I can imagine the phone screen:

"Is it a large Ph. d?"

How many machine learning/data specialists with PhDs don't have experience with algorithms?

She'll never find one of those in San Francisco.

Must have a PhD?

In what, exactly?

Can I count the HR interview as our first date?

Bet it pays something like $10 / hour to start.

Yes but imagine the benefits.

At facebook they start at something like $123,000 per year, and I don't think that requires anything higher than a bachelor's degree.

Which would be $61.50 per hour.

Do you know how many dicks you have to suck to get in to Facebook?

Seriously, do you know? Because my jaw is tired

I think it implies experience with MACHINE LEARNING algorithms. But why complain? I'm sure her HR staff shreds any resumes that don't include every word in the entire job description, so by keeping it simple she's sure to get at least a few candidates through the first filter.

$123,000 isn't as large a salary as you would think in the Bay Area.

That being said, the more esoteric specializations in computer science are in very high demand, and pay quite well.

Wow - that was amazing!

Did you use some kind of mathematical method for manipulating numbers to come up with that result?

I live in the Bay Area. 123K is still a pretty good salary, and better than a good chunk of my peers are making. The only way that 123K wouldn't be enough is if you're trying to live in Atherton or some of the snobbier parts of SF, or the upper crust districts of places like Palo Alto or Los Altos. otherwise, that's a pretty damned good salary, especially if you and your partner are both working.

The Bay Area is expensive, but let's not exaggerate how much is really costs to live here... unless the goal is to keep other people from moving out here in which case, my bad.

Sorry girl, but in reality those "scientists" on the field are self-entitled opportunistic assholes. They are stuck in the Middle Ages with their poorly written Matlab and OpenCV codes that will work only in lab conditions. They do not know how things really work. You should be looking for a real hardcore guy who has been on the field for at least 10 years, writing algorithms that are solving real problems real time with real datasets for a living.


/I have done more research with ANN's than all the "scientists" altogether in the last 10 years. Yes it's a fact. I didn't publish them because they are industrial secrets of my company.
/I don't have a PhD.

rosonowski: NoboruWatanabe: ?

Cognitive Model Of Psychology, perhaps?


Possibly, but while these models and theories may be perfectly suitable to human cognition, they rarely translate in a pure form to computational simulation. A pretty common hurdle to comprehension of things like neural networks and genetic algorithms is having too great of a conceptual reliance on the biological namesakes. While the analogies are apt, they really are just that. An evolutionary biologist wouldn't necessarily understand the finer points of GA's, and a neuroscientist might not understand the algorithms involved in neural networks.

The point is, sentient cognition and constructed digital analogues are different enough that knowledge of one does not translate to knowledge of the other.

Algorithms or GTFO.

Do you have an algorithm to write in 26 minutes?
