Guest Researcher    


Milad Janalipour received the M.Sc. degree in geodesy & geomatics engineering from K.N.Toosi University of Technology, Tehran-Iran, in 2013. He is currently working toward the Ph.D. degree in the Department of Geomatics, Faculty of Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering, K.N. Toosi University of Technology. His professional interests include remote sensing image processing, building damage detection & assessment, change detection, computational intelligence algorithms, computing methods, LiDAR data processing and SAR data processing. He has over 3 published conference papers and 7 published journal papers (Persian and English).

Here, Milad shares names of four books that he finds useful:

1) If you would like to learn the concept and theory of Neural networks, he recommends: Neural Network Design - Martin Hagan - Oklahoma State University

2) For fuzzy systems:

Jang, Jyh-Shing Roger, Chuen-Tsai Sun, and Eiji Mizutani. "Neuro-fuzzy and soft computing, a computational approach to learning and machine intelligence." (1997).

3) For general and useful sciences about RS, sensors, applications Link >>

4) For researchers who would like to study about pattern recognition, he recommends this reference.


Great thanks to Milad for his valuable contribution.

Contact Beril to have original artwork for reasonable prices.
At the moment, a part of the income is spent for the new painting supplies and for supporting animal rescue shelters. Donation indications are shared with you when you purchase a painting. 
Within coming years, Beril's vision is to build a larger area where she (and other volunteer friends with professionals) can accommodate larger numbers of animals who need love and health care more urgently than others. When you buy Beril's books and artwork, you are contributing to this vision to become real faster.
