The Google AI Residency Program is a 12-month research training role designed to jumpstart or advance your career in machine learning research. There is a branch in Ghana managed by M. Cisse. He has put the call that people should apply. If you want to join the kings and queens in this exciting world of AI, go immediately and apply. Make sure you are not telling them how you could build a better AI for jumping cats. Focus on how you could fix a local problem in Africa (food poison, weather, agro, etc). Google has many people working on jumping cats, etc.
The program was created in 2015 with the goal of training and supporting the next generation of deep learning researchers. With machine learning fast becoming a critical area for a broad range of applications, we recognized the need to evolve our research goals and expand beyond deep learning to include a breadth of machine learning subfields. People from a wide range of disciplines are beginning to realize the importance and impact of this area of research. With growing interest in the field, there is a corresponding need for researchers with hands-on experience in machine learning techniques and methodologies.
Residents will have the opportunity to be mentored by distinguished scientists and engineers from various teams within Google AI, and work on real-world machine learning problems and applications. In addition, they will also have the opportunity to collaborate and partner closely with various research groups across Google and Alphabet.
Our team will review applications on a rolling basis, so it is in your best interest to submit your application as soon as possible. Visit g.co/airesidency/apply for more details about this opportunity and how to apply.
