Suplari– Providing AI-driven analytics for modern business procurement teams


Machine learning technology can reduce financial risks in several ways: Machine learning algorithms can continuously analyze huge amounts of data (for example, on loan repayments, car accidents, or company stocks) and predict trends that can impact lending and insurance. Machine learning is used in finance quite often for pattern recognition - in hedge funds trying to create quantitative strategies to trade in the capital markets. Machine learning is suitable to trawl through the huge amount of data and find those hard-to-spot-with-human-observation patterns there.
