Deadline: 8 April 2023 | AIMS South Africa’s 2023 Master’s Program in AI for Science (Fully-funded)
The AIMS South Africa AI for Science Master’s Programme 2023 is now accepting applications. A new stream in the Master of Mathematical Science program at the African Institute of Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) in South Africa, called AI for Science, was made feasible thanks to a collaboration with DeepMind.
The program is located at the fascinating nexus of science and artificial intelligence. It is a one-year taught masters program that is entirely residential and includes research. Students from all over Africa who are enthusiastic about mathematics, AI, and machine learning are welcome to apply. They are searching for students who are awestruck by the universe and the wonders of the cosmos and who want to use their skills to advance scientific research.
- 40 scholars will get yearly funding from DeepMind over the following four years. The money pays for full scholarships, student computing expenses, and equipment.
- As DeepMind scholars, the students will receive access to DeepMind’s researchers and engineers for mentoring and support.
- Beyond scholarships, DeepMind’s industry-leading expertise in AI for Science will be utilized by the program.
