Mountain View, CA

Lab Overview

The Samsung AI Center (SAIC) within Samsung Research America (SRA) leads at the forefront of innovation in creating intelligent and interactive machines building upon an ecosystem that is user-centric rather than device-centric. The success of AI will depend on how well devices understand their users – and how well devices empower users.  SAIC takes on grand scientific and engineering challenges in machine intelligence.

Position Summary:

The AI center at Samsung Research America (SRA), located in Mountain View, CA, is looking for an outstanding and highly self-motivated researcher/engineer. We are looking for candidates with machine learning and deep learning background. You will work with a team of research scientists and engineers tackling real-world problems involving Samsung’s Artificial Intelligence initiatives. You will be involved in very promising team projects with talented people at Samsung. You will benefit a lot by working in a fun and creative environment. The AI research center is a key part of Samsung’s global R&D effort and aims to have influence on future Samsung products reaching hundreds of millions of users worldwide.

Position Responsibilities:

  • Develop and implement novel deep learning/reinforcement learning algorithms for a variety of artificial intelligence problems, including semantic understanding of multimodal data (visual+voice, sensor+voice, visual+sensor, etc.), natural language processing, visual understanding, audio and speech signal processing, etc.
  • Apply machine learning algorithms onto various domains (e.g., AR, robotics, health, home)
  • Generate creative solutions (patents) and publish research results in top conferences (paper)

Required Skills:
