Senior Machine Learning Research Scientist, Prediction
Santa Monica, California, United States
The Motional Santa Monica office is located in the heart of 3rd Street Promenade at 1453 3rd Street. With all the modern amenities for productive work and play, it is steps away from the popular pedestrian outdoor shopping area and Santa Monica beach.
The Machine Learning department is led by Oscar Beijbom. Our Machine Learning team, authors of nuScenes (https://www.nuscenes.org), PointPillars (https://arxiv.org/abs/1812.05784), and PointPainting (http://arxiv.org/abs/1911.10150). The ML Team is doubling in size in 2021, and we are adding engineers and researchers to join us in our mission to launch a level 4/5 autonomous taxi system.
What You’ll be Doing:
Design and deploy deep neural networks that predict the future motion of objects around our self-driving car.
Work closely with the Planning team to integrate your motion prediction models with our state-of-the-art driving system.
Conduct experiments, write reports, and file patents.
Develop core deep learning codebase for efficient training and testing pipelines.
What We’re Looking For:
Masters or PhD in Machine Learning, Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, Physics or a related field with 3+ years of relevant experience
Experience designing, training, analyzing, and deploying neural networks for at least one of the following applications: Motion prediction, Behavioral prediction, Intent inference, Object detection, Image segmentation, Sensor fusion, Tracking, Active learning, Anomaly detection, Multitask learning, Network compression, Reinforcement learning, Unsupervised learning
Fluency in Python or C++.
Experience with PyTorch or other deep learning frameworks.
Experience deploying deep learning models in a production environment.
Proven track record of publications in relevant conferences (CVPR, ICML, NeurIPS, ICCV, ICLR…).
Experience in automotive or other real-time and embedded systems.
Motional is making driverless vehicles a safe, reliable, and accessible reality.
Our team is commercializing a world-class driverless system. The Motional team is behind some of the industry’s largest leaps forward in the last decade, including the first fully-autonomous cross-country drive in the U.S, the launch of the world’s first robotaxi pilot, and operation of the world’s most-established public robotaxi fleet. Strategically formed by Hyundai Motor Groupand Aptiv, Motional is fundamentally changing how people move through their lives.
