AI Research Scientist
Company: Modern Intelligence
Posted on: January 16, 2022
Modern Intelligence is seeking an AI Research Scientist to help
lead fundamental research and development into compositional,
hierarchical neural networks and their application to the defense
sector in areas such as sensor fusion, decision making, autonomy,
complex inference, electronic warfare, and more.
Modern is using proprietary advances in information and complexity
theory to build one AI for defense. Our hierarchical approach
provides a dramatic scaling advantage over classical neural
networks, naturally enabling very high accuracy on few-shot
learning for novel problems, and in many cases, the ability to
solve previously-unsolvable problems.
We're looking for an experienced ML practitioner and insightful
theorist who believes that there are fundamental, foundational
improvements in the field just waiting to be discovered, and that
the current incentives in the industry, towards incremental
improvements and away from real innovation, create an enormous
opportunity for smart people to rethink how we do ML. You'll join
us in improving our compression and NAS algorithms, you'll bring
your own theoretical contributions to the table, you'll help
communicate with our platform engineering -team to turn our ideas
into practical reality, and you'll get your hands dirty with
theoretically-motivated experiments and real-world problems. As an
early hire, you will have the opportunity and active encouragement
to grow into leadership and supervisory roles as the company
PhD or equivalent experience in Computer Science, Data Science,
Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, or related field. Candidates
still in their graduate program will be considered.
Strong proficiency in at least one popular ML framework, e.g.
Tensorflow or Pytorch. The ideal candidate will have hand-rolled
their own ML training environment, even if in a very limited
Strong proficiency in coding and data science.
Proficiency in Probability Theory and other mathematical areas
relevant to ML. The ideal candidate will have strong proficiency in
multiple areas of mathematics.
A demonstrable track record of foundational thinking in ML. The
ideal candidate will have a publication record demonstrating
relevant areas of interest and the ability to make non-incremental
Experience with computer vision models, natural language models,
multimodal data and/or sensor fusion.
Excellent communication skills, and the ability to work effectively
in a team.
If you're a brilliant high-level thinker, and don't want to waste
your career on incremental advances; if you're interested in
working with an equally brilliant, dedicated, and close-knit team
to develop groundbreaking approaches to ML; and if you want to see
those approaches turn into real-world products that are orders of
magnitude better than anything else on the market; then come work
