Weekly Hours: 40
Role Number:200554363
Within Apple’s Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning organization (AIML), you can take part in the ongoing revolution that machine learning plays in daily life. Apple’s fully-integrated hardware and software provide unique opportunities to deliver amazing experiences, all while prioritizing user privacy. We do work in all fields of Machine Learning, including, but not limited to, large language models, diffusion models and reinforcement learning, as well as other related areas such as accessibility, privacy, and fairness. As an AIML intern, you will get to explore new methods, apply machine learning to solve ambitious problems, advance state-of-the art technology through research and publications, challenge existing metrics or protocols, and develop new theories that will impact the way we understand machine learning and the experiences it can enable. Come collaborate with some of the best in the business and help build the world's most innovative products and experiences.


In an AIML internship, you will collaborate with researchers, engineers, and program/project managers to tackle innovative challenges. You will also receive technical mentorship and guidance that allows you to learn new things every day, gain practical skills, build real world experience, develop a greater understanding of our industry, and form valuable connections. Together, you and your team will partner to design and implement an innovative solution for a Machine Learning problem that is meaningful. At the end of your internship, you will have the opportunity to meet and present your work to AIML leadership. Where appropriate, you will have the opportunity to submit your work for publication at a suitable conference.

Minimum Qualifications

  • Working toward an undergraduate, graduate or doctoral degree in computer science, engineering, data science, applied mathematics, or equivalent. Doctoral degree paths are preferred for research focused internships.
  • At the end of the internship, you must return to school to continue your education or the internship must be the last requirement for you to graduate.
