PhD Computer Scientist (Machine Learning), Vision Systems Group
SRI Internationals Center for Vision Technologies offers end-to-end machine learning solutions that translate into real-world applications. Our scientists have pioneered real-time, real-world systems in multimodal (text, audio, and vision) analytics, 3D scene understanding, object recognition, and activity recognition. We continue today with fundamental research addressing open problems in machine learning and AI such as explainability, robustness to adversarial attacks and lifelong learning. We are building scalable and adaptive cognitive systems, to enable analysis with unprecedented speed and precision.
We are looking for a creative and energetic research scientist with a strong academic and practical background in machine learning. A successful candidate needs to demonstrate the ability of conducting state-of-the-art research, preferably in the areas of lifelong learning, robust machine learning, explainable AI. The goal of the research is to develop end-to-end systems in applications for imaging, vision and other sensing domains. The right candidate will possess a strong technical background and software development understanding methods for working across different programs and teams. You must be able to thrive and succeed in a fast- paced research environment. Maturity, innovation, design judgment and the ability to be a team player are essential to success in this role.
Support structured research (algorithm and system) on machine learning. Support operational prototype developments and investigate their deployment in real world operations.
Support the development of exploring novel solutions for autonomous and cognitive systems to the area of computer vision, computational sensing, computing, and related areas.
Support development of proposals targeting future government, commercial, and internal funding opportunities.
Develop software under robust and agile methods, including design, documentation and revision control practices.
Support development of new intellectual property within government, commercial, and internally funded programs.
