IBM IBM Research AI Residency Program in Boston, Massachusetts
At IBM, work is more than a job - it's a calling: To build. To design. To code. To consult. To think along with clients and sell. To make markets. To invent. To collaborate. Not just to do something better, but to attempt things you've never thought possible. Are you ready to lead in this new era of technology and solve some of the world's most challenging problems? If so, lets talk.
Your Role and Responsibilities
IBM Research AI Residency Program:
The IBM Research AI Residency program is a 13-month program that provides opportunity for scientists, engineers, domain experts and entrepreneurs to conduct innovative research and development on important and emerging topics in Artificial Intelligence. The program aims at creating and investigating novel approaches in AI that progress capabilities towards significant technical and real world challenges. AI Residents will work closely with IBM Research scientists and are expected to fully complete a project within the 13-month residency. The results of the project may include publications in top-AI conferences and journals, development of prototypes demonstrating important new AI functionality, and fielding of working AI systems.
