Akira Hirose received the Ph.D. degree in electronic engineering from the University of Tokyo in 1991. In 1987, he joined Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology (RCAST), the University of Tokyo, as Research Associate. In 1991, he was appointed Instructor at RCAST. From 1993 to 1995, on leave of absence from the University of Tokyo, he joined the Institute for Neuroinformatics, University of Bonn, Bonn, Germany. He is currently Professor with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Systems, the University of Tokyo. The main fields of his research interests are wireless electronics and neural networks. In the fields, he published several books such as Complex-Valued Neural Networks, 2nd Edition (Springer 2012), Complex-Valued Neural Networks: Theories and Applications, Ed. (World Scientific, 2003) and Complex-Valued Neural Networks: Advances and Applications, Ed. (IEEE Press / Wiley, 2013) and Reservoir Computing, (G.Tanaka, R.Nakane, A.Hirose) (in Japanese) (Morikita Publishing Co. Ltd., 2021).

Previously he served as Founding President of Asia-Pacific Neural Network Society (APNNS) (2016), President of Japanese Neural Network Society (JNNS) (2013-2015), Vice President of the IEICE Electronics Society (ES) (2013-2015), Editor-in-Chief of the IEICE Transactions on Electronics (2011-2012), Associate Editor of journals such as the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON NEURAL NETWORKS (2009-2011), IEEE GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING NEWSLETTER (2009-2012), Chair of the Neurocomputing Technical Group in the IEICE (2009-2010), IEEE GRSS All Japan Chapter Chair (2013-2015), IEEE CIS Tokyo Chapter Chair (2017-2018), and General Chair of IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS) 2019 Yokohama, International Conference on Neural Information Processing (ICONIP) 2016 Kyoto and Asia-Pacific Conference on Synthetic Aperture Radar (APSAR) 2013 in Tsukuba. He currently serves as a member of IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) Neural Networks Technical Committee (NNTC) (2009-), Vice Chair of the NNTC Complex-Valued Neural Network Task Force (2021-) (Chair 2010-2020) and General Chair of IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence (WCCI) 2024 Yokohama.
 Dr. Hirose is a Fellow of the IEEE and IEICE, and a member of JNNS, INNS and APNNS.
