Facebook reality labs is driving research towards a vision of an always-on AR devices that provide contextually relevant assistance across a variety of tasks. Doing this requires developing novel algorithms and computational models that integrate output from scene/context recognition systems (e.g. computer vision) and human-facing sensor data (e.g. eye-tracking) to infer the AR user’s intent. To this end, we are looking for PhD interns with expertise in developing computational models of human perception and cognition. In this role, you will have the opportunity to collaborate with leading researchers within and outside Facebook. Together, you will apply state-of-the-art computational cognitive science in ecologically realistic settings, use what you learn to advance our understanding of human perception and cognition, and lay the groundwork for the next paradigm for human-focused computing. This internship is sixteen to twenty-six weeks long and we have various start dates throughout the year.
