Huawei lab head first Chinese to receive AAAI fellowship

HuaweiDr Qiang Yang, Head of Huawei’s Noah’s Ark Lab, has been elected a fellow of AAAI (the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence).

AAAI Fellow is the highest honour in the artificial intelligence (AI) community, recognising a small group of AAAI members who have made significant and sustained contributions to the field of artificial intelligence. This year, AAAI elected eight fellows from across the world.

Yang is the 1st AAAI Fellow in Greater China and first among Chinese Scientists worldwide. He was elected “for significant contributions to AI planning, data mining and case-based reasoning” in AI. Yang is already a fellow of the institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, International Association for Pattern Recognition, and The American Association for the Advancement of Science.

“I am much honoured to be elected as an AAAI Fellow,” noted  Yang. “I believe Noah’s Ark Lab will play a major role in innovative research on artificial intelligence and big data research. Our work will help move AI into the next level both in theory and practice and at the same time, promote Huawei’s leadership in the business of intelligent systems and big data.”
