Dear all,

Like many of you, I was shocked to learn that John passed away. I will be writing an obituary for the next issue of AISB Quaterly, the newsletter for the UK-based AI-related community. Feel free to contact me if you would like to share a remembrance note, a memory, picture and the like.

He will be missed. Our affection goes to his family.

Kind regards,

Etienne

He was appointed Emeritus  Professor of Mathematics of London University in 1996. He was Guest Scientist at the Research Centre in Juelich,  Germany, 1996-8, working on brain imaging and data analysis. He has acted as consultant in Neural Networks to several companies. He is the Director of Research on Global Bond products and Tactical Asset Allocation for a financial investment company involved in time series prediction. He is presently European Editor-in-Chief of the journal Neural Networks and was President of the International Neural Network Society (1995) and the European Neural Network Society (1993/4). Since 2009, he is founding Chair of the Advisory Editorial Board for the  journal Cognitive Computation.
