Apple's website says the program "invites experts in various fields to apply their expertise to build revolutionary machine learning and AI empowered products and experiences."
The program lasts for one year, and is open to residents with STEM graduate degrees "or equivalent industry experience, software development backgrounds, and niche expertise — like design, linguistics, neuroscience, or psychology."
The program is designed to invest in the resident's technical and theoretical development in the field of machine learning and to advance their professional careers. Residents will get personalized machine learning and AI courses, an Apple mentor, opportunities to collaborate with other residents, hands-on experience with "high-impact projects" and more.
The program begins next summer, but job openings are already available on Apple's jobs website. Locations for the openings are Seattle, Cambridge, Zurich, Cupertino, and various locations within Germany. Applicants will need to be proficient coders with a graduate degree in a STEM field, or with equivalent experience in software engineering.
