Dr. Qi Tian, professor of computer science at the University of Texas at San Antonio, was named one of the top 10 Most Influential Scholars for his contributions in the field of multimedia by AMiner.org.


The AMiner Most Influential Scholar Annual List names the world's top-cited research scholars from the fields of science and engineering. The list is conferred in recognition of outstanding technical achievements with lasting contribution and impact to the research community. The 2016 winners are among the most-cited scholars from the top venues of their respective subject fields as of 2016. Recipients are automatically determined by a computer algorithm deployed in the AMiner system that tracks and ranks scholars based on citation counts collected by top-venue publications.

As of 2016, the system has collected information on over 136 million researchers, 230 million publication papers, and 300,000 venues. The system has been in operation on the Internet since 2006 and has been visited by nearly 8.32 million independent IP accesses. It provides various search/mining services for publishers, NSFC, and research venues such as ACM/IEEE Transactions, ACM SIGKDD, ACM WSDM, and IEEE ICDM.
