Case Summary:

Holder of a Ph.D. in computer engineering, undoubtedly, our client possesses the capability to advance in the field of artificial intelligence (AI). When she hired our law firm (North America Immigration Law Group) to file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on her behalf, we further discussed her degrees and other achievements in her chosen field. After thoroughly evaluating her credentials, we established that we would lead her to NIW success and countersigned the retainer agreement.

We intended to demonstrate that she is an essential researcher in her field of AI, therefore we added crucial points to her NIW petition packet. We noted that her work has been cited 934 times by dependent and independent researchers, demonstrating that her publications are widely recognized and relied upon in her chosen field. We also detailed the 66 peer-reviewed journal articles (21 of them first-authored), and 53 conference articles (9 of them first-authored) she published in no less than 9 highly-ranked journals.

Furthermore, we discussed how our client has been invited to conduct peer reviews at least 6 times. Given that only the most well-regarded scholars in the field are invited to review the work of their colleagues, particularly in prestigious forums such as these, it is apparent that she is regarded as an expert in her profession and on themes relating to her planned project.

Moreover, as an expert in the field of artificial intelligence (AI), we specified her proposed endeavor, which is to continue leveraging advanced machine learning, deep learning, and reinforcement learning to develop applications in natural language processing, biomedical data mining, automatic vehicles, and intelligent robotics, ultimately minimizing time costs and carbon emissions. Among other applications, her research is relevant to mitigating environmental problems and improving digital healthcare for Americans.

Additionally, we deduced that our client’s work is of great importance because it uses machine learning to accelerate the creation of infrastructure for AI research. She emphasizes natural language processing and the comprehension of concepts and semantics in AI knowledge, a critical step toward the implementation of accurate and logical computational intelligence.

To bolster our client’s case further, we added two recommendation letters signed by other expert scholars in the field and corroborated that her research addresses the critical issue of AI’s environmental impact. Her research contributes to creating sustainable AI by optimizing computation in robots and vehicles, thereby reducing computation time and carbon emissions.

As a result, our client’s education, experience, skill, record of publication and citation, and history of successful field research all show that she is well-positioned to advance her intended project. We are glad that our efforts and hard work in this case paid off effectively in demonstrating that our client’s significant contributions in her field of specialty make her an essential asset to the United States, and thus she won approval for her national interest waiver just after 4 days we submitted her case. A special thanks to the premium processing service which expedited the adjudicating time.
