On Semantic Scholar, each author has a count of "Highly Influential Citations", see for example https://www.semanticscholar.org/author/Onur-Mutlu/1734461.

This information is also present in the API (field influentialCitationCount).

How are those "Highly Influential Citations" identified and counted?
