We are in process of launching Merlin A.I. Studio™.
The artificial intelligence (AI)-based platform will allow procurement teams to to build and deploy bots across the source-to-pay process.
The bots will be used by firms leveraging more than 1,100 APIs from Zycus’ solution suite.
“By deploying the intelligent bots from Merlin A.I. Studio™, procurement can put themselves in cruise control mode as the bots work towards accomplishing tasks with zero human intervention,” The Fortune 500-serving firm explained in its press release
“Be it running an RFI event, discovering contract risks, negotiating with suppliers or transnational procurement; all one needs to do is launch the bot and see the magic unfold.”
“It will empower procurement to transform their routine, repetitive & mundane procurement tasks, so that time, effort & resources can be optimized towards more strategic initiatives.”
So what competency are we looking out from Market??
We are looking for the one who is creating, implementing AI solution by himself/herself and not just executed based on existing solutions – for example we need those high quality professionals who create IBM WATSON kind of analytical AI product not those who has developed and implement some bots/AI application using IBM WATSON.
We are especially looking for applicants with a strong background in Analytics and Data mining (Web, Social and Big data), Machine Learning and Pattern Recognition, Natural Language Processing and Computational Linguistics, Statistical Modelling and Inferencing, Information Retrieval, Large Scale Distributed Systems and Cloud Computing, Econometrics and Quantitative Marketing, Applied Game Theory and Mechanism Design, Operations Research and Optimization, Human Computer Interaction and Information Visualization. Applicants with a background in other quantitative areas are also encouraged to apply. If you are passionate about research and developing innovative technologies of interest to Zycus and the research community at large, the BigData Experience Lab may be the right place for you.
All successful candidates are expected to dive deep into problem areas of Zycus’s interest and invent technology solutions to not only advance the current products, but also to generate new product options that can strategically advantage Zycus
