Frequently Asked Questions
What sort of candidates are you looking for?
We are looking for candidates who possess a keen interest in the area of machine learning and data science. We believe that candidates can come from any area of specialisation, and our only requirement is that you are a Singaporean with a university degree. Beyond that, demonstrated statistical fundamentals and programming ability will be helpful for the technical tests, but a keen learning attitude will be the most important to carry you through the programme.
What will be covered in the programme?
We will begin with some structured coursework involving programming, modelling and deployment. Following which, apprentices will be assigned to projects to hone their skills in-depth, specific to each project.
Generally, you will be doing the following:
- Deploy Machine Learning applications in line with industry best practices
- Select, train and tune Machine Learning algorithms
- Design and build Data Pipelines and Infrastructures for AI Use Cases
Do I have to pay?
No. The apprentices will receive a stipend between SGD$3,500 to $5,500 depending on your experience level.
Do I need to have any programming background?
We do not require that you have any education and work experience related to computing. However, most of our everyday programme work, including technical assessment, require programming. Hence, you will need to know how to programme.
Do I need to have all the above criteria to apply?
The above criteria are recommended guidelines, but it is not necessary to have all the above mentioned skills. Applying once does not exclude you from applying again, so do it give it a try if you are up to the challenge!
What is the outcome of this programme?
Candidates can expect to be equipped in some or all of the following skills: data modelling/tuning, data engineering, data product-related software engineering, cloud applications. It ranges between individuals, but candidates can be adequately prepared in fields of data science, engineering and consultancies.
Will I get a job after?
While AI Singapore encourage our industry partners to source for job placing, it is ultimately your responsibility to find a job most suitable for yourself.
will there be a next round of applications?
Yes, we run 3 iterations of the programme every year, exactly 4 months apart. Do apply again after 3 months if you are unavailable to make it to the current batch.
