Job Description

As a Computer Vision Researcher on Intel's Technology Development Analytics and Automation (TD ATA) Image Analysis Systems team you will initiate the design, development, execution and implementation of visual inspection platforms that provide defect detection and measurement capabilities for technology manufacturing process tools in high-volume production.

The position requires application of state-of-the art image processing and analytical methods to detect visual artifacts at a high degree of precision.

Responsibilities will include, but not be limited to:

  • Collaborate with a team of fellow researchers to invent and innovate novel techniques, methods and models that can be put to prime time use in our factories.
  • Investigate feasibility of computer vision techniques including machine learning approaches and concepts to potential solution inventions.
  • Maintains substantial knowledge of state-of-the-art principles and theories and contributes to scientific literature and conferences.


You must possess the below requirements to be initially considered for this position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates. Knowledge and/or experience listed below would be obtained through a combination of your schoolwork and/or classes and/or research and/or relevant previous job and/or internship experiences.

Minimum Requirements:

  • PhD degree in Computer Science or related engineering discipline.

  • 1+ year of experience applying Machine Learning and Computer Vision techniques (using OpenCV) for practical problems and research in image processing.

Preferred Requirements:

1+ year of experience with the following (having more than one will be preferred):

  • Image Processing.

  • C++, Python, MATLAB.

  • Publications in high quality conferences and journals such as CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, PAMI, TIP, etc.

Preferred Machine Learning:

  • Supervised learning algorithms for:

    • Classification: SVM, DT, KNN, Logistic Regression, etc.

    • Ensemble learning: bagging, boosting, etc.

    • One-class classification (OOC). 

    • Outlier detection.

    • Regression

  • Unsupervised learning algorithms for:

    • Clustering (partitional, hierarchical clustering, density based)

    • Dimensionality reduction, features extraction, and features selection.

Preferred Image Processing and Computer Vision:

  • Image matching: registration, normalization.

  • Feature extraction, matching, correction/transformation, distortion correction.

  • Image filtering: spatial domain, Fourier domain. 

  • Advanced filters: adaptive, steerable, etc.

  • Image segmentation:

    • Thresholding, edge detection and linking, region growing.

    • Deformable shapes, active contours, etc.

    • Morphology.

  • Image representation:

    • Basic descriptors: area, minor axis length, major axis length, normalized axis ratio, eccentricity, Fourier descriptors, shape numbers, etc.

    • Binary descriptors: ORB, BRISK, LBP, etc.

    • Advanced descriptors: HoG, SIFT/SURF, GLOH, etc.

  • Object detection/classification (using classical image processing) using connected component analysis, region props filtering.

  • Image/background modeling, change/anomaly detection using image processing.

  • 3D image processing:

    • Change detection in 3D images.

    • Construction and analysis of 3D images.

    • Depth detection in 3D images.

  • Solid understanding of probability, probability distributions, sampling theory.

  • Proven research experience in the domain of image processing and computer vision.
