You will also perform practical work with the AIs themselves: teaching them, benchmarking, building tech-demos and high-profile client applications, as well as public outreach.

Description

  • Conduct cutting-edge research in AGI.
  • Contribute to the AGI code base.
  • Design and help implement environments, real or simulated, to raise AIs and demonstrate their skills.
  • Design and help implement tools for debugging, profiling and benchmarking AGI.
  • Occasionally, contribute to selected high-profile client projects.

Minimum Qualifications

  • 4+ years experience conducting cutting-edge research.
  • PhD in Computer Science, Physics, or Mathematics.
  • Strong publishing track record in top journals and conferences.
  • Demonstrated contribution to the field of AI, ideally in online continual learning, transfer learning and concept formation.
  • Solid system-building experience in C++11.
  • Fluent in written and spoken English.

Game Developer – AGI

Lugano, Switzerland  Full Time

Description

Standing at the intersection of research and development you will interface the AI’s operation with human understanding thereof, and conversely, cast human intents into AI. Leveraging a broad and inquisitive engineering mindset, you will be responsible for co-designing and implementing a next-generation integrated development environment (IDE) for AGI. You will own this project and report to researchers and other R&D engineers. Additionally, you will:
  • Implement 3D interactive worlds, non-playing characters (NPCs) and narratives.
  • Debug, profile and benchmark AGI behaviors.
  • Produce frequent proofs of concepts.
  • Support public demo releases and client projects.
  • Provide constructive design feedback to the research team.

Minimum Qualifications

We look for a candidate with hands-on experience, capable of producing high-quality code from requirements within the first month. To that extent we require:
