Boston Dynamics is seeking Machine Learning Researchers that are interested in building perception and adaptive control systems that improve the performance, reliability, and generalizability of robot behaviors. Well-qualified candidates will have a Ph.D. 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 problems. We are particularly interested in candidates with 1) experience using ML for visual perception or 2) experience applying reinforcement learning (RL) to dynamic control tasks. Masters-level candidates with strong experience will also be considered.
Day to day activities include:
* Comfortable writing and debugging C++ and Python Code * Design of relevant feature sets for data collection and training * Experience implementing and debugging ML algorithms * Familiarity with available machine learning toolkits (e.g., Tensorflow) * Experience with applications of machine learning to visual data OR experience applying modern RL algorithms to dynamic control tasks
* Application of machine learning to 3D data sets * Familiarity with cloud-based API's * Experience with robot systems and autonomy * Familiarity with graphics programming
