Just a quick note because this is a bit off-topic for this blog, but I wanted to let you all know that this year, we're trying to hire a machine learning/robotics person. If you do machine learning that in any way is robotics related, I'd encourage you to apply. (I suppose same holds the other way around, but I probably wouldn't be quite as excited.) The "deadline for full consideration" is listed as Jan 15, which has passed, but if you apply by the end of the month, things would be fine. In the interest of full disclosure, we're also hiring in graphics, systems and sensor networks.
