In another online forum, I have a compsci student insisting that starting *salaries* for a newly minted PhD working AI at Deepmind is $500k . I think this is horseshit and am looking for data to back that up.

    I'd be very surprised. It's very difficult to get such salaries outside the US and deepmind is in London.

    Average is obviously a bad metric for a small group like Deepmind where a few high earners can introduce a large bias. Also in most cases figures in such articles are plain wrong!

    Average isn't a metric and I'm well aware of the effect of outliers on sample averages.

    Okay fine, the article is wrong.

    So you don't think 150 to 350k spans the majority of new PhD salaries at deepmind?

    From some random article...
    The report went on to document the average salaries of Google's DeepMind staff in Great Britain, which amounted to $345,000 per employee.

    I bet they're more than 150k and less than 350k

      Which article? Average of 345k would prob mean a median of 250-350k depending on the skew, which sounds good for senior in US, but high in UK. But then again, if this is researchers, it probably counts many staff roles and (ex-)professors.

      Just search for avg salary at deepmind. It's the first thing to pop up. It's quoting the New York times I believe.

      DeepMind is pretty prestigious . 350k TC is normal. Otherwise, hmm, maybe the guy is like Andrew Ng

    What about salaries for other sorts of roles at DeepMind?

    140-200k usd TC would be my estimate. That's roughly what Google London pays at that level. I dont think deepmind would be much different.

    OP
    I think Komolgorov’s reasoning is sound. High earners might skew it, but then entry level PhDs are going to be higher than typical entry level, plus 150-350 covers a pretty broad range. PhD is treated like Bachelors plus 3-4 years at most companies for ma salary perspective . If entry was 500k, I doubt the average would be $345!
