About the Role
Our problems do not have easy solutions. We need the best and brightest to help us with specialized forms of object detection, OCR, and semi-supervised learning in order to automate more and more of what our customers need. In service of this goal, hospitals entrust us with extremely sensitive patient data coming directly from their EHR systems, meaning we have world-class datasets that cannot be found anywhere else.
