Hiring Several PostDocs and PhD Students in Computer Vision,
Image Processing and
Machine Learning

Humans, a deep tech start-up creating a platform integrating data and technology to generate unique AI models and use them as an API (application programming interface) by the business community, is looking for outstanding candidates to fill several computer vision and machine learning engineer positions.

Humans is creating an open platform that uses AI to generate and manipulate Digital DNAs. These virtual identities, based on people’s voices, images, and gestures, can be used to create synthetic media, whose applications are unlimited. Humans is backed up by a hyper-specialized team, consisting of software experts, computer vision PhD students, and international Olympic students.

Recently, Humans launched a biometrics solution for its blockchain-built platform that uses AI to create digital DNAs.

The Proof-of-Human tech innovation was announced at the Dubai AIBC Summit, a global event on emerging technologies. Last year, Humans raised EUR 330K to develop synthetic media, with Early Game Ventures and Razvan Munteanu as the main investors, while in September 2021, Humans attracted USD 9M financing through the private sale of cryptocurrency. Among the main investors for this new round are the entrepreneur Răzvan Munteanu, one of the most active investors in the blockchain area and Elrond Research, the investment arm of one of the most respected blockchain companies in the world.
