Prof. Thien Huu Nguyen Named Recipient of the “2022 AI 2000 Most Influential Scholar Honorable Mention in Natural Language Processing”

AMiner Scholar ( has named Prof. Professor Thien Huu Nguyen the 2022 AI 2000 Most Influential Scholar Honorable Mention in Natural Language Processing “for his outstanding and vibrant contributions to this field between 2012 and 2021.”

According to AMiner (, “The AI 2000 Most Influential Scholar Annual List aims to name 2,000 of the world’s top research scholars from the fields of artificial intelligence over this decade (2020-2029). The list is conferred in recognition of outstanding technical achievements with lasting contribution and impact. Each year, the top 10 scholars from each domain will be named as ‘AI 2000 Most Influential Scholars’ and the top 11–100 scholars will be awarded as ‘AI 2000 Most Influential Scholar Honorable Mention.’  The 2022 winners are among the most-impactful scholars from the top venues of their respective subject fields between 2012 and 2021.”

Prof. Nguyen joined the CIS department in 2018. He obtained his Ph.D. in natural language processing (NLP) at New York University and did a postdoc at the University of Montreal. His research areas involve information extraction, language grounding, and deep learning. Prof. Nguyen developed one of the first deep learning models for entity recognition, relation extraction, and event extraction of natural language processing that have transformative applications for intelligent text analysis, summarization, machine translation, and question answering. His current  research explores multi-domain and multilingual NLP that aims to build robust NLP systems to perform information extraction tasks over different domains and languages. His research has been supported by NSF, IARPA, Army Research Office, Adobe Research, and IBM Research. More information about Prof. Nguyen’s research can be found at
