Case Summary:

A software designer and researcher from China hired us to help him in constructing an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. Our client with a Ph.D. in computer science exhibited solid skills in the same field. Considering his great experience, our able team filed a convincing petition on his behalf. Our objective was to prove his research related to machine learning frameworks is relevant to cleaning data records, detecting fraud and money laundering, refining disease diagnosis, and facilitating law enforcement, antiterrorism, healthcare, finance, and transportation. Therefore, we supplemented more details in his petition packet:

Essentially, we discussed his research on designing new learning frameworks with human-in-the-loop techniques to help deep learning methods learn high-quality models in low-resource settings where little or no human-annotated data is available. It seems to be of great importance because it substantially improves the efficiency with which researchers can solve real-world problems by automatically or semi-automatically generating high-quality, annotated data with less time and money spent.

Also, we noted the 91 citations gathered from the 17 peer-reviewed journal and conference articles (7 of them first-authored) he published in the distinguishing journals, confirming his publications are widely analyzed and relied upon. Besides, we specified his record of peer review work, which is another indication that he is seen as the topmost expert in his field. He has completed 9 peer reviews for several journals and conferences. He is not only a dependable authority whose knowledge and experience are competent in the evaluation of the work of other experts but is also explored by internationally heading journals and conferences to draw on his critical opinion.

Our client’s focus on supplementing data-hungry deep learning-based models is actively benefiting the United States by providing means of better-utilizing data in the national interest, corroborated by 5 independent advisors. One of them opinionated:

“In recent years, many businesses within the United States have begun implementing this type of model to ensure the success of their businesses… For this collaboration to succeed, employees around the country must be able to access the same data from a multitude of sources, making [client’s] research invaluable to this endeavor. Thus, his ongoing work is of vast importance to many different industries and economic endeavors in the United States.”

Another instance added to our law firm’s success record of approvals as our client’s NIW petition secured approval within 8 months, moving him one more step closer to the green card process. We thank him for choosing North America Immigration Law Group for his I-140 case. Also, we congratulate him for furthering his innovations, making his work beneficial to the United States and many of its interests.
