Applications are encouraged from people who have a strong technical background and are deeply passionate about research in AI. Any Prior experience in machine learning will certainly act as a strength but alongside people from a diverse range of backgrounds, that include areas that are unrelated but not limited to machine learning such as math, physics, finance, economics, linguistics, computational social science, and bioinformatics are also looked forward to. he research residents who will be accepted will be based in New York locations and Facebook Menlo Park.
