Are you a Ph.D. graduate or really good and enthusiastic about artificial intelligence? Well, if you live in Europe, you should know that Facebook is opening a new AI research lab in Paris and is looking for the best Europe can offer in the latter area of expertise.

The company also did some research into available talent and noticed that France has quite a reputation in AI research. LeChun, who is said to be a renowned AI researcher, said that one of the key areas AI scientists in the country are focusing on include deep learning and computer vision.

Facebook is said to have already hired six researchers and is looking to hire around 25 more next year. The main focus Facebook is keen on researching into links to image tagging, predictions and face recognition. Aside from the latter, Facebook is also working on their own virtual reality projects and I bet you get really excited when you see the possibilities of merging both research fields.

However, Facebook is not the only company interested in AI. Google, Amazon and other tech companies are researching and looking to acquire AI talented individuals. They may not research the same AI related topics such as Facebook, but they do work on researching methods of processing large amounts of data.
