Senior Data Scientist



Data Science
Boston, MA, USA
Posted on Friday, May 26, 2023
Pison is creating the next generation of neural interfaces that focus on gesture recognition and neurophysiological insights. Pison leverages our patented electroneurography (ENG) platform to translate data generated from our body’s natural physiological electricity stemming at the brain into machine interpretable events in software. This allows for never before seen intuitive control of any experience in the IoT universe and discovery of neurological correlations drawn from our proprietary AI and data sets. Pison’s government, Department of Defense and Fortune 100 customers have a deep pipeline of pending projects fueling our growth. Pison’s long term vision is to own the platform which translates human intention to machine-readable code.
Job Summary:
As a member of the Algorithms and Machine Learning team at Pison Technology, the Data Scientist will support machine learning research and development through data collection, signal processing, data mining/analysis, and model research. Additionally, the Data Scientist will work with machine learning engineers in Pison’s production inference pipeline development, deployment, and optimization. The Data Scientist will not only use data used to train/tune models and and perform benchmarking tests on these models to predict real-time performance, but will also have the opportunities to participate in data collection experiments.
This position is located in our Boston, MA office. This position would be expected to be onsite at least 3 times per week.
Research for state-of-the-art neurological insights prediction and gesture classification algorithms using IMU and biopotential sensor data with conventional ML and deep learning AI techniques
Develop code and tools in Python to test and characterize performance and limitations of different neurological insights prediction and gesture classification models
Perform data mining and data characterization to generate metrics and methods for evaluating performance of the real-time neurological insights prediction and gesture inference pipeline of the Pison gesture platform.
Collaborate with research, cloud, firmware, and software teams to progress research and aid model deployment
Help processing and cleanup of collected sensor data taken with Pison gesture platforms
Contribute to code reviews and mentoring of junior level team members
BS in CS or a related quantitative field. A master or Ph.D. is highly preferred
