About AI's 10 to Watch

To promote the community of AI researchers and their work, IEEE Intelligent Systems celebrates 10 AI scientists via its biennial “AI’s 10 to Watch” special section. Since 2006, we have called for nominations from all subfields of AI so that we may select rising stars and honor them on the pages of the magazine.

In 2006, as “we enter(ed) the second 50 years of AI’s history,” the IEEE Intelligent Systems editors noted in the May/June issue that there were many aspects of AI systems that were still unknown – “whether such systems would be based on mathematics or biological models, or learned or engineered.” They created the 10 to Watch as a way to honor the promise and early accomplishments of new AI researchers as they took on these pivotal questions and challenges.
