SENIOR RESEARCH SUPPORT ASSOCIATE , Media Lab , to develop artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms from biomedical imaging datasets. Understanding mechanisms used by emergent deep neural network (DNNs) architectures to learn and classify medical information from multispectral images will be the key focus. Will work closely with Dr. Pratik Shah, students, and research staff within the Health 0.0 research program at the Media Lab which brings together life sciences, biotechnology, foundations, universities, patients and health-oriented Media Lab member organizations. Responsibilities include conceptualizing and building tools for visualizing and classifying high dimensional imaging data; developing software tools with applications in data annotation such as labels on images, visualization and explanation of machine learning models, and health diagnostics; leverage existing libraries (e.g., OpenCV, Theano, Caffe, and TensorFlow); and supporting other group members, Ph.D. students, and undergraduate researchers.
This is a one year appointment with possibility of extension based on funding and research priorities.
