The Algorithms, Analytics and Augmented Intelligence Research lab at NOKIA Bell Labs is doing cutting edge research in the space of Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence. The newly created Applied ML Research department in Paris-Saclay, is looking for a leader to head the department and be responsible in delivering its mission: to design disruptive ML/AI algorithms and develop / deploy Proof of Concepts (PoC) that can change the game in existing as well as create new industries. We innovate in the following areas:


1.     Human augmentation systems – the team develops real time ML/AI systems at the intersection of human and machine interaction. We developed techniques and wearable devices to communicate with machines and augment human intelligence via gestures (EMG), video / audio and we are building smart biometric systems that help athletes perform their best (Alex Thompson Racing).

2.     Environment intelligence - the team develops algorithms that make machines understand live video scenes and natural language audio streams. We work on object detection, instance segmentation, face recognition, NLP and create new approaches where symbolic representations of scenes can be manipulated to extract meaning, common sense and guide actions for agents active in the scene.

3.     Cloud Robotics – we are reimagining drone-based logistics and factory robots that communicate via next generation networks to edge cloud GPU resources that help them execute their tasks.   

4.     ML Systems – we understand that automation and tool development is ultimately linked to ML research and we are active participant in the open source communities under Linux Foundation and Deep Learning Foundation to help engineers develop & deploy better ML systems faster.


You will be working with and leading researchers and practitioners that work across the funnel from concept to implementation to develop innovative applications that involve amongst others real devices developed in our Labs such as the Eyebud, the Sleeve and others (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9dhN2dVl3k ).

·      You are a Master’s or Ph.D-level computer scientist or software engineer/scientist from other quantitative fields (e.g. EE, Physics).

·      You have at least 5 years experience in leading research / prototype development teams.

·      You have a working knowledge of major ML / RL frameworks and strong technical aptitude that allows you to learn new technologies quickly across the domains we work on.

·      You are a team player with excellent written and verbal communication skills – you are expected to be part of a global multidisciplinary team.
