Navigating and processing a healthcare claim is impossible without a payer identified. Finding the best vet for a pet is difficult without knowing the species.Machine learning is about intelligence, but that intelligence requires data. Drug design, ad placement and web searches all can dramatically improve with machine learning agents or intelligent agents that have the ability to adapt and make decisions based on changing environments.
