Machine Learning, AI Research Internship (FALL)
Covariant
Emeryville, CA
THE COMPANY
Our mission is to build the Covariant Brain, a universal AI to give robots the ability to see, reason and act on the world around them. Bringing AI from research in the lab to the infinite variability and constant change of our customer’s real-world operations requires new ideas, approaches and techniques.

Success in the real world requires a team that represents that world: diversity of backgrounds, points of view, and experiences. Our common denominator: ambitious expectations, love of learning, empathy for those around us, and a team-first mindset.

THE ROLE
The Covariant Brain is a Universal AI Platform that powers all robotic applications at Covariant. The Brain is a collection of state-of-the-art models, algorithms, and APIs that enable all intelligent behavior of the robot, from perception to 3d object understanding, grasp sampling, motion planning, and control. 

We are seeking talented and motivated interns to join our AI Research team. As an AI Research Intern, you will work directly under the guidance of a research mentor, contributing to cutting-edge projects in the areas of artificial intelligence, robotics, and machine learning. This is an opportunity to gain hands-on experience with working on real-world applications and expand your knowledge while having the potential to transform and leave a lasting impact on our company's technology stack.

YOU HAVE

    • Strong knowledge and experience in any of the following areas: modern computer vision (including but not limited to depth estimation, segmentation, occupancy estimation, NERFs), large language models, motion planning, dynamics modeling, robotics simulation
    • Knowledge and experience in training and analyzing ML models and robotics applications (in simulation, or in the real world)
    • A solid mathematical and statistical foundation with an understanding of how to apply ML concepts (e.g. training, optimizers, regression, classification, etc.)
    • Proficiency in Python and experience with tensor libraries (e.g. NumPy, PyTorch, TensorFlow)
    • Clear communication, organization, and collaboration

YOU WILL RECEIVE

    • A unique opportunity to work on innovative projects with a lasting impact on the company’s technology stack
    • Mentorship from experienced researchers in the field of AI and robotics
    • A collaborative and inclusive environment that values diversity and promotes growth
    • Free lunch and dinner every day

    • Working knowledge of Linux, SQL, and web (e.g. HTML, Javascript, etc.)
    • A solid mathematical and statistical foundation with an understanding of how to apply ML concepts (e.g. training, optimizers, regression, classification, etc.)
    • Demonstrated strong problem-solving ability: analyzing real-world problems and formulating solutions, iterating and formulating, shipping, and making an impact on products for customers
    • Clear communication and collaboration across teams

NICE TO HAVES

    • Trained, deployed, and analyzed ML model or robotics applications in production
    • Strong understanding of the state of the art in Computer Vision and Robotics literature
    • Experience working with complex data infra and highly concurrent SW systems
SALARY RANGE
Base pay is one element of our total rewards package which may also include comprehensive benefits and equity etc., depending on eligibility. The annual base salary range for this position is from $170,000 to $225,000.
