Working with our R&D teams to help source, prepare and generate data to build AI solutions that provide insights that potentially help save lives could be your job. Our products leverage cutting edge voice technology, language models, natural language understanding, video analytics, and machine learning to enable our customers to focus on what matters while providing faster responses, safer outcomes and greater transparency.
The candidate will join a talented team of data scientists and engineers (located in Chicago, Boston, Vancouver and Krakow, Poland) in the Chief Technology Office at Motorola Solutions working on developing mission-critical AI solutions for our public safety and commercial customers. Our mission is to provide meaningful value to MSI’s customers by developing domain-specific applications and services in the areas of Speech & Audio, Machine Translation, Natural Language Understanding and Computer Vision.
Join our team to become a cornerstone part of Artificial Intelligence development and lead our efforts in creating one of the most critical pieces of data science and machine learning workflow — the datasets for training and testing!. This crucial role will help determine need, manage sourcing, measure impact and help build tools to improve efficiency of the entire data process for our R&D teams.
Understand the need/type of data required for an AI project with the goal of anticipating the requirements well in advance of starting development (including tracking current performance issues with QA, roadmap plans from PdMs, and the goals of team leads).
Be able to put together a plan to source the data (and annotations), including scoping effort and cost.
Work with our R&D teams to identify concrete requirements for tactical data needs and integrate data pipelines into our workflows for training and validation.
Direct a small engineering team to build tools to make the acquisition (or synthesis) and annotation of data easy and efficient.
Manage teams, budget, external service providers and legal/policy considerations in support of the above.
We’re excited about the work we are doing in AI. We often describe it as “Mission Critical AI” because our approach is founded on our many years of Public Safety experience and knowledge. We know the mission-critical needs of our customers are unique and different from the consumer technologies that leverage AI today.
