Job Description
SEED is a pioneering group within Electronic Arts that combines creativity with applied research. We explore, build, and help define the future of interactive entertainment.

We exist at EA to deliver and foster inspiring innovation for our games and our players. We do this through exploration, research, prototypes, and never-ending curiosity. We collaborate with game teams and industry partners and also publish our research within our industry and to the public. We pursue long-term applied research yet stay relevant to the present by delivering artifacts along the way to game teams and technology groups inside EA. Some of our research includes bringing digital characters to life, using machine learning for game AI and content creation, and developing novel real-time graphics & physics techniques.

We are now looking for students with a game development / design and a software background who want to work and learn about the future of designing innovative game worlds.

For Fall 2024 semester we are particularly interested in exploring these topics:
• ML-based asset generation for games
• 3D Editing with Textual and Visual Control
• Neural compression for textures
• Evolving adaptive agent behavior to a player
• ML Agents for Ice Hockey Gameplay
• Gaussian Splatting for Real-Time Rendering

You are interested in advancing games with new technology. You enjoy investigating, prototyping, and implementing novel solutions. You have a solid knowledge of computer science and interactive technologies. You also know about ML methods for games, such as GenAI (topics 1-3), Reinforcement learning (topics 4-5), and Computer graphics (topics 6).

Please indicate in your application what topic you are interested in and how your background matches this particular area.

At SEED you will be working with a talented, distributed, multi-disciplinary team of programmers, technical artists, and researchers - where you will participate in the development of graphics technology for future EA games. This is a diverse team with big ambitions, and we expect you to work with a wide range of tasks as well as taking initiative. Does this make you curious? If you want to take your education to the next step by working with some of the best talent there is in this field, then this is the team for you.

What skills does SEED look for?
• Masters Thesis Computer Science, with a specialization in machine learning or game development.
