About Me

Short Biography

Behnam Rahnama received PhD (2010) and MSc (2005) in Computer Engineering at Eastern Mediterranean University and his BSc degree - in Computer Software Engineering - (2003) at Shiraz Azad University of Iran. He has published various papers, book chapters and couple of books in the fields of Intelligent Systems, Robotics, Semantic Web Services, Data Structure, and Security (more than 55 publications). His research interests include Distributed Collaborative Autonomous Semantic Robotic Systems, Semantic Reasoning, and Semantic Intelligence, Efficient Hierarchical Schemas for RDBMS, Security and Cryptography, Embedded OS/Hardware for Robotics and partially solving and parallelization of ultra-dense linear matrices on GPGPU based supercomputers. He is reviewer of many international journals and refereed conferences in addition to co-chairing COMPSAC-MEDIS, SINCONF, IJRCS, and biannual EEECS symposiums. Within last recent years, he has been actively working on startup companies, running and participating incubation centers in both US and Iran. Working as a Senior Software Engineer at ScaleDB Inc. in US and Founding Medis Holding as the foremost Innovation Center in Iran, in addition to receiving full professorship degree in less than 7 years after PhD, and designing the planet most powerful exascale supercomputer with more than 2 exaflops of computational power are some of major examples of such enthusiasm.

It’s been ages now, the AI has not been as promising as it’s been supposed to be. The Close World Assumption is the cause of such imperfection where absence of deduced information contradicts the query’s estimation. Semantic Intelligence (SI), instead of classical AI, powers Semantic Robotics. The next generations of robots will be context-aware agents able to collaborate in team work. They will be communicating with all other robots no matter what language they speak.


Inspiring Notes

"There should be no boundaries to human endeavor. We are all different. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there's life, there is hope." The Theory of Everything

"Most people live life on the path we set for them. Too afraid to explore any other. But once in a while people like you come along and knock down all the obstacles we put in your way. People who realize free will is a gift that you'll never know how to use until you fight for it." The Adjustment Bureau

"Don't ever let someone tell you you can't do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you got to protect it. People can't do something themselves, they want to tell you you can't do it. You want something, go get it. Period. All right?" The Pursuit of Happiness

"Courage is a hard thing to figure. You can have courage based on a dumb idea or mistake, but you're not supposed to question adults, or your coach, or your teacher, because they make the rules. Maybe they know best, but maybe they don't. It all depends on who you are, where you come from. Didn't at least one of the 600 guys think about giving up, and joining with the other side? I mean, valley of death that's pretty salty stuff. That's why courage it's tricky." The Blind Side

"What is the most resilient parasite? Bacteria? A virus? An intestinal worm? An idea. Resilient... highly contagious. Once an idea has taken hold of the brain it's almost impossible to eradicate. An idea that is fully formed--fully understood--that sticks." Inception

"The main thing is: Pay attention, pay attention to everything, everything you see. Notice what no one else notices, and you'll see what no one else knows. What you get is what you get, what you do with what you get, that's more the point." City of Ember
