Study and implement approaches drawn from academic literature or in-house design

Evaluate the resulting prototype implementation to test its value in addressing the research goals

Report results to the PI and respond by adapting the prototype to better address research goals

Contribute to presentations and written reports that keep research sponsors up to date on project progress

Prepare prototypes for demonstrations and evaluations by research sponsors. Respond to any last-minute complications to ensure a smooth and successful evaluation

Skills & requirements

BS in computer science or equivalent

Three (3) years or more of industry experience with a minimum of one year in machine learning
