AIML - Machine Learning Researcher, Foundation Models

Seattle, Washington, United States
Machine Learning and AI


Weekly Hours: 40
Role Number:200551399
We are a group of engineers and researchers responsible for building foundation models at Apple. We build infrastructure, datasets, and models with fundamental general capabilities such as understanding and generation of text, images, speech, videos, and other modalities and apply these models to Apple products. We are looking for researchers who are passionate about developing algorithms, techniques, and systems that push the frontier of deep learning and delight millions of users with Apple products powered by foundation models.


We believe that the most interesting problems in deep learning research arise when we try to apply learning to real-world use cases, and this is also where the most important breakthroughs come from. You will work with a close-knit and fast growing team of world-class engineers and scientists to tackle some of the most challenging problems in foundation models and deep learning, including natural language processing, multi-modal understanding, and combining learning with knowledge. Example applications include (but are not limited to) - Web-scale information retrieval - Human-like conversation agent - Multi-modal perception for existing products and future hardware platforms - On-device intelligence and learning with strong privacy protections Further, you will have opportunities to identify and develop novel applications of deep learning in Apple products. You will see your ideas not only published in papers, but also improve the experience of millions of users.
