George Burgin Honored with Lifetime Achievement Award

Natural Selection, Inc. is pleased to announce that Dr. George Burgin will be receiving a lifetime achievement award from the AIAA San Diego Section for his pioneering efforts over multiple decades using evolutionary computation for aerospace applications. Working with Dr. Lawrence Fogel (my dad) and under funding from NASA Langley, Burgin succeeded in programming the “Adaptive Maneuvering Logic” that was used for air-to-air combat flight training in the 1970s-1980s. Burgin also demonstrated the value of evolutionary computation in the control logic of supersonic aircraft. Already recognized by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society for his pioneering efforts in evolutionary algorithms and games, I’m thrilled to see him also receive recognition for his many efforts to bring machine learning to aerospace!
