At GLG, we aim to build a platform that matches companies around the world with the people who can help them make the right call on their most important decisions on demand.
We are looking for Research Talent, who will work alongside our Software Engineering teams, and focus on developing a deep learning / machine learning based framework to classify short to medium length research questions / project requests, and match available knowledge / expert to a business’ problem.
The research findings will extend the Chinese language NLP libraries and frameworks, and integrate NLP technology into platforms and products to empower intelligent solutions, which will eventually provide GLG's clients with significantly improved efficiency in information and knowledge acquisition.
The Problems You’ll Solve
How do you figure out what topic someone knows better than anyone else? How do you match that person to a business that has a problem they don’t fully understand?
These are some of the ways our Engineers are solving these enormous problems right now :
Search Working closely with our internal research team, we provide advanced search tools that let our client solutions professionals pinpoint the right people to introduce to our customers for each project.
By integrating more and more data, we are constantly striving to boost recall while maintaining high numbers for accuracy and keeping an interface that is simple and intuitive.
Artificial Intelligence We currently make 10% of our matches with AI and machine learning techniques and are looking to steadily increase that percentage.
This is a great start, but there is huge opportunity to improve our accuracy and scale.
