Research manager – cloud robotics

This is an opportunity to join our team (either at our premises in Coventry or remotely from anywhere in Europe), and work on our revolutionary cloud robotics service (Noos), which provides an array of AI modules to support Robot autonomy, as well as Human-Robot interaction.

We are already applying Noos in the creation and delivery of service robotics applications for the elderly (offering cognitive assistance, geriatric assessment, and companionship). However, Noos can be used in various other domains and fields, such as medical and clinical, children education, civil, agriculture, manufacturing and shop-floor operations, intelligent transport systems, unmanned vehicles, monitoring and security, etc.

We are looking for a Research manager to not only push forward our current work in cloud robotics by building applications that use Noos in specific contexts, but also to help us achieve our dream of building an AI infrastructure that will offer centralised intelligence to robots.
