AI’s 10 to Watch, 2022

IEEE Intelligent Systems is promoting young and aspiring artificial intelligence (AI) scientists and recognizing the rising stars as “AI‘s 10 Watch.” This biennial 2022 edition is slightly different from the previous editions: We solicited submissions from individuals who had obtained their Ph.D. up to 10 years prior (as opposed to 5 years in all of the previous editions). This led to more applications of the highest quality. The selection committee finally had to select 10 outstanding contributors from a pool of 30+ highly competitive and strong nominations, which made the selection decisions rather difficult. After a careful and detailed selection process through many rounds of discussions via e-mails and live meetings, the committee voted unanimously on a short list of 10 top candidates who have all demonstrated outstanding achievements in different areas of AI. The selection was based solely on scientific quality, reputation, impact, and expert endorsements accumulated since their Ph.D.
