The Artificial Intelligence (AI) Residency Program is a one-year research training position designed to give you hands-on experience with artificial intelligence research while working in Meta AI. This program is ideal for those interested in applying to PhD programs, publishing research papers, and maximizing their experience before applying or attending a graduate program in the designated field.
The program pairs you with AI Researchers to help guide your project. With the team, you will pick a research problem of mutual interest and then devise new machine learning techniques to solve it. The research will be communicated to the academic community through collaboration across Meta AI, academic papers and conferences (i.e. NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR, CVPR), and open-source code releases or product impact.
We encourage applications from people with technical backgrounds who hope to apply to a graduate program or would like more preparation before doing so. Prior experience in machine learning is certainly a strength, but we seek people with a passion for AI from a diverse range of backgrounds, including areas ostensibly unrelated to machine learning such as (but not limited to) math, physics, finance, economics, linguistics, computational social science, neuroscience, and bioinformatics. This is a full-time program that cannot be undertaken in conjunction with university study or a full-time job.
