Job description and requirements:
Internship position at DOCOMO Innovations Inc., Palo Alto, CA 94304.
We are looking for a qualified candidate to work on a self-contained internship project to explore applications of deep learning neural networks to image processing or natural language understanding.
The precise topic of the internship will be determined in discussions with the accepted candidate, but will be about making vector or tensor representation for specific subjects.
We also expect candidates to come up with evaluation methods, improvements to existing methods and speed up training of the model.
Candidates must have a master’s degree or take a master degree course in mathematics, statistics, computer science, or electrical engineering, and must be proficient in programming in Python.
Familiarity with deep learning network architectures (especially CNN/LSTM), and experience in training such models using popular tools (PyTorch, Tensorflow, Keras, etc.) is highly recommended. Experience with processing images/text and exposure to concepts like word2vec/BERT/Siamese Network, etc. is also desirable.
Good communication, teamwork, and presentation skills are also essential.
The selected candidate is expected to work for twelve weeks with members of the AI & Data Analytics Innovation Group at DOCOMO Innovations, Inc.
The selected candidate will be assigned a supervisor from among our experienced staff.
The intern is also expected to present weekly status reports on his/her project progress during the weekly group meetings, and a final written report and oral presentation at the end of the internship period.
For 12 weeks and extension may be considered for any graduated student.
