As an AI engineer, you will facilitate the transfer of advanced AI technologies from the research labs to the domain testbeds and thus the real world. You will participate in the full research to deployment pipeline. You will help conceptualize and develop research experiments, and then implement the systems to execution these experiments. You will lead or work with a team and interact closely with deep experience machine learning engineering and research and the industry partners. You will attend reading groups and seminars, master research techniques and engineering practices, and design research tools and experimental testbeds. You will apply state-of-the-art AI algorithms, explore new solutions, and build working prototypes. You will also learn to deploy the systems and solutions at scale.


  • Use Deep Learning and Machine Learning to create scalable solutions for business problems.
  • Deliver Deep Learning/Machine Learning projects from beginning to end, including business understanding, data aggregation, data exploration, model building, validation and deployment.
  • Define Architecture Reference Assets - Apply Accenture methodology, Accenture reusable assets, and previous work experience to delivery consistently high quality work. Deliver written or oral status reports regularly. Stay educated on new and emerging market offerings that may be of interest to our clients.
