Who is the most influential scientist today?

    I've been reading about the life of different scientist like Newton, Albert Einstein and Ramanujan and a question came to my mind
    Who do you think is the most important or influential scientist today?

    That is really a poor question, because there are so many areas of physics (or other sciences and mathematics, are related fields) in which an individual can practice, teach or otherwise contribute.

    I don't know of anyone who is singularly important to the exclusion of others.
