According to Semantic Scholar, a search tool that uses AI to actually understand—to a limited extent—the content of published literature, Prof. Michael Jordan is the most influential computer scientist on the web. Semantic Scholar, developed at the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, is a “smart” search service for journal articles which is designed to quickly highlight the most important papers and identify the connections between them. The project and its rankings are profiled in a Science article titled “Who’s the Michael Jordan of computer science? New tool ranks researchers’ influence.” Profs. Jitendra Malik and Scott Shenker also rank in the top 7.
