Applied scientists discover new research problems, develop novel
models, design careful experiments and generally advance the state
of the art in AI. At Salesforce, the research team is committed to
collaboration 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 Platform,
they may also focus exclusively on publications. We believe that

sharpen the research questions we study, and, in turn, scientific
breakthroughs can spawn entirely new applications. With this in

immediate path to production, others that may not find an
application for several years. Applied scientists have the
opportunity to switch between pure and applied research.
