Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you so much! I’ll definitely recommend your firm to my colleagues, many of whom are willing to go to the US after graduation.”

On September 27th, 2023, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Research Scientist in the Field of Artificial Intelligence (Approval Notice).

General Field: Artificial Intelligence

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Scientist

Country of Origin: South Korea

Country of Residence at the Time of Filing: South Korea

Approval Notice Date: September 27th, 2023

Processing Time: 5 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

According to the “National Interest Waiver” provision for EB-2, an individual must meet the following requirements:

  • They should have a proposed endeavor that holds substantial merit and national importance.
  • The foreign national must be in a position to advance the proposed endeavor.
  • The applicant must present evidence that the U.S. would benefit overall by waiving the job offer criteria for an EB-2.

Therefore, when our foreign client, holding an M.S. degree in computer science and engineering and working as a research scientist in the field of artificial intelligence, approached North America Immigration Law Group to help him obtain NIW approval, we prepared a well-drafted petition packet containing information regarding his proposed project, impressive record of publications and citations, peer review experience, etc.

  • Initially, we specified that his research is on developing AI architecture and learning frameworks for continual learning to make AI agents easily acquire new skills and retain the memory of previous interactions with users.
  • His work resulted in 4 peer-reviewed conference articles that have been cited a total of 287 times according to Google Scholar.
  • Besides, we highlighted that based on this background, our client plans to pursue a position with a reputable AI employer. He aims to continue his research in refining language models and advancing AI capabilities in tasks such as multimodal generation and specialized AI applications.
  • In addition, our client has also been invited to conduct peer reviews for authoritative conferences in the field due to his knowledge and expertise. He has already completed at least 36 reviews to date. Therefore, it is evident that our client is seen as very knowledgeable in the field and an expert in topics related to his proposed endeavor.

Furthermore, it is worth noting that his research has been financially supported by SK Telecom, Ltd., LG AI Research, and Samsung Electronics. Overall, his work provides proof that he has already achieved significant progress in his overarching goal of improving frameworks for continuous learning.

Thus, we deduced that his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it helps the global community in adapting to the need for continually increasing information processing. His study encompasses utility, impact, and economic advantages that align with the nation’s strategic goals, industry innovation, and healthcare imperatives.

Therefore, we are delighted that we were able to convey the national importance of our client’s research on continual learning to USCIS, who granted our client his NIW petition approval just 5 days after we submitted his case. We would like to express our gratitude to the USCIS Premium Processing Service for the expedited result and sincerely thank our client for choosing our law firm. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
