Internship (or Master Thesis) in Machine Learning/AI

Capskin AG is a start-up company based in Zurich, Switzerland, founded as a spin-off from ETH Zurich in 2020. Capskin sensor and AI technology enable ergonomically better fitting products and improve human performance and well-being substantially.

The solution is based on novel thin, wearable sensors, that can measure pressure and strain signals. The sensor data is interpreted through machine learning to reconstruct the human body shape and movement.

The first product is the Capskin Sensor Sock which enables the footwear industry to develop better-fitting shoes and end customers to find comfortable shoes.

We are looking for you, an open-minded ML/AI intern to join our development team and further develop the AI technology for our sensor sock. Your role will be to use your skills in machine learning to improve our AI models for foot shape and motion estimation.
