Thomson Reuters Labs

Thomson Reuters Labs™ is the global reaching innovation arm of Thomson Reuters. Through the rapid prototyping of solutions and knowledge sharing, we support the organization and our customers with the understanding and application of new technologies to their businesses. We work collaboratively across our core segments to identify, de-risk and activate future-ready opportunities in AI, data sciences and emerging technologies.

Areas of Practice

With over 50 people in five locations, we carefully compose each team to support our main areas of practice:


Our process often begins with user research and design thinking workshops to understand the human side of systems and to inform our thinking about what problems should be solved. Rapidly creating prototypes allows us to explore solutions, validate them through customer testing, and de-risk their further development. Through this process we build functional front-end interfaces and visualizations to support the understanding of our customers’ needs.

Data Science

Our data scientists work closely and in a rigorous, systematic way with subject matter experts to determine how well our machine learning (ML) models are working and what level of performance is appropriate to the task being automated. They apply the latest developments in machine learning, including applications of deep learning, natural language processing (NLP), predictive modeling, classification, text generation, text summarization tasks, and more.


We enable the transition of design and research work into the hands of our segment partners, accelerating adoption of innovative solutions for our customers. Our engineering team works alongside our design and data science teams to execute the latest developments in software design. In addition to helping the company deploy machine learning solutions, our engineers prototype solutions utilizing decentralized ledger technologies, identity services, public cloud, and other emerging and fast evolving fields.
