Senior Research Scientist
Luminoso is expanding its research team, hiring innovative research scientists with applied experience using machine learning to create state-of-the-art techniques in natural language understanding that provide value to our customers. We use the latest techniques in vector-based semantics (including Deep Learning approaches), combined with a powerful knowledge graph, to push the boundaries of computers’ understanding of human language.
IS THIS THE RIGHT PLACE FOR YOU?
You will work with our Software Engineers to discover, invent, and build techniques that work across multiple languages and multiple domains. You stay connected to your research roots as an active contributor to the wider research community, keeping up with the literature and publishing breakthrough results.
Your work will involve modeling both the broad understanding that comes from up to terabytes of natural language data, and the targeted understanding that can be extracted from a smaller number of documents in a particular domain. Problems to be solved include automatically organizing documents into explainable topics, discovering what makes one set of documents different from another, evaluating the correctness of knowledge in a knowledge base, and recognizing the intent of a user who is talking to an automated chat system.
If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, know how to deliver, love to work with data, and long for the opportunity to make computers understand people better in real-world situations, we want to talk with you.
