Join IBM team !

NLP/Deep Learning Expert for the Debater team (Project Debater)
Do you want to be part of IBM’s latest AI Grand Challenge? To influence how computers interact with people to help them make better decisions?
Our team is developing Project Debater, the first AI system that can debate humans on complex topics

We are making scientific breakthroughs and developing core technologies that will facilitate intelligent debate, and help people make evidence-based decisions when the answers aren’t black-and-white. In development since 2012, Project Debater is IBM’s next big milestone for AI, following previous breakthroughs like Deep Blue (1996/1997) and Watson on Jeopardy! (2011).
But the ability to debate is just the beginning. We are developing next generation language understanding and computational argumentation technologies that will drive use cases related to deep research on topics and decision making.

We are seeking a researcher to join the team. The ideal candidate should have strong expertise and hands-on experience in the areas of natural language processing and/or deep learning. They must also have a proven publication record and the ability to carry out world-class research. The researcher should also have programming and system development skills and should be able to deploy software individually and as part of an extended team.

If you are interested to join a dynamic group of great researches, working together to push the frontiers of intelligent systems, this is the job for you!
