“We’re hiring to grow to 75 people or so over the coming year,” he said. “We’ve just gotten a bunch of extra space in our building in Fremont. We’re growing because…a lot of people say it’s the AI spring.”
AI2 has posted a number of listings for job seekers hoping to join the movement, including a Research Scientist position. The institute’s research scientists work on projects in natural language processing, information extraction, diagram understanding, machine learning, theory formation, and more.
