Google AI Residency Program

The Google AI Residency Program is a 18-month research training role designed to jumpstart or advance your career in machine learning research.

The Google AI Residency 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.

Meet some of our current residents

By drawing on Google's state-of-the-art resources and research experience, we provide Residents in the program the skills that will enable them to tackle some of the world's greatest machine learning challenges. Meet some of our current Residents in the cohort!
