Snap Inc. has valued research since the company’s very early days: even when the company numbered only 150 employees, we already had a small research team. Today, Snap Research is a lab of 40 people, and we collaborate widely with students and faculty in academia. In the past year alone, we published papers in numerous leading conferences, including CVPR, ICCV, BMVC, IJCAI, AAAI, and SIGGRAPH Asia.
Today, we are pleased to announce the winners of our inaugural Snap Inc. Research Fellowship.
We chose outstanding PhD students carrying out research in areas of computer science relevant to our company, including computer graphics, natural language processing, computer vision, machine learning, data mining, speech and audio processing, artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, and other related fields.
These inaugural fellows were selected based on the relevance and quality of their research, their academic performance in technical coursework, their understanding of how research initiatives could contribute to future innovation at Snap Inc., and their technical and communication skills.
Each Fellow will receive a $10,000 award and an offer for a full-time paid internship on the Research team at Snap Inc. for up to four months during the 2018 calendar year. We’d also like to recognize our Honorable Mentions, who will receive a $2,000 award.
Please join us in congratulating them!
We also have a Scholarship for undergraduate and Master’s students. Click here to learn more.
