Just as electricity transformed numerous industries starting 100 years ago, AI is now poised to do the same. AI Fund is a startup studio building new AI companies from the ground up. Our companies bridge AI technology and applications, focusing on industries and problems that we believe move the world forward. Our team merges a deep understanding of AI technology with a proven ability to start new ventures. We have a unique business model that prepares founding members of a portfolio company with technical validation of the idea, experienced back office operational support and our team’s AI know how as well as connections within the AI community. 

About FourthBrain:
This fall, we are running a six residential program designed to take strong software developers and train them to be Machine Learning engineers. The program is full time, and intensive, and run by instructors from top universities. We’ve had strong results for students in similar programs, and are opening it up to wider group for the first time. There’s no upfront cost - the program is paid through an income share agreement.

Logistics of the residential program:
* We ask participants to be full time, so that they can focus on learning quickly without distraction.We’ve found that yields the best results.
* We offer residential housing and meals for the entirety of the program, so you can focus on your studies. 
*The fall 2019 program is split between Silicon Valley and Puerto Rico

What do you need to know?
We are first and foremost looking for students with a hunger to learn and ability to focus full time on studying machine learning. You do not need to have any prior background or experience in machine learning.
Applicants are expected to have the following background:
*Knowledge of basic computer science principles and skills, at a level sufficient to write a reasonably non-trivial computer program in Python, C++, or Java.
* Familiarity with probability theory, multivariable calculus, and linear algebra

What is the cost of the program?
There are no upfront costs. Upon graduation, we will help place you as a Machine Learning Engineer. You will pay back the program cost through a small portion of your future income over a limited number of years. 

What should I do if interested?
We encourage you to fill out our short application, which will kick off the interview process. We have a large number of applicants, so cannot promise space in the program, but try to respond quickly to each application.
