  Bernadette Bouchon-Meunier is a director of research emeritus at the National Center for Scientific Research. She was the head of the department of Databases and Machine Learning (DAPA), as well as the head of the research group Machine Learning and Information Retrieval (MALIRE) of DAPA in the Computer Science Laboratory of the University Paris 6 (LIP6) until 2013. Since 2014, she has been a member of the research group Learning, Fuzzy and Intelligent Systems (LFI) in the Department of Artificial Intelligence ans Data Sciences, as well as a member of the Sorbonne Center for Artificial Intelligence.

  Graduate from the Ecole Normale Superieure at Cachan, she received the degrees of B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science, Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics and D. Sc. in Computer Science from the University of Pierre and Marie Curie.

  Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Uncertainty, Fuzziness and Knowledge-based Systems (World Scientific), she is also a member of the editorial board of the International Journal of Approximate Reasoning, Fuzzy Sets and Systems, Journal of Uncertain Systems.

  She is the (co)-editor of thirty-two books and the (co)-author of five books in French and one in vietnamese on Fuzzy Logic and Uncertainty Management in Artificial Intelligence. She is a co-founder and co-executive director of the International Conference on Information Processing and Management of Uncertainty in Knowledge-based Systems (IPMU) held every other year since 1986.

  She has been an elected member of the Administrative Committee of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (IEEE CIS) from 2004 to 2009 and from 2011 to 2014,  a member of the IEEE Women in Engineering committee in 2007-2008 and from 2012 to 2014. She is presently the vice-president of the IEEE French Chapter on Computational Intelligence. She  was the chair of the IEEE Women in Computational Intelligence Committee from 2004 to 2007. She was elected Vice-president for Conferences of the IEEE CIS (2014-2018), Vice-president for chapters of the IEEE France Section (2014-2019) and she was the President of the IEEE CIS in 2020-2021.

    She is an IEEE Life Fellow, an International Fuzzy Systems Association fellow, an Honorary Member of the European Association  for Fuzzy Logic and Technology (EUSFLAT) and  a fellow of the Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association (AAIA). She was appointed as Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE CIS for the period  2014-2016. She received the 2012 IEEE Computational Intelligence Society Meritorious Service Award, the 2017 EUSFLAT Scientific Excellence Award, the 2018 IEEE Computational Intelligence Society Fuzzy Systems Pioneer Award, the 2019 Outstanding Volunteer Award of the IEEE France Section and the IEEE 2024 Frank Rosenblatt award.

  Her present research interests include approximate and similarity-based reasoning, as well as the application of fuzzy logic and machine learning techniques to decision-making, data mining, risk forecasting, information retrieval, user modelling, sensorial and emotional information processing, management of information quality and eXplainable Artificial Intelligence.
