Using AI to Assess Risk with Mike O’Malley of SenecaGlobal | Utilizing AI 3×02

Machine learning excels at finding needles in haystacks, even unexpected ones, and this helps organizations to assess risks. In this first official episode of season 3, Utilizing AI hosts Stephen Foskett and Chris Grundemann discuss risk analysis with Mike O’Malley of SenecaGlobal. ML is extremely good at detecting outliers and adapting to changing patterns, and this can yield excellent results in applications like financial pattern recognition. But AI lacks real understanding, and this can limit the use cases for ML.

Three Questions

What’s the strangest or most amusing application for ML that you have encountered?

Can you think of any fields that have not yet been touched by AI?
