Hedge fund investments use several different strategies to achieve returns in both domestic and international markets. They are often aggressively managed and trade in land, real estate, stocks, derivatives, currencies, etc. markets.
The most lucrative hedge funds also have a diverse portfolio—which means investors need to analyze large amounts of data to make investment decisions.
Historically, insurers have relied on linear regression of a small number of risk factors, largely reported by the policy-holder on a trust basis, to determine an insurance premium. However, a good prediction model of individual future insurance costs is becoming a business essential as competition in the insurance industry and low customer switching costs have become key drivers for insurers to build a pricing structure which covers their incurred costs.
Organizations must satisfy the unique demands of their customers. The good old days of mass marketing and predictions on limited mixture of products in one location are gone. Conversely, the use of artificial intelligence in inventory generates huge dividends to companies willing to reshape their supply chain orders.
This technological development results from the availability of massive amounts of real-time data now routinely generated by enterprise software systems and smart products. By collecting this data, organizing it, and interpreting it, artificial intelligence and machine learning have introduced an entirely new level of data processing leading to deeper business insights.
