Job Description

Introduction

IBM’s Brain-Inspired Computing team at IBM Research – Almaden has built a first-of-a-kind modular, scalable, non-von Neumann, ultra-low power, cognitive computing architecture (TrueNorth) and associated end-to-end software ecosystem. We are building state-of-the-art digital neuromorphic chips and systems (large-scale and mobile) to solve real-time sensory problems.

Your Role and Responsibilities

We seek team members with proven hardware backgrounds who know a bit about machine learning. Ideal candidates will have expertise in several of the following areas:

Neuromorphic hardware design:

+ VLSI design including logic design (synchronous and/or asynchronous), physical design, integration, verification, and validation

+ Printed Circuit Board (PCB) design/debug, Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) development/debug

+ Large-scale neuromorphic system design

Neuromorphic Algorithms and Applications:

+ Neural Networks, Deep Learning, Convolutional Networks, Machine Learning, Pattern Recognition, Statistical Learning, or Probabilistic Graphical Models

+ Mapping neural networks to custom hardware

+ Experience developing, testing, and deploying systems for image processing, speech, robotics, medical imaging, or other real-world applications

+ Information theoretical system models, high dimensional non-linear dynamical systems, complex adaptive systems

Software/Firmware:

+ Experience with TensorFlow / Caffe / PyTorch / DIGITS

+ Parallel programming using tools such as Message Passing Interface (MPI), Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA), OpenMP

+ Expert level programming skills in C++, Python

+ Real-time embedded software/firmware development, Linux kernel/device drivers, system level simulation and optimization

+ Software maintenance and source control (Subversion, Git, ClearCase), bug tracking (Jira, Bugzilla), and collaboration (Confluence, MoinMoin)

Required Technical and Professional Expertise

+ At least 1 year experience with VHDL or Verilog

+ At least 1 year experience in Python and C++ At least 1 course in machine learning

+ Basic knowledge in large scale neural networks

Preferred Technical and Professional Expertise

+ At least 2 year experience with VHDL or Verilog and expert knowledge of modern hardware development tools

+ At least 2 years experience in machine learning

+ At least 2 years experience in large scale neural networks
