Pankaj Risbood: We have a 20-people data science team right now, which is growing and expanding all the time. We look for people with core statistics and machine learning background, people who have done either a Master's or PhD in Deep Learning, statistics, artificial intelligence, and similar domains. We certainly look for people with strong coding abilities because ultimately it's a product, it's not research. So, being able to deliver the product is important going through the rigours of production deployment. And above everything, we look for people who are curious.


Octo Telematics: Melding analytics, machine learning and IoT to make roads safer

#artificialintelligence

Calculating insurance premiums is a challenging task for insurers, as they often have limited information upon which to base risk assessments. The period a driver has held a license and their type of car have never been reliable indicators of safety; and reports insurers receive about accidents are subjective and may be written sometime after the event. With telematics, insurers can understand in real-time where the driver is, and help the driver improve his or her behaviour, says Fabio Sbianchi, CEO and founder at Octo Telematics. Octo is a major provider of telematics and data analytics solutions for the auto insurance industry, and a pioneer of the insurance telematics industry. "We help insurance companies move from static data to dynamic data," says Sbianchi, who spoke at the the Analytics Experience conference in Milan, a business technology conference organised by SAS.


Driverless cars can make roads safer, says expert

#artificialintelligence

Fully autonomous cars will make Britain's roads safer, according to a pioneer of driverless vehicles. Professor Paul Newman, who was behind the UK's first and only self-driving car on public roads, said that the ability to share data between robots was a powerful tool that should be embraced. Over the last five years autonomous technology has developed rapidly, with the likes of Google and traditional motor manufacturers designing driverless cars. Last year Ocado trialled in London the delivery of food to customers with a self-driving truck, which was developed by Oxford-based Oxbotica, a company co-founded by Prof Newman. Other semi-autonomous technology is being pioneered in cars with features such as Tesla's Autopilot and BMW's traffic jam assistant.
