The big synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data era of earth observation depends more and more on deep learning and other data mining technologies. Since SAR data is coherent, differently from incoherent optical data, the use of complex-valued and/or quaternion neural networks is significantly important for successful applications. We will discuss the essence of neural information processing as well as the complex-valued/quaternion neural networks for topographic and vegetation/land-use discovery in the SAR data structurization.
Akira Hirose received the Ph.D. degree in electronic engineering from the University of Tokyo in 1991. In 1987, he joined Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology (RCAST), the University of Tokyo, as Research Associate. In 1991, he was appointed as Instructor at RCAST. From 1993 to 1995, on leave of absence from the University of Tokyo, he joined the Institute for Neuroinformatics, University of Bonn, Bonn, Germany. He is currently Professor with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Systems, the University of Tokyo. The main fields of his research interests are wireless electronics and neural networks. In the fields, he published several books such as Complex-Valued Neural Networks, 2nd Edition (Springer 2012).
He served as the Founding President of Asia-Pacific Neural Network Society (APNNS) (2016), President of Japanese Neural Network Society (JNNS) (2013-2015), Vice President of the IEICE Electronics Society (ES) (2013-2015), Editor-in-Chief of the IEICE Transactions on Electronics (2011-2012), Associate Editor of journals such as the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON NEURAL NETWORKS (2009-2011), IEEE GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING NEWSLETTER (2009-2012), Chair of the Neurocomputing Technical Group in the IEICE, Founding Chair of the IEEE CIS NNTC Complex-Valued Neural Network Task Force (2010-), Governing Board Member of APNNA/APNNS (2006-), IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS) All Japan Chapter Chair (2013-2015) and IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) All Japan Chapter Chair (2017-2018). He also served as the General Chair of Asia-Pacific Conference on Synthetic Aperture Radar (APSAR) 2013 Tsukuba, International Conference on Neural Information Processing (ICONIP) 2016 Kyoto, and International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS) 2019 Yokohama.
Dr. Hirose is a Fellow of the IEEE and the IEICE, and a member of JNNS and APNNS.
