    ID: 498857…

    Type: Researchers

    Location: Atlanta, GA

    Categories: Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Software Development/Design, Data Analytics/Science

    Project/Unit Description

    The Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning Engineer (AI/ML) position in the Applied Embedded Systems (AES) division of the Electronic Systems Laboratory (ELSYS) will support multiple research products and projects in concert with development teams who are building complex, multi-faceted embedded and electronic systems. AES is predominantly focused on the research, development, testing, and deployment of embedded electronic and electromechanical systems. These systems provide our sponsors with technological solutions in the fields of Electronic Warfare (EW), command and control, communications, avionics, entertainment, physiological monitoring, and other applications.

    Job Purpose

    The AI/ML Engineer develops AI/ML algorithms and supports the development of cloud computing or heterogeneous distributed computing infrastructure to support the deployment of AI/ML applications. Additionally, the AI/ML Engineer performs research in the mathematical foundations and frameworks for nonlinear systems characterized by time-varying and emerging dynamics of evolving or adaptive systems. The AI/ML researcher works at the leading edge of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Genetic Programming (GP), Computer Vision (CV), and advanced data processing, filtering, and fusion techniques. This work is conducted in high-performance computing and distributed heterogeneous computing environments. The AI/ML Engineer also writes parallel processing programs to deploy ML models developed by the data scientist into more complex systems. The AI/ML Engineer is familiar with state-of-the-art, open-source software frameworks and high-performance computing accelerators for machine learning and leverages the most recent advances in statistical analysis of large data sets (AI/ML) to advance state-of-the-art automated sensor and data processing for a broad range of smart and sensor enabled systems.
