Salesforce Research is pioneering in the field of deep learning, natural language processing and artificial intelligence. At Salesforce, the research team is committed to collaborating with the wider research community; while research scientists have the opportunity to work directly on advancing technologies that customers use as part of the Einstein AI Platform, they may also focus exclusively on high-impact publications. We believe that making substantive progress on hard applications can drive and sharpen the research questions we study, and, in turn, scientific breakthroughs can spawn entirely new applications. With this in mind, the team maintains a portfolio of projects. Research scientists have the freedom to set their own research agenda and move between pure and applied research.
