Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning Research Engineer

Job brief

Human behaviour understanding is a key element to automate solutions for

  • safety
  • control and monitoring of manufacturing tasks in industrial facilities
  • e-learning
  • assistive solutions for elderly or handicapped
  • security solutions among others

Human behaviour understanding is a complex task which requires multimodal information, such as data captured from sensors and prior knowledge of the common activities in such contexts.

The candidate will join the Gestoos Computer Vision R&D team and will lead the research and development of new solutions for human behaviour and action recognition leveraging on Natural Language Processing inputs. Main goals will be to exploit NLP techniques in order to reduce the need of large amounts of annotated visual data in human behaviour and action recognition tasks, enabling semi-supervised and unsupervised solutions.


  • Prototype and develop deep learning driven computer vision and NLP algorithms to address tasks related (but not limited) to action recognition and behaviour recognition
  • Develop tools to assist with algorithm development and testing


  • PhD in Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning or NLP
  • High class University degree in computer science, electrical engineering or similar field of study
  • Previous experience in developing classification, prediction and regression algorithms
  • Proficiency in deep learning frameworks (e.g. The ano, Caffe, Torch, TensorFlow or CNTK)
  • Fluency in C++ and Python. -Object-oriented design and implementation
  • Experience analysing and improving software performance
  • Strong track record of academic or industrial research, with an emphasis on solving real-world problems
  • Motivated and proactive with a strong sense of teamwork
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Fluent in verbal and written English communication
