The Brain Residency Program was created in 2015 with the goal of training and supporting the next generation of deep learning researchers. With growing interest in the field, there is a corresponding need for researchers with hands-on experience in machine learning techniques and methodologies.
Since launch, Googe has welcomed two cohorts of Residents, and they’re now expanding the program’s scope to a broader group of teams doing machine learning research.
By drawing on Google’s state-of-the-art resources and research experience, they provide Residents on the program the skills that will enable them to tackle some of the world’s greatest machine learning challenges.
Trainees will work with research mentors to formulate research project(s) and/or novel application(s) of machine learning, conduct research and publish it in competitive venues, and implement algorithms in TensorFlow.
Applicants should have the following minimum qualifications:
- BA/BS degree in a STEM field such as Computer Science, Mathematics or Statistics, or equivalent practical experience;
- Completed coursework in calculus, linear algebra, and probability, or their equivalent;
- Experience with machine learning or deep learning, applications of machine learning to NLP, computer vision, speech, systems, robotics, algorithms, optimization, on-device learning, social networks, economics, information retrieval, journalism, or health care.
