Kitware, Inc. is actively seeking Computer Vision Research Interns to join our Computer Vision Team. Kitware’s Computer Vision
team is a leader in the creation of cutting-edge algorithms and software for automated image and video analysis. Our solutions embrace deep learning and add measurable value to government agencies, commercial organizations, and academic institutions worldwide. We understand the difficulties in extracting, interpreting, and utilizing information across images, video, metadata, and text, and we recognize the need for robust, affordable solutions. We seek to advance the fields of computer vision and deep learning through research and development and through collaborative projects that build on our open source software platforms, such as Kitware Image and Video Exploitation and Retrieval (KWIVER)
About the Projects:
Interns will be able to explore their own ideas to address challenging real-world computer vision problems, and will be encouraged to publish the results of their work in academic papers submitted to premier conferences. In addition, interns can also focus on contributing high-quality software to the KWIVER
platform, an exciting, open source, and versatile platform for computer vision research and development. We consider the work that we do on our government contracts one of the ways that we give back to the community. We relish the opportunity to work on hard problems that have a direct impact on the health, safety and security of our community; our team members choose Kitware instead of working in large internet companies to sell web advertisements.
