Break out of the comfort zone. 

AI impacts our lives in all areas. Algorithms such as “Alpha-Zero” show the power of how autonomous and rapid systems can both learn and adapt. The automation of today’s industrial processes is driven by robotic systems, that are programmed to perform repetitive tasks. Yet one major hurdle we face in the adoption of robotics, including the perception, is the engineering – an area which requires a lot of knowledge and experience. With your help, this is what we seek to overcome.
Intrigued by the idea that the engineering can be automated, and machines can adapt themselves to new situations? So are we!
With the AI Residency Program, we offer the opportunity to launch your career in applied Artificial Intelligence research and inspire change with AI in the industrial sector. In this 9-month program you will challenge fundamental problems of Industrial AI as part of our ecosystem – with access to a unique pool of experts from the industrial domain and a platform to present your work to business owners from all business areas of Siemens.

If you want to make a difference, make it with us.

  • Develop and apply state of the art AutoML, RL or other methods to auto engineer and configure software for state estimation and perception for robotic systems
