"I do not want to Teach - I want to Inspire !!!!"

Dear Visitor, Dear Friend,


Thank you for visiting my virtual "house". I am happy to share some of my ideas, experience, pieces of knowledge about professional interests, personal interests  in my life.


I am a happy person - since I am doing for living things what I do like. You can read my Curriculum Vitae and will see my profesional  profile. I am also happy person since I have met many interesting people in my life and they gave me energy and inspire me. I do not want to judge nobody and I have respect in front of every biological systems :). I would be happy if you can discuss some views what I think are important in life together on my blog. Important is to respect different opinions.


This part tries to present ME as a person with professional and personal interests. Professional interests are very important for making a living and I do strongly believe that personal interests are also important to present and provide a global picture about a person. Certainly there is a question why I want to present my views, opinions, interests - answer is easy - because I do believe we should not hide but present our views and attitudes to life, past , present and mainly responsibility for the future. The notion responsibility cannot be understood with people who do not have kids. Only kids in your life give you a true felling of responsibility for the future. So in fact "I do not care about the future" BUT "I do care of my kids"


 With Great Respect - Peter

Past Events

Personal Interests

My general personal interest is how it will look like 20-50 years to come. I think very important is to presenve those part of life which are based on experience - which are wisdoms of people living many years before. I have a deep respect towards Japan and their culture.

Life Wisdom

Some of the examples according to those I try to live on this Globe

What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies.



Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.


Albert Camus

The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.


Bob Marley

Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.


John Lennon

I'm not afraid of death; I just don't want to be there when it happens.


Woody Allen

A single conversation with a wise man is better than ten years of study.


Chinese Proverb

Professional Interests

My General Interest are Intelligent Systems and their role in the future technologies.


My background is in Image processing, pattern recognition mainly statistical Gaussian pattern Recognition in multidimensional Feature space. Neural networks thanks to my friend prof. Leslie Smith from University Stirling, Scotland where I have spent 3 month living with neural networks :)) . I have been inspired with prof. Laszlo Koczy, prof. Imre Rudas (, prof. Kaoru Hirota (Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan) towards Fuzzy Systems, by prof. H. Takagi Towards Evolutionary Systems

Cloud Robotics

and the concept of Distributed Intelligence.


Tools of Computational Intelligence for prediction systems, multimodular prediction systems, various application in real-world related to prediction problems .

Cognitive science

and biologicaly motivovated systems (artificial evolution, artificial life, artificial neural networks)

Intelligent control

related to autonomous systems, multimodular & multiagent approaches based on computational intelligent tools for behevioral control.


Pattern Recognition

including Classification procedures in the feature space. Neural, fuzzy and hybrid - like classifiers. Artmap, Fuzzy Artmap and related classifiers.


The idea of MF-Artmap for classification purposes was developed in our lab.

Intelligent buildings

and the concept of Intelligent Space
