Semantic Segmentation of Video Summer Internship

internships | Palo Alto, CA | Full Time

Job Description

Deep Semantic Segmentation of Activity Demonstrations

About the Job

​The position

  • PARC’s machine learning group develops interactive applications powered by machine learning techniques which can cooperate with humans to achieve real-world tasks. Currently we are developing a field coach that can visually recognize situations and user intentions in the real world and provide assistance to users through directions and augmented reality overlays. We have tested the framework on an application that helps users configure features, perform regular maintenance and repair faults in printing devices and are currently expanding to other applications. The project provides a stimulating environment to work with an interdisciplinary team that combines deep computer vision, probabilistic reasoning, natural language dialog management and augmented reality.  

  • We are looking for summer interns interested in exploring the automated extraction of procedural knowledge from video demonstrations. Within this space there are several subproblems including segmentation of video, generalization of video trajectories, and semantic labeling.

  • Interns will have the chance to develop algorithms on our internal GPU servers, deploy them on augmented reality systems and publish in leading venues.


  • PhD Candidate in Computer Science, EE or Related field

  • Demonstrated experience applying novel deep learning based computer vision methods to object detection, video segmentation, semantic labeling and / or captioning work

  • Interest in scientific research and publication with track record of publication


  • Familiarity with Anaconda/Python and Keras/Tensorflow or pytorch frameworks


Intern benefits include 401K, Relocation and Holidays
