Metis and Dataiku join to host two talks on user-focused data science and building a more comprehensive view of what individuals really want.

While virtual assistants have never sounded more human and as cars become driverless, companies still have to deal with a massive amount of mail. From unsolicited mail and bills to registered mail, mail processing solutions are a necessity. In an effort to bring AI to mail processing, we will present a prototype we've developed for a client in the insurance industry. Using Computer Vision and Deep Learning techniques, it automatically processes typed and hand-written letters to send them to the correct department within the organization.
