AI/Machine Learning Expert

Robert J. “Bob” Marks II, PhD, is a Distinguished Professor of Engineering in the Department of Engineering and Computer Science at Baylor University. He is a Life Fellow of the IEEE as well as the Director and a Senior Fellow of the Walter Bradley Center for Natural and Artificial Intelligence. At Baylor University, he is the Faculty Advisor for the Ratio Christi and American Scientific Affiliation student chapters.

Bob has the authored/coauthored Neural Smithing: Supervised Learning in Feedforward Artificial Neural Networks (MIT Press), Handbook of Fourier Analysis and Its Applications (Oxford University Press), Introduction to Shannon Sampling and Interpolation Theory (Springer-Verlag), and Introduction to Evolutionary Informatics (World Scientific).

Bob is an American electrical engineer. His contributions include the Zhao-Atlas-Marks (ZAM) time-frequency distribution in the field of signal processing, the Cheung-Marks theorem in Shannon sampling theory, and the Papoulis-Marks-Cheung (PMC) approach in multidimensional sampling. He was instrumental in the defining of the field of computational intelligence and co-edited the first book using the term “computational intelligence” in the title.

Bob was attracted to Baylor University after 26 years at the University of Washington in Seattle by Baylor’s vision of being the home of cutting-edge research while celebrating the Lordship of Christ.
