The 2018 Google PhD Fellowship (North America, Europe, Middle East) recently released a list of 39 doctoral candidates, including 8 Chinese.

The Google PhD student program was established in 2009 to honor outstanding doctoral students in computer science and related disciplines. It has been nine years since then. The project has now supported hundreds of outstanding doctoral students, and some have become teachers and industry researchers. , entrepreneur or entrepreneur. According to Lei Feng Net (public number: Lei Feng network), the elected students can get a lot of research funds, but also have access to Google internship opportunities, and in-depth exchanges with the Institute's experienced instructors.

Lei Fengnet learned that Google’s doctoral fellowship award must be submitted by qualified schools (students may not apply directly), and each school can only nominate two doctoral students, the competition is very fierce. The selection areas include the following 12 directions:

  • Algorithms, Optimizations and Markets (Algorithms, Optimizations and Markets)

  • Computational Neuroscience

  • Human-Computer Interaction

  • Machine Learning

  • Mobile Computing (Mobile Computing)

  • Machine Perception, Speech Technology and Computer Vision, Machine Perception, Speech Technology and Computer Vision

  • Natural Language Processing

  • Privacy and Security

  • Programming Technology and Software Engineering (Programming Technology and Software Engineering)

  • Quantum Computing

  • Structured Data and Database Management (Structured Data and Database Management)

  • Systems and Networking
