"Baseball or Insurance - it doesn't matter. If you challenge conventional wisdom, you will find ways to do things much better than they are currently done. Use data to transform the game!" - Billy Beane
Billy Beane, EVP of Baseball Operations of the Oakland A’s and star of bestseller book Moneyball, recently visited the Zesty.ai team. Billy shared his story about he leveraged data to forever change the 150 year old game. Billy likened Moneyball to Zesty.ai’s journey in Insurtech. He argued that transformation of the insurance industry requires embracing the digital age and is all about data. Billy also noted, underdogs with less financial resources can achieve outsized results by smartly leveraging data and technology, such as Artificial Intelligence by continuously disrupting the status quo.
Billy, thanks for the stories, jokes, and the life lesson on gaining “unfair competitive advantage”!
