Team members from Salesforce Research will evaluate deep learning projects, and award grants to those that qualify.

 

We've seen incredible progress in deep learning models and applications recently. What seemed like a pipe dream just a few years ago is now becoming reality. Yet, artificial intelligence is still in its early days and there is still a lot of work to be done.

That is why we are excited to announce the inaugural Salesforce Research Deep Learning Grant to support research that will help shape the future of AI. Our goal is to support diverse individuals who extend, use or analyze deep learning methods or can provide fresh perspectives on current research. Bring on the big ideas!

Starting today, university researchers and faculty, non-profit organizations, and NGOs are invited to apply for the grant by August 31, 2018. Applicants should submit a two page PDF detailing their proposed research and the impact it will have on their respective research community. We encourage you to identify what your research would be enabling, and the proposed outcome should you achieve your vision. Please detail your proposed test case, expected challenges, how you plan to mitigate them and a budget overview. Salesforce will fund up to $50,000 USD, depending on the needs of the project.
