Ryszard Stanisław Michalski (1937 - September 20, 2007),
a Polish American computer scientist and pioneer in machine learning. While working at the Polish Academy of Sciences in the 60s, Michalski devised an early computer system that could recognize handwriting. After coming to the United States in 1970, working and teaching at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and from 1988 at George Mason University, where he founded the Machine Learning Laboratory [1], he created applications in which computers could execute a form of reasoning, drawing conclusions from information supplied to them. In 1997, he developed an influential computational system he called the Learnable Evolution Model.

Ryszard Michalski died September 20, 2007 of cancer, aged 70 [2] [3] .
