Zurich, Switzerland
The AR/VR team at Meta is helping people around the world come together and connect through world-class Augmented and Virtual Reality hardware and software. We are developing the future of AR and VR, bringing products to consumers that transform entertainment and social experiences. XR Insight Scene team explores, develops, and delivers new cutting-edge technologies for 3D semantic understanding for diverse scenes that serve as the foundation of future AR/VR products. We are seeking a curious and talented Computer Vision/Machine Learning Research Intern to solve large-scale vision problems in 3d scene understanding. Our team is addressing a variety of technical challenges in the areas of ML for 3D modeling, 3D surface representation, semantic scene understanding, weakly-, semi- and self-supervised learning for scene understanding. We're looking for candidates who share a passion for exploring and solving complex, challenging problems at the intersection of CV/ML and 3D semantic understanding.
