About Lotfali Askar-Zadeh
Lotfali Askar-Zadeh (Azerbaijani: Lütfəli Əsgərzadə, Persian: لطفعلی‌عسکرزاده, born February 4, 1921), better known as Lotfi A. Zadeh, is a mathematician and computer scientist, and a professor of computer science at the University of California, Berkeley.Biography He was born in Baku, Azerbaijan SSR, to a Russian Jewish mother (Fanya Koriman) who was a pediatrician, and an Iranian Azeri father from Ardabil who was a journalist on assignment from Iran. However, at the age of ten, when Joseph Stalin introduced collectivization of farms throughout the Soviet Union, the Zadeh family moved to Iran, his father's homeland. Zadeh grew up in Iran, and studied at Alborz High School. After high school, he sat for the national university exams and placed second in the entire country. In 1942, he graduated from the University of Tehran with a degree in electrical engineering (Fanni), and moved to the United States in 1944. He received an MS degree in electrical engineering from MIT in 1946, and a PhD in electrical engineering from Columbia University in 1949. Zadeh taught for ten years at Columbia University, was promoted to Full Professor in 1957, and has taught at the University of California, Berkeley since 1959. He published his seminal work on fuzzy sets in 1965 in which he detailed the mathematics of fuzzy set theory. In 1973 he proposed his theory of fuzzy logic. Zadeh is noted to be "quick to shrug off nationalism, insisting there are much deeper issues in life", where he himself is quoted stating: "The question really isn't whether I'm American, Russian, Iranian, Azarbaijani, or anything else. I've been shaped by all these people and cultures and I feel quite comfortable among all of them." Zadeh also notes in the same interview from which the above quote is taken: "Obstinacy and tenacity. Not being afraid to get embroiled in controversy. That's very much a Turkish tradition. That's part of my character, too. I can be very stubborn. That's probably been beneficial for the development of Fuzzy Logic." Zadeh is married to Fay Zadeh and has two children, Stella Zadeh and Norman Zadeh.
