Case Summary

In this case, Meyer Law Group was hired to file an O-1A visa for an individual with extraordinary ability in science. A major software development company hired the client as a Computer Vision Research Scientist. The client has a PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering and is one of the top researchers in his field. However, his specialty lies in creating algorithms and data sets that teach computers to see and understand geographical locations.

Brief Summary of the Petition:

Firstly, we detailed his research background. At the time of filing, the client had six approved patents in the United States and China. Also, he won numerous awards for his unique innovations to his field. Specifically, one of the awards the client received was for a revolutionary algorithm. The algorithm helped computers detect unusual activity in airports via surveillance cameras. Specifically, he had 23 journal publications with over 400 citations at the time of filing.    

Finally, the client’s petition included six letters of recommendation. Each letter reaffirmed the client’s expertise and passion for his field. For example, one letter wrote, due to various EU projects I took part in and my collaborations in the EU, China and US, I can say that his potentials are among the 1% of the people I have met. Further, the USA would benefit from having such an exceptional researcher working for US companies or universities. Moreover, the methods he developed have the potential of being increased to various other fields and contribute to industry and science.”
