Job Openings:
IBM: DVS-Smart Surveillance Openings
 
The following job openings  are for the research and development of the IBM Smart Surveillance Offerings, a joint project between IBM Global Technology Services and IBM Research.  The openings are effective immediately and are expected to be filled by end of Sept 2007.
 
Digital Video Surveillance: Computer Vision / Pattern Recognition Scientist
Positions Open: Multiple, include both technical leadership and hands on research & development.
 
IBM Global Technology Services in conjunction with IBM Research is seeking to hire a highly self-motivated PhDs to research and develop video analytics algorithms.  The scientists will be working in close conjunction with a team of support software engineers. The role of the scientist will be do develop video analysis and pattern recognition algorithms, test and validate the results on video data from various customer scenarios.  Specifically, the algorithms deal with, object detection, tracking, classification, calibration, multi-camera tracking, video indexing, video searching, face capture and recognition, learning, class adaptation, neural networks, ada-boost algorithms etc.
 
Successful candidates will have significant experience developing and testing real-world algorithms for video surveillance.   The ability to demonstrate previous work on realistic video clips is critical.  Candidates must have broad aptitude of innovation and demonstrate creative approaches to solving problems.  The ability to independently develop algorithms for video analytics is critical.
 
Both fresh PhDs and PhDs with industry experience will be considered.
Candidates will be working on the IBM Services Offerings based on S3 technology from IBM Research.  www.research.ibm.com/s3.  Salary will be commensurate with experience and skills and competitive with the industry.
 
 
 
Requirements
PhD in Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition with specialization in surveillance video processing.
5 years experience in C/C++ programming
5+ years experience in architecting and developing object oriented software systems in C++
Experience in the video surveillance industry is highly beneficial
 
 
Digital Video Surveillance: Vision Algorithm Performance Evaluation Leader
IBM Global Technology Services in conjunction with IBM Research is seeking to hire a highly self-motivated PhDs for leading the performance evaluation of video analysis, computer vision and pattern recognition algorithms which are applied to smart video surveillance applications.  Job responsibilities will include, specifying test sets, developing evaluation metrics, leading the implementation of software system for performance measurement. The candidate is also expected to lead the development of standards activity in the industry thru IEEE and ACM to quantify the performance of video surveillance analysis algorithms.  The candidate will be expected to lead a team to evaluate and certify the performance of algorithms which are destined for customer deployments. 
The candidate will also play a significant role in specifying the next generation of algorithms and will work with the vision scientists and software developers to ensure the improvement in performance of the system
