Internship: Visuomotor Modelling for Learning Robots

Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States · DA · 1297 expand job description ↓


The Data Analytics group at MERL is seeking a highly motivated intern to work on the development of dynamical models for robot learning. The target applications will be the model and control of real robotic systems with end-to-end type algorithms. The successful candidate will collaborate with MERL researchers to develop and implement new modelling techniques in high dimensional space (e.g. image space) to be used in a Reinforcement Learning framework, conduct experiments on the robots and achieve scientific contributions for publications and/or patents. Ideal candidate would be senior PhD student with experience in one or more of the following areas: machine learning modelling techniques (such as Gaussian Processes, Deep Learning) and Reinforcement Learning. Strong programming skills in Python and familiarity with ROS are expected. Previous experience in working with robotics platforms and in computer vision projects is a plus.

Research Areas: Artificial Intelligence, Data Analytics, Machine Learning, Robotics
