This week Google released Lending DocAI,
a machine learning mortgage processing tool that aims to speed up mortgage applications. This is probably mostly for the American market, but it is interesting to see that Google dabbles in this field. The digital lending platform Roostify
is already using this in production.
As a side note, Amazon has launched a program to pay consumers for their data on non-Amazon purchases.
The program asks users to send in 10 receipts per month for any purchases made at non-Amazon retailers, earning a 10$ reward applied to their Amazon Balance. Who knew that your receipts could be this valuable?
