Machine Learning Summer Internship

Machine Learning Summer Internship
Boston Dynamics is seeking Machine Learning Interns for the summer of 2019 to build perception systems for object detection, classification, and localization. To be successful here you’ll need to be able to make the right design decisions and demonstrate robust, interpretable results on advanced mobile robots. We work in a build it - break it - fix it environment, so expect to test early and test often. Well qualified candidates will be working toward a PhD in Computer Science or a related field, and have prior work that demonstrates an ability to creatively apply modern machine learning algorithms to real-world perception data.

US Citizenship or Permanent Residence Required

Required skills:

  • Comfortable writing and debugging in C++ and Python
  • Familiarity with available machine learning toolkits (e.g. Tensorflow) and architectures (e.g. YOLO)
  • Relevant coursework in theory and application of machine learning and perception techniques
  • Strong interest in the intersection of deep learning and robotics
  • Strong communication skills

Desired skills:

  • Academic or industrial experience applying machine learning algorithms to real-world 3-D perception data
  • Experience using data from actual sensor packages, including RGB cameras, stereo vision, and LIDAR
  • Ability to debug machine learning implementations and make intelligent recommendations on improvements, from base architecture to inputs to training data
Candidate for a PhD in Computer Science or related field; preferably one year from graduation
