In addition, Richard Golden is a participating electrical engineering faculty member in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and a faculty member of the Human Language Technology Research Institute.
Richard Golden obtained the Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering and Experimental Psychology from the University of California of San Diego in 1982. He received the Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Brown University in 1986, and Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology from Brown University in 1987. Dr. Golden was an Andrew Mellon Fellow at the University of Pittsburgh from 1987-1988, and an NIH Post-doctoral Scholar at Stanford University from 1988-1990.
Dr. Golden has been a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Mathematical Psychology since 1996. He was a member of the editorial board of Neural Processing Letters from 1999-2004 and a member of the Editorial Board of the journal Neural Networks, from 1995-2006. In addition, Dr. Golden is a member of the Cognitive Science Society, International Artificial Intelligence in Education Society, Society for Text and Discourse, International Neural Network Society, secretary-treasurer of the Society for Mathematical Psychology, and an IEEE (Senior Member) who belongs to the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society
In alternating years, Dr. Golden teaches an introductory artificial neural net course using James A. Anderson's book An Introduction to Neural Networks, Neural Net Math (Spring 2009) and an advanced artificial neural net course sequence (Fall 2009, Spring 2010) based on Dr. Golden's book Mathematical Methods for Neural Network Analysis and Design. Dr. Golden also teaches special courses in the area of Text Comprehension (Spring 2010), and Probabilistic Models of Natural Language Understanding (Spring 2009) . At the undergraduate level, Dr. Golden usually teaches the core undergraduate experimental projects course (PSY3393) where students learn to read and write technical scientific papers.
Dr. Golden, in collaboration with his graduate students, are pursuing on-going research in two major areas. First, research in the area of text comprehension and memory using a new statistical data analysis tool called KDC (Knowledge Digraph Contribution) Analysis. And second, fundamental research in mathematical modeling in the cognitive, social, and behavioral sciences. An important component of this research program is the mathematical analysis and design of nonlinear artificial neural networks.
Dr. Golden is also an advisor for the UTD racquetball club, manages the UT Dallas racquetball ladder UTD racquetball ladder . Highlights from the 2003 Racquetball Corporate Challenge! . Texas Regional and National Tournament Schedule! .
Dr. Golden is also the Behavioral and Brain Sciences Library Representative. To order books for the UTD Library, please click here.
