AI Group - NLP Research Engineer
New York, NY
Posted May 5, 2021 - Requisition No. 87013
Textual data is key to understanding how events in the world impact our clients. As the amount of unstructured data has increased, natural language processing has become a key tool for Bloomberg to deliver analytics faster, more accurately, and at a larger scale than ever before. Whether it's analyzing the social media sentiment of companies over thousands of tweets per second, automatically extracting key indicators from press releases and filings before the rest of the market, or helping our clients derive intelligence from their internal communications by identifying entities and intents, NLP has enabled Bloomberg to maintain its edge as the market leader in financial data and communications.
