Recognition of talent and excellence in Artificial Intelligence
28 October, 2022
It ends a week of recognition for our researchers that began on Monday 24 with the publication of the “Ranking of the World Scientists: World’s Top 2% Scientists”, prepared by Stanford University, which places 127 UGR researchers among the most influential in the world.
Of that number, a large group of 18 researchers in the area of Artificial Intelligence and Image Processing, are researchers of the DaSCI Institute, which comes to recognize the quality of the research done from our institution.
This ranking, considered one of the most prestigious worldwide, was created by a group of experts from Stanford University, Elsevier and SciTech Strategies. The ranking uses information on the publications of researchers, contained in the Scopus database. To produce it, Scopus data on the number of articles published (1996-2021), the number of times each research has been cited and the length of time researchers have been active were analyzed.
Three days later, the U.S. magazine U.S. News & World Report published the Ranking “2022/2023 Best Global Universities” in which the University of Granada was recognized as the third most important in Europe in Artificial Intelligence (AI).
This ranking evaluates the quality of universities in more than 90 countries, based on 13 indicators that measure their academic performance in research and their global and regional reputation. For this purpose, data from the Clarivate database are used. The result is the 2,000 best universities in the world. Globally, the data place our University in 313th place worldwide and sixth out of 53 nationally.
And all this at a time when Granada left ready the document to be submitted for the candidacy as the headquarters of the Spanish Agency for Supervision of Artificial Intelligence and we can only hope that the great results in both rankings are the necessary impetus to achieve it.
