Best companies/teams for high-impact machine learning?
Current PhD student working in ML.
Looking for a place that does a great job pushing ML into high-impact production.
I've done two internships. One was a late-stage startup with lots of prediction problems, but everyone just used regression. No process at the time to integrate serious real-time ML with products, so hard to find cool problems to work on. The second was research at Intel which is a *chill* place to do ML SW because it's impossible to get fired and you have plenty of freedom, but tough to see any long-term impact. Which places are a happy middle ground?
For big places (FB/Google/Amazon/etc) it would be good to know teams/areas where the impact is highest. Not too concerned about hours/pressure for now. It doesn't have to be DeepMind and WaveNet->Pixel, just something better than regression. If it helps, my background is Bayesian inference/approximate inference for neural networks.
