Machine Learning and AI

The work is innovative.
The experience is magic.

A group of Apple machine learning and AI employees have a conversation in an office.

The people working here in machine learning and AI are building amazing experiences into every Apple product, allowing millions to do what they never imagined. Because Apple fully integrates hardware and software across every device, these researchers and engineers collaborate more effectively to improve the user experience while protecting user data. Come make an impact with the products you create and the research you publish.

For Cecile, collaboration puts machine learning on the fast track. Cecile

Any emoji can make people smile, but it takes talented people to make an Animoji smile — and Cecile and her colleagues make sure those expressions are mirrored instantaneously. As an engineering manager at Apple, she’s part of a team that’s responsible for developing the software layers that enable hardware acceleration for neural networks on Apple platforms, delivering real-time performance for a variety of applications. Their innovative approach allows on-device execution, providing better performance and power efficiency for our customers while preserving their data privacy. Cecile attributes these exceptional customer experiences to some inspiring collaboration among people from different backgrounds with different perspectives. “Apple attracts a diverse array of highly skilled engineers, so every time we come together to do something cool, we get this inspiring sweet spot of greatness.”
