Job Description:

The Leidos Innovation Center (LiNC) at Leidos currently has an opening for an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Researcher to work at our Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) customer site on Wright-Patterson AFB, OH. We are seeking a dedicated and talented AI Researcher to work as part of a leading-edge research and engineering, design and development team. Leidos seeks mission and team-oriented individuals who enjoy working as an individual contributor in highly collaborative teams.

The AI Researcher will contribute to Robust and Secure Machine Learning (RSML) project, which is a collaborative research project between several geographically distributed branches of the Air Force Research Laboratory.

The Air Force is increasingly utilizing machine learning (ML) systems and seeks to advance our understanding and capabilities to assess the performance of ML systems under a variety of conditions, including adversarial ML. We also seek to develop novel metrics for measuring robustness of ML systems when humans are integrated into the learning process or when ML is integrated into human decision making.

This effort involves researching state of the art ML models and training methods together with assessments of model robustness. At the conclusion of the project we aim to have a better understanding of the mechanisms for and measurement of robustness in the context of machine learning.

Primary Responsibilities

You will work as an AI Researcher in a high performing research and development team to develop creative and innovative interfaces for complex analytical data produced by machine learning and artificial intelligence systems. You will direct, collect, understand, and process various types of data for developing analytics visualizations for research and analysis. You will also build creative visualizations and user interfaces that show off the models being tested and allow for human feedback or enable active and interactive learning paradigms. Help our team to bridge the gap between computers and humans!

The successful candidate will work with government customers, software engineers, subject matter experts, and military personnel.
