Success Story: An Indian Researcher Working in the Field of Artificial Intelligence Obtains both NIW and EB1A Approvals with the help of NAILG’s Experts


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you so much for all the efforts and guidance throughout this, it was indeed our pleasure working with such a professional team.”

On April 27th, 2023 and May 31st, 2023, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval and EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Researcher in the Field of Artificial Intelligence (Approval Notice).

General Field: Artificial Intelligence

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Researcher

Country of Origin: India

Country of Residence at the Time of Filing: India

Approval Notice Date: April 27th, 2023 (NIW) and May 31st, 2023 (EB1A)

Processing Time: 2 months, 11 days (NIW) and 29 days (EB1A) (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

A client from India with a Ph.D. in computer application approached us to help her file the I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) and EB1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petitions; we, therefore, employed our team of experts to build a reasonable case for her. We included her professional and academic career details in her petition packet to support her claim to both categories.

However, there are certain requirements to be fulfilled by an individual including but not limited to:

  • The foreign national must be in a position to advance the proposed endeavor.
  • The applicant must present evidence that the U.S. would benefit on balance to waive the job offer criteria for an EB-2.
  • A proposed endeavor, holding substantial merit and national importance.

Therefore, we showcased that along with her academic qualifications:

  • Her business and healthcare artificial intelligence technology research addresses some of our nation’s and the world’s most pressing issues, including fostering protective measures such as contactless services in businesses across the globe, using AI to improve the performance of MRIs in detecting cancer, and ensuring online content is adequately monitored through artificial intelligence text classification.
  • Her strong background in machine learning, deep learning, and data analytics has allowed her research to be particularly original, resulting in her success in fundamentally transforming the commercial efficiency and clinical efficacy of artificial intelligence-driven technology.
  • Due to its evident national importance, the client’s study on a DL model for MRI imaging has been recognized and supported by the CPRIT. This funding serves as clear evidence of the merit of her work in developing state-of-the-art methods for high-accuracy brain tumor MRI imaging, thereby significantly improving cancer diagnostics and prevention.

On the other hand, we highlighted that her academic performance has been responsible for several publications, and citations:

  • Her research has resulted in 62 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 23 book chapters, and 16 books.
  • Her publications have been cited 1,260 times according to Google Scholar in at least 63 countries.
  • She has completed at least 78 peer reviews for at least 4 journals, conference proceedings, and workshops.

Not only this but the recommendations had an excellent review of her work, one (out of four) of which is quoted below:

“When all of this evidence is considered in its totality, [client’s] status as a top figure in the field of artificial intelligence is beyond doubt. However, perhaps the most lasting and significant impact of her work is the practical application it has for mitigating the harm caused by brain cancer in the United States. For the thousands of Americans who are diagnosed with this form of cancer every year, the continuation of [client’s] research is imperative.”

Based on this multifactorial assessment, it is clear that the client’s education, experience, expertise, documented record of success, influence in her field, and plan have altogether well-positioned her in her field of expertise.

We are thus very proud that our client got both her NIW and EB1A approvals. We wish her the very best in her future endeavors. It has been an amazing journey with her.
