General Field: Artificial Intelligence

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Scientist

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Virginia

Approval Notice Date: February 25th, 2022

Processing Time: 3 months, 25 days

Case Summary:

Our client, a holder of a Ph.D. in engineering management researching natural language processing and optimization to implement solutions for cross-validating extracted information from crowdsources to conduct fact-checking and avoid misinformation from both sensors and social media secured the national interest waiver approval 3 months and 25 days after we filed his case.

When our client engaged the services of the North America Immigration Law Group to help him prepare his EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition, we looked up the standard of proof for petitions filed for NIW cases as per the Matter of Dhanasar. Thus, we started preparing his case by compiling the most relevant, probative, and credible evidence that leads USCIS to believe that the petitioner has satisfied the standard of proof. Therefore, we added the following details to his petition packet:

  • Upon reviewing his education and research background, we submitted his employment letter, confirming his capacity to advance his proposed endeavor in his current position as a research scientist. It was noteworthy to discuss that his research has great substantial merit and national importance to the use of social media for monitoring traffic congestion in urban settings, and for improving navigation and reducing traffic congestion in cities across the United States.
  • In addition, we noted that his research in the field of artificial intelligence has resulted in 6 peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored) and 8 conference papers (6 of them first-authored. His works have accumulated 84 citations by other established researchers in the field around the world, proving his work to be widely recognized and relied upon in the field.
  • Besides, due to his knowledge and expertise in vehicle and drone route planning, recommendation systems, and social media text mining, he has been regularly invited to conduct peer reviews for authoritative journals and conferences in the field, thus he has completed at least 4 reviews to date.

In view of all the submitted evidence, we were very well able to persuade USCIS of our client’s research’s great importance because it has contributed to growing knowledge regarding the use of social media technology for monitoring traffic congestion in urban settings. Therefore, we cordially congratulate him on achieving the NIW approval and wish him the best of luck in this fantastic breakthrough.
