Oil and gas companies face many of the same challenges as large banks and established insurance firms when it comes to searching through their backlogs of documents. They want to use the data stored within these documents to make decisions on where to drill and determine whether or not they’re in compliance with laws and regulations.
AI and machine learning have had successful applications in the financial sector even before the entry of the mobile banking ecosystem. AI is being used to leverage insights from data for financial investing and trading, wealth management, asset management, and risk management.
AI hardware is a fast-growing interest among tech media, and there is a lot of opportunity for computer hardware developers when it comes to building chipsets for AI. That said, margins for AI chipsets can differ wildly depending on the use-case for which they’re being built.
Customer data is essential for insurance firms to stay competitive in the coming decade. Insurance companies at present have backlogs of data on past and existing customers in the form of policy agreements, applications, and claims forms. They’ve also collected millions of images showing car damage, property damage, and personal injuries.
There's an entire artificial intelligence ecosystem for enterprise search. Most of this is in a purely digital world.

Although one might assume that these documents are digital, in many cases, even the largest banks store old physical documents in file cabinets and boxes off the bank’s premises, and even those that are kept on-site might be relegated to storage units amongst hundreds of thousands of other documents.
The financial sector has been an early adopter of AI. It is likely that the use of algorithms in trading and the fact that most large financial firms already have teams of software developers aided the transition into data science and AI applications in the industry.
In this episode of the AI in Industry podcast, we speak with Marshall Choy, VP of Product at SambaNova, an AI hardware firm based in the Bay Area. SambaNova was founded by a number of Oracle and Sun Micro Systems alumni. We speak with Choy on two fundamental questions:
