CIB Machine Learning Center of Excellence - Applied AI/ML Lead
The Machine Learning Center of Excellence combines cutting edge machine learning techniques with the company's unique data assets to optimize all the business decisions we make. In this role, you will be part of our world-class machine learning team, and advance the state-of-the-art in financial applications ranging from pricing and credit models to natural language processing. Our work spans the company's lines of business, with exceptional opportunities in each.
The successful candidate will develop new machine learning methods tailored to banking applications such as risk assessment, trading models, customer relationship management, and pricing models. Machine learning techniques will include feed-forward, recurrent, recursive and convolutional neural networks, maximum entropy models, and other algorithms related to time series analysis and supervised learning. In addition to using and adapting existing models, you will be expected to develop new techniques especially suited to banking applications. The candidate will help in the identification and solution of new problem areas. Responsibilities
