Machine intelligence recruited to defend our planet.
Applied Research Accelerator: Mavericks Lab
Mavericks Lab is looking for Planetary Scientists and Data Scientists with a passion for machine learning to develop breakthrough applications for planetary defense.
The program will be hosted at NASA Ames and SETI Institute (the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) in Silicon Valley for 6 weeks this Summer, where three teams will work in parallel mentored by senior experts from both academia, NASA and the private sector.
Mavericks Lab is an experimental new tool in NASA’s innovation portfolio that places emphasis on inter-disciplinary approaches, rapid iteration and teamwork to bridge knowledge gaps useful to the Space Program - in this case the Asteroid Grand Challenge.
Applications are still open for both Contributors and Mentors for this year’s Mavericks Lab.
Contributors will be paid for their time and be offered job interviews with Maverick Lab partners in the tech industry.
Applications close on the 3rd of April 2016.
