Apple pushes hard on AI, begins international ML residency scheme
Apple continues its search for the brightest engineering talents, and its Machine Learning Research group has introduced a new residency program, hoping to attract smart people to work with the company on new AI projects.
AI in everything
Apple is baking machine learning into everything it does, which means any expert taking the company up on this opportunity is likely to encounter a chance to build something interesting, given the reach Apple now has across most aspects of daily life.
The scheme has been announced on Twitter. Residencies last one year, during which those who sign up will also gain technical and theoretical training to help advance their careers.
“The AI/ML residency program invites experts in various fields to apply their expertise to build revolutionary machine learning and AI empowered products and experiences,” the company says.
“The residents will have the opportunity to attend personalized machine learning and AI courses, learn from an Apple mentor closely involved in their program, collaborate with fellow multi-talented residents, and gain hands-on experience working on high-impact projects with our machine learning teams.”
There are positions globally, in Zurich, the U.S., Cambridge (UK), and various locations in Germany.

Earlier this month, Apple’s SVP AI and Machine Learning, John Giannandrea, discussed the company’s efforts in Apple Silicon and AI.
“I really honestly think there’s not a corner of iOS or Apple experiences that will not be transformed by machine learning over the coming few years,” he said.
Earlier this month Apple quietly published a white paper that should really have set tongues wagging: ‘Learning Insulin-Glucose Dynamics in the Wild‘.
“We develop a new model of insulin-glucose dynamics for forecasting blood glucose in type 1 diabetics,” the paper begins.
