Call for Nomination — AI's 10 to Watch
Every two years, IEEE Intelligent Systems acknowledges and celebrates 10 young stars in the field of AI as "AI's 10 to Watch." These accomplished researchers have all completed their doctoral work in the past five years. Despite being relatively junior in their career, each one has made impressive research contributions and had an impact in the literature — and in some cases, in real-world applications as well.
IEEE Intelligent Systems will once again be selecting 10 young AI scientists to feature as "AI's 10 to Watch" in an upcoming issue.
To submit nominations, please email IEEE Intelligent Systems' Editor in Chief, Daniel Zeng, with the names, affiliations, and web page URLs of the nominated candidates, along with a short paragraph explaining why they should be considered young stars in the field. The nominees must have received their Ph.D. degrees in the past five years (Jan. 2010–Dec. 2014). Nominations are due by March 25, 2015.
AI's 10 to Watch, 2013
The group nominated this year was particularly strong. It has been a struggle to choose the best of the best. In the end, the top 10 surfaced with unanimous support from the advisory and editorial boards. We're particularly pleased about the diversity of the winning group. It's safe to say that everyone involved in the selection process has been very proud of these young stars' contributions, of what AI as a community can offer, and how bright the future of AI can be. We're sure that young AI students and researchers will find inspiration from these young stars, and that the AI community will look forward to their continued excellence and sustained impact.
Nominations in all subfields of AI were sought from a wide range of senior AI researchers. A short list of top candidates was voted on by the award committee, and then the decisions were finalized with the entire advisory and editorial boards of IEEE Intelligent Systems. I would like to take this opportunity to thank two past editors-in-chief of IEEE Intelligent Systems, Jim Hendler and Fei-Yue Wang, who served as the co-chairs of the AI's 10 to Watch award committee and did a great job managing the nomination and selection process.
Congratulations again to our young colleagues for winning this special recognition!
