DeepMind was established in London in 2010 and its DeepMind Scholarships are part of a wider initiative by the company to broaden participation in science and support the wider research ecosystem, including in Africa.
The MSc in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence is a one-year structured master’s programme at Stellenbosch University, designed for students with a strong mathematical and computational background. It will equip you with the fundamentals of ML and AI, plus a suite of sophisticated techniques and concepts at the research forefront of these fields.
- Scholarships are open to anyone from Africa. Preference will be given to applicants from groups across the continent that are underrepresented in the global machine learning landscape. Shortlisted applicants may be invited for online interviews.
- Awarded scholarships will be conditioned on formal acceptance into full-time postgraduate studies at Stellenbosch University, with a research topic focusing on machine learning to be approved by the scholarship committee.
- Be from a sub-Saharan African country.
