Systems, Man & Cybernetics - July 2016 - 18

my wishes are for the health and
happiness of my family.
SMC Magazine: What worries keep
you up at night?
Dotoli: My anxiety is, of course,
related to the future of my kids.

I would like them to be two inde-
pendent and strong women who
will be able to take their future
into their own hands. Besides pro-
viding my support and that of my
husband, I am encouraging them
to study, learn languages, travel,

Prof. Goldgof, Member
of the SMC Board
of Governors

D

mitry B. Goldgof is an edu-
cator and scientist working
in the area of medical image
analysis, image and video process-
ing, computer vision and pattern
recognition, ethics and computing,
bioinformatics, and bioengineering.
He is currently a professor in the
Department of Computer Science
and Engineering at the University of
South Florida (USF) in Tampa, pro-
fessor in the Department of Onco-
logical Sciences, USF Health, and a
member of the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer
Center and Research Institute.
Previously, Goldgof held visiting
positions at the Department of Com-
puter Science at the University of Cali-
fornia at Santa Barbara, the Depart-
ment of Computer Science at the Uni-
versity of Bern in Switzerland, and
the Moffitt Cancer Center. Goldgof is
proud to have graduated 24 Ph.D. and
43 M.S. students. In 2008, he was hon-
ored by the USF Theodore and Ven-
ette Askounes-Ashford Distinguished
Scholar Award. Prior to his academic
career, he worked as a systems engi-
neer and developer of early computer
graphics software.
He is well known in the field of
computer science and engineering,

especially in the research areas of
biomedical image analysis, comput-
er vision, and associated biomedical
applications. His contributions are
many, including five edited volumes,
20 book chapters, and over 85 jour-
nal articles and numerous confer-
ence publications. The impact of
Goldgof's research is evidenced by
the large number of citations of indi-
vidual papers and an h-index of 44.
Goldgof has contributed broadly
and internationally to the field for
many years, and in 2007, his contri-
butions were acknowledged by his
selection as IEEE Fellow "for con-
tributions to computer vision and
biomedical applications" and then
also in 2010 by the selection as Fel-
low of the International Associa-
tion of Pattern Recognition "for
contributions to computer vision,
pattern recognition, and biomedi-
cal engineering."
His specific research contribu-
tions lie in two broad categories.
The first is in the area of biomedical
image analysis and machine learn-
ing with application in magnetic res-
onance imaging, computed tomogra-
p h y, a n d m i c r o s c o p y i m a g e s ,
radiomics, and bioinformatics. The
second is the area of motion analy-
sis, including biometrics, face analy-
sis and surveillance applications.

play musical instruments, prac-
tice sports, be exposed to art,
and, in general, have a passion
for life. I must admit I am not hav-
ing a difficult time, though, since
in this aspect they are definitely
true Italians!

Additional interests include high-
performance issues of image analy-
sis and machine learning algorithms
and their performance evaluation.
Goldgof's contributions to the
profession include outstanding pro-
fessional service. He is a member of
the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cyber-
netics Society (SMCS), the IEEE
Computer Society, and the IEEE
Engineering in Medicine and Biology
Society. He is serving on the IEEE
Press editorial board (2012-2014,
2015-2017) and as an associate edi-
tor for IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics. He is a member of the SMC
Board of Governors (2007, 2010-
2011, and 2015-2017) and was chosen
as a member of the IEEE Computer
Society and SMCS Fellows Evalua-
tion Committees (2008-2009, 2011-
2016). Goldgof has served as an IEEE
Computer Society Distinguished Visi-
tor (2004-2006) and as an associate
editor for IEEE Transactions on
Image Processing (1996-1998).
He is also active outside IEEE,
serving as an associate editor for the
International Journal of Pattern
Recognition and Artificial Intelligence (2008-present), North Ameri-
can editor for the Image and Vision
Computing journal (1998-2007), and
associate editor for the Journal of
Pattern Recognition (1990-2001).
Goldgof is active within the U.S.
National Institutes of Health Quantita-
tive Imaging Network. He has served
as cochair of the Image Analysis and
Performance Metrics Working Group
and its subgroups (2011-2013) and on
the Radiological Society of North
America Quantitative Imaging Bio-
markers Alliance (2012-2013).
