    Research scientist is always more recognized than applied ml/scientist. The main difference is that the applied work focuses on engineering the models into actual products as well as implementing academic papers. The research groups focus on publishing new papers and advancing the fields of machine/deep learning. Research groups are also more prototype focused.

    Which team in google research. In general google research is better for learning and Facebook is better for career growth. Been to both.

      No. Heavy ML team though. Lots of hands on experience.
