The open source model is quite hard to be reconciled with the traditional SaaS model, especially in the financial sector. However, we are observing many firms providing cutting-edge technologies and algorithms for free. In this article, we try to explore why that's the case.
This paper discusses the role of the data scientist, what a data scientist is, and the set of skills needed to become one.
Conversational User Interfaces (CUI) are at the heart of the current wave of AI development. Although many applications and products out there are simply “Mechanical Turks” — which means machines that pretend to be automatized while a hidden person is actually doing all the work — there have been many interesting advancements in speech recognition from the symbolic or statistical learning approaches.
In particular, deep learning is drastically augmenting the abilities of the bots with respect to traditional NLP (i.e., bag-of-words clustering, TF-IDF, etc.) and is creating the concept of “conversation-as-a-platform”, which is disrupting the apps market.
This paper focuses on how AI is disrupting the insurance sector. Starting from the conventional insurance process, we will move through the specific novelties AI is introducing in the field in order to understand how AI is completely changing the way people buy and think of insurance products. Finally, an eight-group classification is proposed for the insurtech ecosystem.
