Facebook is seeking Research Interns to join our Natural Language Processing teams in Menlo Park, California, Redmond, Washington, and Seattle, Washington. These teams are part of the Facebook AI Applied Research and Messenger Assistant organizations within Facebook, working to advance the state of the art in natural language understanding and generation, and deploys these systems at scale to break down language barriers, enable people to understand and communicate with anyone, and to provide a safe experience—no matter what language they speak. The opportunities and challenges of this work are immense. Billions of people use our services to connect and communicate in their preferred language, but many of these languages lack traditional NLP resources and our systems need to be robust to the informal tone, slang and typos often found in daily... communication. Our research spans multiple areas across NLP and machine learning, including deep learning/neural networks, machine translation, natural language understanding and generation, low-resource NLP, question answering, dialogue, and cross-lingual and cross-domain transfer learning. As a Research Intern, you will help us apply cutting-edge NLP algorithms to a wide range of media understanding challenges at Facebook. The duration of this internship is 16 weeks with Summer, Fall, and Winter start dates. Internships will be awarded on a rolling basis and candidates are encouraged to apply early.
