Job Description

Dailymotion is seeking a Research Machine Learning Scientist Engineer to join our Machine Learning team, and especially, the team responsible of our content categorization. Your work will have an impact throughout Dailymotion’s business and help make data-driven decisions on products and strategy. You will be part of a team made up of several Machine Learning Scientists/Engineers, Data Engineers, and Data Analysts that closely work together on several machine learning projects including recommender systems, semantic annotations, fraud detection, etc.

In order to better understand, organize and expose our video catalog to our millions of active users, Dailymotion's Machine Learning team developed several models to categorize our content. Well-categorized content helps to design a better user experience through better recommendations, contextual ads, etc. In order to keep up to the market, we have some tracks to add new/improved features. One of which is multi-modal learning, combining textual, audio, and visual information to improve our catalog categorization. It is key for many transverse businesses of Dailymotion and has a positive impact on buyers (placing commercials on the appropriate video), but also for publishers and active users of the platform. Thus, the benefits of this internship could be huge, with the industrialization of the solution when the performances are interesting.

As an Intern Research Machine Learning Engineer, you will

  • Try, evaluate and benchmark state-of-the-art multi-modal representation/classification methods.
  • Implement a scalable prototype in Python of a state-of-the-art algorithm to build a fully automated classification of the videos based on textual, audio, and/or visual signals.
  • Validate the algorithm performance according to our internal business KPIs on an evaluation dataset of videos from our catalog.
  • Finally, participate in the industrialization of the solution in the Dailymotion framework.

  • MS in Data Science / good knowledge of standard machine learning algorithms with a focus on: classification problems, computer vision, NLP, audio classification, Neural Networks (auto-encoders, LSTM, CNN, …).
  • Strong coding skills in Python (Scikit-learn, Numpy, Pandas, Tensorflow, Keras) and SQL.
  • Some knowledge of agile development methodologies (Git/Github, Docker, Jupyter notebook).
  • Intermediate level in English (spoken, written).
  • Experience with Google Cloud Platform is a plus (BigQuery, Cloud Storage, Compute Engine)
