VIEW JOBS 10/4/2020 12:00:00 AM 2021-01-02T00:00 Facebook Reality Labs focuses on delivering Facebook's vision through Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). Enabling compelling user experiences on Virtual and Augmented Reality devices requires innovation and co-design across all layers of stack from novel algorithms to custom silicon. The FRL team is driving the state of the art forward with breakthrough work in computer vision, speech, virtual assistant, machine learning, mixed reality, graphics, displays, sensors, and new ways to map the human body among many others. We are seeking exceptional interns with a background in Deep Learning, Computer Vision and/or Computational Photography to join our On-device AI team. This team focuses on designing efficient Deep Learning-based solutions to enable compelling user experiences on mobile AR/VR systems, with particular focus on enabling on-device execution for latency, power efficiency and privacy. The ideal candidate will have practical experience in developing deep learning techniques to address challenging problems and achieve high accuracy under deployment constraints such as limited compute resources, execution latency. We are specifically looking for candidates to work in areas including but not limited to Real-Time Image Enhancements, Neural View Synthesis, AI based Camera ISP, Realtime Video Instance Segmentation, Multi-task CV algorithms etc. In this position, you will get exposure to the full stack from user experiences, algorithms down to hardware execution blocks. You will work with the domain experts in vision and image processing aspects of Virtual/Augmented Reality to understand the challenges and build state-of-the-art networks to tackle them and then work with the software/hardware team to deploy these solutions on-device. Our internships are twelve (12) - sixteen (16) weeks long and we have various start dates throughout the year.
