Driving Drug Discovery Efficiencies in Life Sciences with AI – with Anne Phelan of BenevolentAI

According to research from the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, nine out of 10 drugs fail to make it to market in the clinical trials process. Researchers in the cited studies found that 40-50% of these failures are due to a lack of clinical efficacy, meaning that the drug is not able to produce its intended effect in people, and 30% were due to unmanageable toxicity or side effects.

Cultivating ‘Value Driven Data’ in Insurance – with Edosa Odaro of Tawuniya

Business processes are defined in large part by the data within an organization. Value-driven data, by definition, represents higher-quality data.

Driving AI Adoption in Insurance – with Ryann Foelker of American Family Insurance Group

As a rule, AI adoption tends to take more time for legacy industries compared to digitally-native sectors. As a profile from June 2021 in Harvard Business Review explains, insurance companies are data-rich but have long relied on actuarial approaches to data and analytics.  The insurance industry has several concerns regarding the integration of AI. Insurance companies obviously have regulatory compliance as a top priority, so any AI solution implemented needs to comply with existing regulations regarding consumer protection and data security, among others.

Financial Services Challenges and Solutions in the Age of Generative AI – with Fabrizio Burlando of Mastercard

Over the last decade, public introductions of advanced technologies from big tech firms, such as Google Glasses and Meta's (then-Facebook) Metaverse platform, were met with infamous disappointment. In stark contrast, initial iterations of generative AI (GenAI) in large language models and other tools deployed across the global economy by smaller players like OpenAI in the last few years are having a far more lasting impact. A recent report from McKinsey noted that the staying power of GenAI could add $2.6 trillion to 4.4 trillion USD annually to the global economy.
