Ahmad Lotfi received his BSc. and MTech. in control systems from Isfahan University of Technology, Iran and Indian Institute of Technology, India respectively. He received his PhD degree in Learning Fuzzy Systems from University of Queensland, Australia in 1995. He is currently a Reader in Computational Intelligence at School of Science and Technology, Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham, United Kingdom where he is leading the research group in Ambient and Computational Intelligent. He has authored and co-authored over 80 scientic papers in the area of computational intelligent, ambient intelligence and control. His research interest is mainly in the area of computational intelligence, ambient intelligence and natural computing. Specific areas of interest include learning fuzzy systems, neuro-computing, sensors network, adaptive systems, data mining and intelligent mobile robot navigation strategies. He has extensive research in ambient assisted living. The aim of his research is to design an unobtrusive “activities of daily living” monitoring system using wireless sensors to allow identification and prediction of abnormal behaviour. The approach used is to gather data on the routine activities of the elders without altering the elders’ normal behaviour. The work conducted so far is part of a vision in Intelligent Environments where unobtrusive measurements from the environment help the occupant being able to live independently. Dr Lotfi was the organiser and chair of the 7th International Conference on Intelligent Environments held in July 2011 at Nottingham Trent University.
