Bloomberg offers unparalleled coverage across News and Social Media, Alternative Data, Research, and Live Markets to our clients. In addition, we provide advanced tools to retrieve information, run analyses and execute trades. To facilitate delivering this information and analytics to our clients, the AI Engineering group builds data-driven, distributed, high-throughput solutions which are collectively used billions of times a day. Our team of 200+ research engineers – organized into 6 divisions and more than 25 teams – work together to architect and implement these data-driven customer-facing products end to end, as well as to develop AI infrastructure and algorithms used by engineers and data scientists across the company. When designing and building AI-driven products we often need to develop solutions that go beyond textbook approaches or even state-of-the-art, and we actively share our findings externally through, for instance, scientific publications or by contributing to open source software.
