IBM Research Scientists are charting the future of Artificial Intelligence, creating breakthroughs in quantum computing, discovering how blockchain will reshape the enterprise, and much more. Join a team that is dedicated to applying science to some of today's most complex challenges, whether its discovering a new way for doctors to help patients, teaming with environmentalists to clean up our waterways or enabling retailers to personalize customer service.

Your Role and Responsibilities

Are you interested in shaping the future of AI? IBM is looking for research scientists who are as passionate as we are about artificial intelligence, advancing science, and inventing the next generation of intelligent machines. In the Real-time AI team in Yorktown, we do basic and applied research into novel machine learning and AI models, algorithms and systems for real-time heterogeneous, streaming data sets, including multivariate temporal sensor data streams & recurrent, irregular event data streams from structured and unstructured sources. We have an ambitious AI research agenda to automate the data & process representation at scale from structured data, semantic representation at scale from unstructured data, and to enable learning algorithms including structure, parametric, causal learning, probabilistic reasoning and optimal decision-making.

You will develop and implement innovative real-time AI models and solutions for streaming temporal data sets. It will involve researching into, developing and implementing machine learning models and formulations. You will collaborate with fellow researchers to design and implement libraries for data and model pipelines for various real-time AI objectives including detection, prediction, diagnosis, reasoning and decision-making models. You will write production-quality code, and assume responsibility for data exploration, discovery, experimentation and implementation of deployable models, monitoring run-time performance and retraining. You will research into best of breed machine learning/deep learning models, formulations and algorithms for various kinds of real-time AI problems, best of breed choices for real-time AI and machine learning infrastructure including reusable libraries, and scalable implementations.

As an IBM Researcher, you get to work on the most cutting-edge and exciting projects and interact with the brightest minds. The four key dimensions of an IBM Researcher's contribution are IBM impact, external impact, leadership, and teamwork. We want to bring out the best in you and expect you to do the same to us.
