This position is on the Science team, the team tasked with creating and refining Affectiva’s technology. We are a group of individuals with backgrounds in machine learning, computer vision, speech processing and affective computing.
We are interested in hiring an intern with interest, experience and expertise in either: 1) building deep learning based models for predicting emotions from face or speech; or 2) building deep learning infrastructure and data processing pipelines.
We are very interested in candidates who have hands-on experience tackling these subproblems; for example, if you have build deep learning models for predicting audio or video based targets; or collected audio-video data either via crowdsourcing tasks or by leveraging the large quantities of user-generated tags (e.g., hashtags) available on the public web; or used machine learning based approaches for automatic data annotation, collaborative learning, or other innovative semi-supervised and unsupervised approaches.
The candidate will work closely with members of the Science team, the team tasked with creating and refining Affectiva’s technology. The Science team is a group of individuals with backgrounds in machine learning, computer vision, speech processing and affective computing. The Science team does everything from initial prototyping of state-of-the art algorithms to producing models which can be included in our cloud and mobile products.
Building data fetching and processing pipeline for multimodal deep learning experiments.
Running a multitude of data modeling experiments related to audio or video based emotion classification.
Clearly communicate your implementations, experiments, and conclusions.
