Case Summary:

An expert in the field of computer science, with a proposed endeavor to design and train machine learning and computer vision models to develop novel methodologies and algorithms in order to improve the performance of artificial intelligence, came to our firm seeking help with her NIW or National Interest Waiver petition. It was clear to our team immediately that her research is of great importance because it contributes valuable insights regarding the application of AI in numerous industries as well as improving data management and retrieval. Thus, while preparing her petition packet we used the above information along with supporting documents and facts to show how valuable her work has been to the United States. These supportive facts run as follows:

  • The client has completed at least 17 reviews to date. Given that only the most highly esteemed researchers in the field are invited to evaluate the work of their peers, especially in notable venues like these, it is clear that she is seen as very knowledgeable in the field.
  • Her work in the field has resulted in 7 peer-reviewed journal articles (1 of them first-authored, 1 of them co-first-authored), and 13 conference papers (5 of them first-authored, 1 of them co-first-authored).
  • These publications have been cited a massive total of 1,404 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of computer science.
  • Finally, evidence of her major funding sources namely the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency [DARPA], the Department of Interior/Interior Business Center [DOI/IBC], and the National Science Foundation [NSF].
  • These facts were corroborated by 2 letters of recommendation one coming each from dependent and independent scholars in the field.

We are glad to have had this opportunity to help her in her journey to NIW approval. We thank her for the trust she placed in us and wish her the very best in all future endeavors.
