The Google AI Residency Program (formerly known as the Google Brain Residency Program) is being offered starting in the summer of 2018. This year-long program is designed to advance participants’ careers in machine learning research. Residents will work with distinguished scientists from various teams in order to become established AI researchers.
This program was created in 2015 and has been recently expanded to include a broader group of research teams. This program allows residents to publish their work externally and develop a strong reputation in the field of research. Residents will conduct original, fundamental research and contribute to services utilized by millions of individuals.
This program is ideal for individuals who want to learn how to conduct machine learning research, especially in collaboration with other qualified researchers. Candidates with limited experience in machine learning or related fields may apply, as may those who have research experience in another field (such as mathematics, physics, bioinformatics, etc).
Qualified applicants will have a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree in a STEM field, such as Mathematics, Computer Science, or Statistics, or equivalent professional practical experience. They should have completed coursework in calculus, linear algebra, and probability, and have experience with programming languages such as C++ or Python.
Applicants must be able to submit proof of graduation from their current degree programs before beginning the residency. Candidates from any country may apply, and work visas will be supplied if needed. Students should also submit a resume, cover letter, transcript, and formal application. The application should demonstrate a formal interest in the field, along with any special proficiencies, awards, or skills. A formal CV should also be supplied, including a cover letter including a statement on why the applicant is qualified for the Google AI Residency.
