    Overview of the Department

    The firm has recently set up an inter-disciplinary team to investigate the potential of machine learning and related areas to drive innovation in long-term investing.

    • Translating these problems into machine learning projects. We are very flexible here, and will use whatever machine learning approach is most appropriate to solve the problem.

    • Understanding how best to quantify the success of these projects and how the outcome can be used to help Baillie Gifford develop its investment processes.
