In this week's episode, we were joined by Jonathan Shapiro Jonathan is Co-Founder and Director of Optalitix. Optalitix is an artificial intelligence and data company that works across several verticals of which Insurance is just one so this was an excellent opportunity to talk about AI in a broader context - how are we in the world of Insurance shaping up against other sectors?
