    Job Description

    Arm’s Machine Learning Research Lab delivers underlying ML technology that enables current and emerging applications across the full ML landscape, from data centres to client devices to IoT. Our research feeds into product roadmaps to deliver industry-leading hardware and software solutions to Arm’s partners.

    The Lab focusses on providing top model accuracy while optimizing for energy consumption. This includes defining the architecture and training our own custom machine learning models, incorporating Bayesian/probabilistic methods for uncertainty estimates, optimizing and creating tools to optimize existing state-of-the-art models, exploring techniques for compressing models, transforming data for efficient computation, enabling inference at the edge, and developing techniques for distributed training and inference. We deliver models, algorithms for compression, library optimization based on computational analysis, network architecture search (NAS) tools, ideas for instruction set architecture (ISA) and accelerator architecture.

    The research also investigates use cases, such as natural language processing (NLP), computer vision (CV), and simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), as a way to determine which aspects of fundamental ML technology are or will be important to next generation applications.

    Our worldwide team of researchers possess a broad range of ML skills but also a particular interest in researching and developing ML techniques that can roll out into real products and applications.

    The role encompasses -

    •Identifying and investigating key ML technologies and algorithms, and assessing how they’ll impact our products and partners

    •Collaborating with our product teams to develop new IP – architecture, hardware, and software

    •Reporting results to key partners and publishing research within the overall ML ecosystem

    •Developing and optimizing ML algorithms for energy-constrained devices

    •Prototyping hardware and software solutions

    •Collaborating with university and industry research partners

    If you have an established track record in these areas and have exceptional skills to develop creative research agendas and execute projects successfully, you could be an extraordinary fit to join our team.


    Job Requirements

    What skills, experience, and qualifications do I need?

    MS or PhD or post-doc in machine learning, or, computer science, mathematics, physics, or engineering combined with a background in machine learning
    Hands-on experience developing foundational machine learning technology, including algorithms, models, training, optimization tools
    Good experience with common ML frameworks (TensorFlow, PyTorch, PyMC, GPflow, Pyro etc.)
    Published at premier ML\hardware conferences, such as, NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR, CVPR, SysML, ISCA, HPCA, IEEE, Hot Chips
    Solid understanding of deep learning (CNN, RNN, LSTM) concepts
    Deep understanding of probabilistic machine learning concepts (Bayesian inference, Ensemble Learning, Gaussian Processes, Variational inference, MC Sampling etc.)
    Understanding of CPU, GPU, and NN accelerator micro-architecture
    Strong programming skills (Python, C++)
    Scientific, data-driven, objective mindset
    Desired behaviours for this role:

    Arm is proud to have a set of behaviors that reflect our visionary culture and guide our decisions, defining how we work together to defy ordinary and craft extraordinarily. These behaviors are assessed during the recruitment process:
