  • Understanding the latest academic and commercial developments in NLP, machine learning and further AI-based technologies, you will develop models to foster enterprise-search and text-analysis capabilities, leading to more relevant, meaningful results, providing knowledge in a more condensed, smart and personalized form
  • You will design, develop and utilize intelligent systems for modelling and migrating the output into visualized knowledge to also discover new insights
  • You will work with cross-discipline teams to ensure connectivity between various data sources and business problems, identify meaningful insights and interpret and communicate findings and recommendations.
  • You will present your findings in an easy-to-understand way to various audiences to inspire co-workers about disruptive AI-based approaches and concepts
