his MSc he also took a complementary specialization in Programming and Reduced Order Models and a complimentary fellowship as a Research Assistant in Electrical Engineering granted by Politehnica University of Bucharest.
      He finished his PhD in Computer Science under the coordination of PhD. Prof. State Luminita, and is currently working as a lecturer in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science Department of Spiru Haret University where he runs the Artificial Intelligence and Computational Logic Laboratory and teaches Computational Logic, Computer Simulation, and Artificial Intelligence.
      His areas of interest are artificial intelligence, computational logic, modal/fuzzy/crisp/n-valent logics, image processing, biometrics, algorithms, information theory, computability and system theory, etc.

During his PhD study (summarized here),
he introduced:
  • two versions of Circular Fuzzy Iris Segmentation (CFIS, CFIS2),
  • Gabor Analytic Iris Texture Binary Encoder (Hilbert Encoders), DWT-Hilbert Encoder, Haar-Hilbert Encoder, Haar-MultiscaleHilbert Encoder and mixed Log-Gabor & Haar - Multiscale Hilbert Encoder,
and he became the first who:
  • challanged the common belief that the possibility of formulating paradoxically self-reference sentences naturally belongs to semantically closed languages (A. Tarski), by defining Cognitive Binary Logic - a monoaxiomatic, complete, consistent, and self-contained (semantically closed) formalization of the binary logic in which the Liar Paradox was successfully deconstructed,
  • formulated the principle of objectivity in propositional logic,
  • proposed a logical and neural-evolutionary model for Iris Recognition, which is the first neural approach that proves outstanding power of discrimination between inter- and intra-class comparisons,
  • showed that parcticing iris recognition in a logically consistent manner means to recover from iris biometric data the binary fuzzified meaning of two concepts: "genuine" and "imposter" comparisons, and to mimic the correct binary biometric decisions given by a human agent during a Turing Test,
  • introduced the concepts of evolutionary digital identity and logically consistent biometric system and illustrated their utility,
  • introduced the Turing-Zadeh Modeling as a Soft Computing technique for intelligent computational modeling of the physical systems and successfully applied Turing-Zadeh Modeling in Iris Recognition.

      He is currently working on the logic foundations of (Consistent) Biometry and Iris Recognition and on applying advanced intelligence paradigms to Iris Recognition.

    Recently I have decided to take back and remove all my contributions to Matlab Central File Exchange area. Consequently, some links situated below in this section (Research) are now broken and they are going to stay broken until I will host all the externally linked files someplace else where administrator's abusive intervention on the posted content is prohibited by default. Please excuse the inconvenience.
