  • Develop, test and deploy state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms
  • Implement deep-learning models and frameworks that can be used in object detection, objecting tracking, matching, scene segmentation, depth estimation, active learning, etc.
  • Drive high-level decisions on perception and classification algorithms
  • Supervise the model development cycle from the prototype stage to field deployment
  • Build machine learning models for data coming from several sensors such as vision, radars, and thermal cameras and evaluate tradeoffs.
  • Develop new methods to improve classification performance and increase processing speed
  • Work with hardware engineers to transition processing from desktop/server class machines to real-time embedded systems.
  • Work with the technical team to help architect and develop data processing and annotation pipelines for continuous system monitoring and improved field operations.
    About you:
