INESC-ID researchers are among the best scientists in the world in the field of Computer Science
5 INESC-ID researchers are among the world’s top computer scientists, according to the 7th edition of Top Scientists Ranking for Computer Science & Electronics, released by Guide2Research. Once again, the highest number of Portuguese scientists is affiliated with Instituto Superior Técnico.
Among the 24 Portuguese computer scientists affiliated with national institutions are 5 INESC-ID reseachers: Ana Paiva, Joaquim Jorge, Luís Rodrigues, Francisco C. Santos and Leonel Sousa. In the list we found another 6 Portuguese scientists affiliated with Instituto Superior Técnico: José Bioucas Dias (IT), Mário Figueiredo (IT), António Pascoal (ISR-Lisboa), José Santos- Victor (ISR-Lisboa), Fernando Pereira (IT), José Rui Figueira (CEG-IST),
The list also includes four Técnico alumni: professors Manuela Veloso (Carnegie Mellon University- CMU), José MFMoura (CMU), Pedro Domingos (University of Washington) and João Marques-Silva (Institut Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse).
The first position of this year’s edition is held by professor Anil K. Jain (Michigan State University). Professors Yoshua Bengio (Université de Montréal) and Herbet Simon (CMU), hold the second and third position respectively.
Position in the ranking is based on each scientist’s influential contributions based on their h-index from Google Scholar. The h-index threshold for accepting a scientist to be examined is set to 40 provided that most of their publications are in the area of computer science and indexed in DBLP.
Guide2Research is one of the leading portals for computer science research providing trusted data on scientific contributions since 2015.
The list aims to highlight the major contributions on Computer Science and Electronics and to inspire researchers, entrepreneurs and decision-makers around the world.
