Here are the links to the *premium* AI/Computer Vision jobs at the top FAANG companies
Today is the beginning of the top Computer Vision conference IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition. The conference is traditionally generously sponsored by large corporations for which it creates a good opportunity to promote themselves and also to hire the best experts in the field. Usually, it looks like an expo with companies’ booths, merchandise, demos, and other joys of life. This year, however, due to the well-known reasons, that’s all was replaced by the scarce pages on the CVPR website.
More importantly, each company traditionally creates a CVPR-dedicated landing page on its own website, where it presents published works, presentation schedules, plans on how their research will conquer the world, and besides other things — unique job openings, direct contacts, or forms for CV collection. Such openings often may be different from those presented at the main careers page for a wide audience and typically follow a completely different (prioritized) review process. Participation in the conference, in this case, plays the role of an initial filter, passing which you attract attention you may not attract when apply in a usual way.
Well, that‘s great, but what does this have to do with me?
Below you can find the above-mentioned links, following which *anyone* can benefit from this lifehack, regardless of paying for the conference. I don’t say you should do anything like that, I’ll just leave them here and won’t look. (These are not referral links, I don’t make any profit of them.)

I do not support the attitude of the conferences to take money from the participants — the researchers themselves who create the conference with their content, and who allow the organizers to take money from sponsors with their presence. Furthermore, after paying $500–1000 for a “participation” (presenting their work to others) all the researchers get are only coffee-breaks and a venue. Even without lunch, not to mention the travel cost and housing.
Such a modest set may well be covered by sponsor companies and the audience who consumes the content but should not rely on the “stars who perform on the stage” themselves.
This year, the humiliations exceeded all the expectations. Holding the entire event in remote allowed to reduce organization to a single web-platform, access to which (to present your work, again) may cost you $550. Apple cries seeing such a business opportunity they missed.

All I do is just an attempt to lower this absolutely meaningless paywall.
By the way, anyone with money can register at the conference regardless of the qualification, and hence access those links, so there is no any ethical obstacle for you to use them. Worth noting, all the materials like papers and video-presentations for which you may think you would have to pay are openly accessible. Please enjoy this week of presentations and fresh ideas!
