The goal of Microsoft Research Montreal is to achieve Artificial General Intelligence by teaching machines to think, reason and communicate like humans. Microsoft is an early leader in using deep and reinforcement learning to solve language-understanding problems and in training machines to model the decision-making capabilities of the human brain. Based in the global AI hub of Montréal, their team consists of experts in their respective fields.

The goal of the reinforcement learning group at Microsoft Research Montreal is to develop theoretically grounded methods and techniques to improve the scalability of RL, with the aim of applying it in real products, such as dialogue management and intelligent bots. As a member of the RL team, you will play an important role in making this ambitious goal a reality. Working closely together with other team members, and supported by a group of skilled engineers, you will take part on conceiving, implementing and testing new ideas that can revolutionize the way we interact with machines.
