Microsoft Computer Vision PhD Internship Opportunities Overview

At Microsoft, Interns work on real-world projects in collaboration with teams across the world, while having fun along the way. You’ll be empowered to build community, explore your passions and achieve your goals. This is your chance to bring your solutions and ideas to life while working on cutting-edge technology. The internship is designed not only for you to do great work with the opportunity to learn and grow, but to experience our culture full of diverse community connection, executive engagement, and memorable events.   

About Internship

It has never been a more exciting time for AI and Computer Vision at Microsoft. Both Microsoft and the industry at large are making big investments in this area and taking great strides forwards. We continue to advance the state of the art and impact Microsoft, the industry and our customers by democratizing AI for everyone including consumers, developers and businesses.  

From being able to log you in with face recognition, launch Cortana with a voice command, to the exciting possibilities in augmented reality and computational photography, and or taking part in moving beyond screens and pixels, creating a new reality aimed at bringing us closer together-whether that’s colleagues brainstorming around a giant digital whiteboard, scientists “meeting” on the surface of a virtual Mars, or some yet undreamt-of possibility. To get there, we’re incorporating diverse groundbreaking technologies in computer vision and are looking for University PhD graduates to help us bring these applications and other incredible computer vision products to millions!
