Dr. Alexander Troussov

Dr. Alexander Troussov is Director of the International Research Laboratory for Mathematical Methods for Social Network Mining at the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration. Former Chief Scientist of IBM Dublin Center for Advanced Studies (2000-2013), one of the creators of the major IBM linguistic technology LanguageWare, and leader of IBM team participation in the three year integrated 6th framework EU project NEPOMUK, he has published more than 40 peer reviewed journal and conference papers and has 6 patents.

Dr. Troussov received B.Sc in mathematics and Ph.D in mathematics from Moscow State University, Moscow, Russia, in 1973 and 1984, respectively.

He has more than 30 years of research and development experience including about 10 years of industrial research. He has published more than 30 peer reviewed journal and conference papers in algebra, prediction theory, natural language processing and social networking. He has 6 patents and patent applications. He also worked as a software developer in various roles (software architect, project manager, developer) for about 15 years.

From 1997 to 1999, Alexander Troussov served as Telematics Application Engineer, with the responsibility to lead technical policy, in STACCIS Project “Support for Telematics Applications Cooperation with the Commonwealth of Independent States”, funded by the EC and co-ordinated by UNESCO.

He has been a visiting scientist with CNRS in France and NOAA in USA. In the National Geophysical Data Center, Boulder, CO, USA, he developed a fuzzy classifier for Weather (Environmental) Scenario Generator database, which provides an intelligent search mechanism to locate desired conditions in historical archives and available resources. The project, which is jointly developed by several agencies, was presented at the conference WEBSIM 1999 in San Francisco. As visiting scientist at Observatoire de Nice, France, Dr. Troussov worked on numerical simulation in cosmology, in particular he developed new algorithms for Fast Legendre Transform and for numerical simulation of Burgers’ equation.

From 1990 until 1997, he was Senior Researcher at International Institute for Earthquake Prediction Theory and Mathematical Geophysics, Moscow, Russian Academy of Science. From 1997 until 2003 he was Lead Scientific Researcher at Joint Institute of Physics of the Earth, Russian Academy of Science.

From 1982 until 1990 he was Senior Researcher at Institute of Physics of the Earth, Moscow, Academy of Science. He was involved in development of new methods for pattern recognition and reliability estimation of earthquake prone areas.
