Sr. Computer Vision Scientist

At Compass, we envision a world where the experience of selling or buying a home is simple and pleasant for everyone. Founded in 2012, Compass provides an end-to-end platform that empowers residential real estate agents to deliver exceptional service to their seller and buyer clients, all in service of our mission to help everyone find their place in the world.

About The Team

The Compass Computer Vision (Video and RE/COgnition) team makes it easy for customers to add text, image and video analysis to real estate applications with no machine learning expertise required. With Compass Computer Vision, you can enrich listing descriptions, tag rooms and listings, identify objects and scenes in text, image and video providing immersive virtual tour experiences from physical or creative data sources.

Our team's goal is to disruptively improve customers' experience and business by creating a text, image and video-analysis platform for real estate applications. This includes:

Developing text, image and video-analysis solutions for agents to leverage to grow their business. Agents and their clients can easily understand the problems we are solving, and will share our conviction that these solutions will help them win and serve more clients.
Embracing radical simplicity. We strive to deliver very simple user experiences that enable agents to adopt with as little effort as possible. We also prefer simple and scalable solutions to complex ones.
Not reinventing the wheel. We take pains to benchmark and understand state of the art open source and cloud AI solutions. We use this learning to achieve speed and quality in our work, and leverage existing tools when it makes sense to #MoveFast on behalf of our customers.
Doing rapid prototyping to test ideas with customers. We believe that low cost mockups, hackathons and quick prototypes are invaluable for learning what works. We are not afraid of failed prototypes or ideas that didn’t work when tested with customers, because we believe that even a few amazing wins from our process of rapid iteration will more than compensate for early failures.
Building APIs that are productized, platformized and reusable. We build and own well-designed APIs that can be easily integrated by many Compass applications, and follow the best practices of API design, documentation and support.

About The Role

As a Senior Machine Learning Scientist on the Computer Vision team, you will work closely with engineers, designers, and product managers to invent software prototypes for image classification, object detection, video understanding, rendering, 3D reconstruction technologies in the real estate industry.

Post-doc Position in Medical Image Processing/MRI/AI

dBRAIN is an interdisciplinary initiative within the ‘Digital Futures’ initiative at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm (https://www.digitalfutures.kth.se/research/collaborative-projects). The goal is to better understand neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease. We combine computational modeling, machine learning and topological data analysis to identify causal links among disease biomarkers and disease symptoms. This understanding should improve diagnosis, prediction of the disease progres- sion and suggest better therapies. We are now looking for up to five postdocs. Each selected candidate will work in close collaboration with other PIs in the dBrain consortium, including researchers and clinicians at Karolinska Institute and Karolinska Hospital.

Two of the positions deal with medical imaging and medical image processing: one in image processing of high-dimensional brain imaging data, and one in magnetic resonance elastography in the brain.

Medical imaging modalities such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) often produce high-dimensional image data in vector or tensor format, e.g. diffusion tensor MRI or functional MRI. For the computationally demanding post-processing of such data, we use modern machine learning techniques like convolutional neural networks, graph convolutional networks and reinforcement learning. This project will deal with developing, adapting and applying such techniques to imaging data from patients with neurodegenerative diseases, available to us thanks to our close cooperation with Karolinska Institute.

The workplace will be the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Health Systems, located in Huddinge in Southern Stockholm, next door to Karolinska university hospital Huddinge, a cross-disciplinary research environment focusing equally on engineering excellence and clinical usability.

Deadline for application: 30 April, 2021. Applications can only be made via the link below.

This project will deal with developing, adapting, and applying such techniques to imaging data from patients with neurodegenerative diseases, available to us thanks to our close cooperation with Karolinska Institute.

Requirements
A doctoral degree or an equivalent foreign degree, obtained within the last three years prior to the application deadline (With some exceptions for special reasons such as periods of sick or parental leave, kindly indicate if such reason exists in your resume).
The candidate must have a strong background in at least one of the following areas: neuroimaging including connectomics, medical image processing, machine learning or a similar subject. Proficiency in English orally and in writing is required to present and publish research results.

We prefer a candidate with:
Strong research qualifications
Good programming skills, in particular with libraries used for deep learning
Collaborative abilities
Experience of working in a cross-disciplinary setting

PhD Position at KCL: Fairness in AI for Cardiac Imaging

The subject of ‘fairness’ in artificial intelligence (AI) is a relatively new but fast-growing research field. It refers to assessing AI algorithms for potential bias based on demographic characteristics such as race, and the development of algorithms to address this bias. With AI models starting to be deployed in the real world it is seen as essential that its benefits are shared equitably according to race, gender and other demographic characteristics, and so efforts to ensure fairness of deployed models have generated much interest and some controversy (e.g. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-55164324). Most applications to date have been in computer vision, although some work in healthcare has started to emerge.

AI-based quantification of cardiac structure and function is also an active research area, and the success of AI in this field has meant that it is currently moving towards wider clinical translation. At the same time, it has long been well understood that cardiac structure and function, as well as the mechanisms leading to cardiovascular disease, vary according to demographic characteristics such as gender and race. Therefore, it is surprising that no work to date has investigated potential bias in AI models for cardiac image analysis. The aim of this project is to investigate this possibility, with a focus on cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), as well as to develop novel tools for mitigating the bias, thus creating fairer tools for clinical use.

Candidates for this position are expected to have strong computational skills, experience in or a desire to learn about AI and machine learning as well as a commitment to advancing the fairness of AI algorithms in healthcare.

Eligibility criteria:

Candidates who meet the eligibility requirements for Home (UK) Fee status will be eligible to apply for this project. Home students will be eligible for a full UKRI award, including fees and stipend, if they satisfy the UKRI criteria below, including residency requirements. To be classed as a Home student, candidates must meet the following criteria:

be a UK National (meeting residency requirements), or
have settled status, or
have pre-settled status (meeting residency requirements), or
have indefinite leave to remain or enter.

Because this is a manufacturing facility you should also be prepared to document any changes to software running in the production environment and review the changes during meetings with internal stakeholders. In this position you would be responsible for design/selection of algorithms and implementation in software of those algorithms for analysis of images from inspection, registration and critical dimension measurement tools.

Qualifications
Candidate must possess a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering or Science discipline such as Physics, Material Science. A PhD degree is preferred but not necessarily required.
Minimum of 2 years of experience in C/C++, with both Linux and windows development environments.
