Company Description:This Company is on a mission to computationally understand and teach the world s academic knowledge within 10 years. Currently they're building a personal learning assistant in your pocket that layers proprietary ML and NLP over existing content to extract important concepts, infer relationships between them, and map them to targeted resources from across the web.
Job Description:
Educational content is unique in that it is richly structured; calibrated to real-world curricular standards; and latently embeds topic and segmentation data from centuries of instruction and writing.

You will collaborate with an elite group of ML specialists, ontology engineers, and designers to discover meaning in the vast amounts of language in textbooks, open educational resources (OERs), and elsewhere, impacting millions of learners around the world.
The ideal candidate for this role has industry experience solving linguistic and knowledge representation problems with advanced statistical techniques for vast quantities of data, including emphases spanning language and topic modeling, information retrieval and extraction, cloze profiling, rule induction, text mining, auto-summarization, lemmatization, and semantic networks.
Qualifications:

- Provide technical vision and leadership in creating efficient, highly accurate NLP/NLU and KR algorithms and models
- Analyze and optimize the performance of your solutions
- Collaborate with other members of the engineering team, including ontology and full-stack engineers, on the Concept Graph and search initiatives
