Data & Cryptography

We are researching data itself. Our researchers, therefore, are exploring new ways to clean, integrate and auto-generate appropriate data to help train our machine learning algorithms, while committing to meet the highest security and privacy standards. We partner with our data management, technology architecture and cybersecurity experts to solve data and security issues that face our global bank.

Learning From Experience

We believe in symbiotic relationships between humans and AI. Through techniques such as deep learning and reinforcement learning, not only can machines learn, but also humans can learn what the machines are capable of in innovating the way we work in the finance industry.

Explainability & Interpretability

Our researchers believe that our clients, communities and regulators must be able to understand our algorithms. Our team collaborates closely with risk and technology to ensure interpretable techniques are integrated throughout our businesses.
