Case Summary:

The EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) visa is for those select individuals of foreign origin who are extraordinarily talented or gifted in a certain area of interest such as science, arts, business, etc. So when we received a request for an EB1-A case from a leading machine learning, natural language processing, multivariate analysis, and statistical data analysis expert in artificial intelligence, we made sure to help him the best we knew how. Our brilliant team began digging into his academic and professional documents and collected several relevant points to use in his petition. Some of these were as follows:

  • The client has achieved a consistent and notable record of success and influence in the chosen area of study. He is especially well-known for his research on the comprehensive impact of COVID-19 on minorities and stroke patients.
  • The field has recognized his authority by inviting him to review and evaluate the work of his peers no fewer than 18 times. Among the journals and conferences that have sought out his expertise and insight are several well-known scientific organizations of repute from across the world.
  • To confirm the elite level of accomplishment demonstrated by our client, his work has been extensively recognized by independent scholars, and all of his 4 recommenders are internationally renowned experts in the field, belonging to elite institutions.
  • Our client’s work has resulted in 14 peer-reviewed scientific articles. Moreover, these papers have been published in some of the most discerning, high-impact journals in his field.
  • Additionally, his overall work related to the improvement of stroke risk prediction, machine learning in healthcare, and our understanding of the impact of COVID-19 has been cited 550 times by peers in at least 41 countries using his prior findings to make additional discoveries related to machine learning, the full impact of COVID-19, etc.
  • Due to its clear implications for addressing the overwhelming threat of cardiovascular and stroke events to human health, his research has already attracted the attention of the private sector as well.
  • Working with 99 health centers in 17 countries, as well as 369 U.S. counties, our client collected structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data on patients infected with COVID-19. Because of the variety and complexity of this data, he developed a series of algorithms that blended and cleansed the data, ensuring that only accurate studies were included and that all of the information was summarized under a unified coding standard.
  • At the same time, his work has been supported by funding from Genentech and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.
    Along with these pieces of facts, we also quoted from the 4 letters of recommendation he had received from other experts. Some of these have the following statements about his work:

“[The client] is proficient in some of the field’s most elusive areas. His construction of complex algorithms that are easy to use provides a great service to healthcare professionals that require large amounts of data to be analyzed in a clean and easily readable manner. The artificial intelligence field would be at a clear disadvantage should he not be able to continue his research. I thus highly recommend that he be allowed to remain in the country.”

“Beyond its scholarly relevance, the implementation of AI into the healthcare system has innumerable advantages. Indeed, AI can aid in making clinical decisions, and diagnoses and improve the quality of care according to individual needs and conditions. This radically helps treat patients who suffer from sepsis, which, in the United States, amounts to more than 1.7 million adults a year. Most strikingly, 270,000 of this total number of sepsis-affected patients die yearly. [The client] directly contributes to curbing this number. [The client] is a valuable part of the United States scientific community.”

So, when his approval came through, we were proud of having helped him through. We wish him all the best for his future.
