Zurich, Switzerland
Mobile Vision is seeking Research Intern to join various teams in advancing the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning by making fundamental advances in technologies to help interact with and understand our world. We are seeking individuals passionate in areas such as deep learning, computer vision, generative AI, and machine learning. Our interns have an opportunity to make core algorithmic advances and apply their ideas at an unprecedented scale. Many of our interns publish at top tier conferences such as NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR, CVPR, ICCV, and ECCV. The duration of this internship is typically between 12 to 24 weeks with Summer, Fall, and Winter start dates. We have openings in our Menlo Park, Seattle and Zurich offices. Internships will be awarded on a rolling basis and candidates are encouraged to apply early. Potential research topics: Data-efficient learning: semi-supervised learning, self-training, self-supervised learning, federated learning. Efficient computer vision: Building state-of-the-art efficient computer vision models for classification, object detection, semantic segmentation, depth estimation, etc., through techniques such as novel architecture design, advanced training recipe, neural architecture search, language-supervised learning, transfer learning, etc. 3D computer vision: Scene and object understanding, Depth estimation Generative AI: Diffusion and GAN based image, video and 3D generation Multi-task learning Other emerging research areas
