Essential Responsibilities:

As a machine-learning researcher, you will work with a world-class multidisciplinary team to develop and deploy scalable predictive, reasoning and data mining algorithms and software for diverse industrial applications, including anomaly detection, diagnostics, prognostics, forecasting and optimization on massive multidimensional sensor time series, video, imagery and text data from Jet Engines, Wind Turbines, Power Plants, Locomotives, Oil & Gas equipment, Healthcare Machines and much more.

Collaborate with senior machine learning researchers and world-class multidisciplinary teams to address supervised and unsupervised leaning problems in an applied research environment. Develop & deploy modern machine learning, artificial intelligence and statistical methods (Deep Learning, clustering and classification algorithms, Bayesian models, transfer learning, active learning etc.) for finding patterns/models from industrial data, e.g. operation data monitored from industrial machines, processes, environments, etc. Familiarity with large data sets, cloud based development and deployment, open source practices and frameworks and experience in putting intelligent applications in production are desirable.

In this role you will:

+ Provide technical execution to design of machine learning algorithms/solutions to solve industrial problems at GE

+ Determine methodologies needed; apply such methodologies (e.g. Neural Nets, Deep Learning, Active Learning, Random Forest, Bayesian methods, etc.) on monitoring, classification, prognostics, optimization and related research domains

+ Define data needs, evaluate data quality, perform and critique appropriate statistical analyses using software such as Python, MATLAB, R and/or Scala. Explore, determine & develop technical approaches to be used and apply them on major challenges

+ Interface closely with GE Business counterparts to understand/define requirements, domain knowledge/models, and data needs

+ Effectively communicate technical analyses and results

+ Support proposals to respond to internal as well as external funding opportunities

Qualifications/Requirements:

+ Doctorate Degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, Applied Statistics, Operations Research or in Engineering

+ Foundation in theories underlying machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques

+ Ability to apply theoretical or experiential knowledge on machine learning to solve industrial problems

+ Experience in developing machine learning packages with modern programming languages e.g. Python, R, Scala, Java, MATLAB etc.

+ Must be willing to take a drug test and submit to a background investigation as part of the selection process

+ Must be willing to travel

+ Legal authorization to work in the U.S. is required; we will not sponsor individuals at the Masters level for employment visas, now or in the future, for this job opening

+ Must be willing to work out of an office located in Niskayuna, NY

+ Must be 18 years or older

+ You must submit your application for employment on the careers page at www.gecareers.com to be considered

Desired Characteristics:

+ Experience in applying machine learning and artificial intelligence to industrial problems

+ Programming skills/ experience in high level languages like Java, .NET, and Cloud computing

+ Knowledgeable with relational databases & SQL concepts

+ Strong working knowledge and experience working with big data technology e.g. Spark, Hadoop and MapReduce

+ Interest/Experience in large data sets, cloud based architectures and deployment frameworks for machine learning algorithms

+ Strong analytical skills, with demonstrated reputation including publications / development / deployment experience

+ Hands on experience with medium scale distributed compute infrastructure deployment is a plus

+ Excellent teamwork and customer focus

+ Excellent written and verbal communication skills

+ Ability to work under uncertainty

+ Ability to work independently with minimal direction

+ Flexibility of working across all functions/levels as part of a team
