Senior Scientist — Natural Language Dialog Systems
SRI International has been at the forefront of speech and natural language research for decades, and has recently been very active in commercialization of aspects of that research (through spinoffs including Siri, Trapit, Desti, and Kuato, in addition to licenses with major companies). Our current technology platform offers an end-to-end spoken natural language dialog solution for many applications. We see this as just the beginning of the capabilities that will be needed in this rapidly growing area.
We are seeking an entrepreneurial-minded Senior Scientist to develop and lead an R&D program in natural-language dialog systems, with emphasis on dialog management. Responsibilities include planning and promoting government — and especially commercially-funded research projects in the area, leading and participating in those projects, and contributing to creation of commercial ventures and licenses.
- PhD in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Linguistics or related discipline. Established record in research as evidenced by publications, reputation, and general quality of contribution
- Five to eight years of experience in any of the following areas are preferred:
- Artificial intelligence;
- Intelligent agents: agent communication languages, agent architectures;
- Spoken language systems: speech recognition, natural language understanding, dialogue, conversational agents;
- User-centered design

Cyc (www.cyc.com) is an immense knowledge based system, with millions of rules written in full first order logic and beyond (meta- and meta-meta- reasoning, reflection, modals, contexts, etc.), so its inference engine programmers continually experiment with novel, clever ways to chip away at the exponents plaguing conventional theorem proving algorithms. Cycorp needs Junior and Senior Inference Programmers and Architects. Required skills include:
- Java or Lisp programming
- Fluency with first-order logic
- Talent for and enjoyment of clever algorithm design
- AI background and interest
- Working well as a "lieutenant"
- Not afraid to dig into and operate on a complex software system
- Either software productization experience or a sense of humor
Additional pluses would be familiarity with other inference engines, higher order logic, databases, machine learning, natural language processing, probability and probabilistic reasoning.
Salary and Terms: commensurate with experience
