Hi! I just finished my PhD in Mathematics and I’m looking for a good Deep Learning research lab to apply to.

Apart from the obvious choices like Brain or FAIR, I heard good things about the Salesforce Research (ex-MetaMind) team.

Anybody have experience with them? What is their reputation? Salesforce itself isn’t that hot of a company, what about the research dept?

    I think they are good Richard socher , Stephen Merritt and others in team are doing some good work in the area of NLP using deep learning , but not sure how much of that work gets transformed into their actual products . Specially since end of the day salesforce has business to run and want to earn money that’s another thing to keep as a variable in the equation . I will say depends on your area of research if it matches closely to what you want to work on that’s a good team to work with , new but may be fun problems to work with

    Richard socher is industry leading. Of course their stuff is getting worked into the product. You would do well to work with that team for sure
