The AI has it on influential women in engineering

The ACADEMIC INFLUENCE rating group lists its pick

Well not quite the people at the site  –they use a machine-learning programme to search public data for mentions of engineers whose names intersect with disciplines, refined by relevance.

There are undoubtedly a bunch of issues with the algorithm but people who promote academic rankings based  in part on surveys of researchers’ opinions may not be in the strongest position to judge. (The AI list came out last month but CMM only just saw it)

Australians on last month’s list of the 35 influential women in engineering are, Rose Amal (UNSW) and Marita Cheng (CEO of telepresence robotics company Aubot)
