A comprehensive list recently released by Stanford University identified the top 2 percent (around 160.000 scientists) of the world’s nearly 7 million working scientists.
Prof. Sven Lončarić, Head of the Image Processing Group, is ranked in the top 1% of the world's scientists in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Image Processing.
More about the study: Based on citations, h-index, co-authorship-adjusted hm-index, citations to papers in different authorship positions, and a composite indicator, the list was generated based on published work from the Department of Medicine, Health Research and Policy, at Stanford’s Biomedical Data Science, and Statistics and Meta-Research Innovation Center. The study sought to provide a comprehensive database of a sufficiently large number of the most-cited scientists. The result creates an availability of standardized, field-annotated data to help achieve a more nuanced use of ranking metrics that is more accurate and balanced.
