Accenture’s Artificial Intelligence team focuses on getting machines to do things that we would call intelligent behavior. Intelligence – whether artificial or otherwise – does not have a precise definition, but there are many activities and behaviors that are considered intelligent when exhibited by humans and animals. Examples include seeing, learning, using tools, understanding human speech, reasoning, making good guesses, playing games, and formulating plans and objectives. AI team in Accenture Operations focuses on how to get machines or computers to perform these same kinds of activities, though not necessarily in the same way that humans might do them.
We are looking for an exceptional hands-on research scientist with a proven track record of experience in applying machine learning methods towards solving real-world problems through Knowledge Representation & Reasoning (KRR), Speech Recognition, Unsupervised Learning, Reinforcement Learning to name a few. You will be joining a world-class, multidisciplinary team and will be participating in cutting-edge research in machine intelligence and artificial intelligence. You will be providing quality answers to large-scale problems with broad impact.
