Global ride provider Uber is offering one individual a year-long program to study artificial intelligence either in the US or Canada.

The company's Australian arm said in a statement on Wednesday that the Uber AI Residency was meant for recent graduates, young professionals who wanted to reinforce their AI skills or anybody else interested in becoming an AI researcher.

The program for 2020 will focus on the company's self-driving cars project which is being run under its Advanced Technology Group.

The person who is selected will be able to choose different areas of research and will work with researchers and engineers with the ATG either in Toronto or San Francisco.

"For instance, our 2019 residency class is working on foundational research projects in probabilistic modelling, deep learning, and reinforcement learning, as well as computer vision," the company said.

Those interested can apply before 19 January 2020. More details are available here.
