New FIT professor Jan Černocký appointed by the President
On Wednesday, President Miloš Zeman appointed new professors based on the proposals of university scientific and artistic boards. Jan Černocký, head of the Department of Computer Graphics and Multimedia at the Faculty of Information Technology is among the eighty newly appointed professors. In 1997 he founded the now highly successful BUT Speech@FIT research group and continues to serve as its Executive Director. His research focuses on artificial intelligence, signal processing and speech data mining. He is also an active populariser of his field and a well-known science communicator.
The President's decision must still be co-signed by the Prime Minister, and the appointment decrees will then be handed over to the new professors by the Minister of Education.
