Digital responsibility in practice

Data is transforming our personal and professional lives. But how can companies be trusted to walk the right #ethical line on topics such as data protection, privacy, and IP? We are proud to be leading the way. We launched our Code of Digital Ethics (CoDE). Five core principles are at its heart. Justice, the Autonomy of every single human, Beneficence to promote the needs and well-being of humanity, Non-maleficence to avoid doing harm, and Transparency.

Our Projects

Our projects have changed the way we operate at our company. We call these use cases, which is when our data has been used for the benefit of our business. Use cases demonstrate our ability to apply data in a way that inspires better thinking and backs up key innovations. Here are some exemplary use cases that give you a flavor of what you could be working on.



Flight Risk Estimation, Group Functions
Are our talents in danger of leaving? Our People Data & Technology team uses flight risk estimations and its strong predictive power to let us understand potential structural reasons why an employee would leave the company. Machine Learning models predict which factors are relevant, letting HR professionals take preventive actions.

Decision making is now based on curated, cleansed and globally harmonized information. A cutting edge, in-memory-technology forms the backbone of the technical platform, enabling the fast processing and querying of vast data sets.

FLUX: The Digital Opportunity Locator, ACE
Our FLUX use case was developed by the Analytics Centre of Excellence (ACE) in Life Science. Launched in 2019, FLUX gives more than 450 global marketing colleagues the ability to:

- define complex conditions for expected buying patterns;

- capture insights of the primary characteristics driving workflow sales; and

- use a suite of analytical tools and workflow definitions to target business drivers and identify cross-selling opportunities.

To date, our domain experts have translated their intimate knowledge and experience of the market into over 145 workflows that power the solution. A one-stop shop, FLUX provides a central location to record, maintain, and view workflows, applications, bundles and kits. Key analysis features allow proactive discovery of new business and lead to more successful data-driven marketing campaigns. Today, FLUX is used by all Life Science divisions and businesses.

COMPASS: Finding the Right Customer at the Right Time, The Life Science Analytics Center of Excellence (ACE)
Our ACE Data Science Team continues to give our salesforce a competitive advantage by identifying opportunities before the competition. How? Based on the analysis of large, complex internal and external data, the team built COMPASS. Launched in 2018, COMPASS enables sales representatives to access prioritized information about the most attractive potential customer. Based on learnings from previous customer encounters, the tool uses an adaptive Machine Learning Model to predict which biotech companies are looking for a partner to outsource process development and manufacturing for their drug candidate.

COMPASS became one of the major sources for generating sales opportunities. This led to above average growth of the business and higher profitability due to more efficient use of resources. The tool‘s success has led to an impressive expansion and various adaptations for an increasing number of Life Science businesses.

Boost, Electronics
In our semiconductor business (within Electronics), we have seen a change in the demand from our customers when it comes to quality. In order to support this shift, we need to be more data-driven, we need to understand our materials even better and integrate our data with our customers. As the industry advances to new technology nodes and introduces new materials, we have hundreds of very precise production steps that we take to support them. Our project Boost works on a new approach to material quality by implementing a future-oriented and scalable, real-time system for data sharing. Boost leverages our Industry 4.0 capabilities such as automation and data analysis across business units to provide customers with better materials and services.

Using artificial intelligence to study cancer, Biopharma, Healthcare
The Development of new cancer drugs is supported by Artificial Intelligence (AI). Our computer and data scientists are cooperating with pathologists and biologists in a new area being referred to as digital pathology. Their goal? To enable computers to precisely identify which of our therapies could be effective for cancer patients. The team is training the system with tissue sample images from hundreds of patients. Data scientist then are developing the AI analyses for this. Each high-resolution image is about one gigabyte in size and requires the computing power of the high-performance cluster, a cabinet-sized computer at the Darmstadt site. With that, we can now train AI so that it can distinguish the tumor types better than some physicians.

Our ways of working

We work in a collaborative and agile way. That means from the idea to the final product, you’ll work alongside business, data, and technology experts on projects relevant to business needs. A high visibility combined with strong exposure to the business is part of your work routine.

Be surprised by the amount of existing data that make a great playground for you. Especially as a Software Engineer or Data Scientists you can start right away coding and analyzing.

Leave your comfort zone and scale up your data-driven skill set

We use a wide variety of coding languages, tools and platforms. Even if you don’t use these languages and platforms, we’ll help you to learn them. We’ll support you in becoming more skillful in everything you do.

You will enter an environment with a high level of autonomy and global recognition. We laugh together, support each other and build strong and trusted relationships.

You will be part of a highly motivated team where everyone brings their unique perspective.

AI Research - Machine Learning inspired by the human brain

The field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has made impressive progress over the last couple of years: voice-controlled digital assistants, automated translation services, self-driving cars, world-class Go playing algorithms and other novelties have made it into homes and headlines.


When artificial intelligence goes deep

Today, artificial intelligence (AI) and the deep learning method enable surprising and spectacular applications, such as image and voice recognition.

AI in drug discovery

Back in 2011, IBM’s Watson supercomputer won the US TV game show Jeopardy and captured the public’s imagination. At that time, smartphones had no built-in Siri or Google Assistant and few people would have believed how commonplace devices such as Google Home and Amazon Alexa would become.


Quantum computing. The next frontier or the next hype? 

For a science and technology company like Merck Group the powerful modeling and simulation at molecular level is a gamechanger. Therefore it is imperative to invest early on in these future technologies. Glad to have so much forward looking, thinking and acting colleagues in my corner, especially the In Silico Research team.

Vast amount of data mean a vast amount of responsibility

With the advance of social networks, artificial intelligence and robots, many new ethical questions arise. Companies in particular are faced with increasing demands with regard to the responsible use of digital technologies and data. 


AI in Supply chain

The healthcare supply chain ensures that patients get the medicines they need when they need them. Is artificial intelligence set to revolutionize this increasingly complex process? 

“We want every patient to be able to get the medicines they need when they need them,” says Teresa Rodó, our Head of Global Healthcare Operations.
