The course material is dated - it would be good to refresh content more regularly. However, very difficult to keep current as this space changes so rapidly.

I expected this to go more into detail on the types of technology, how they're applied. It was more market focused, lots of numbers about the market size and number of investments in InsurTech and RE Tech (numbers that in 2020 are also outdated). As a result, the quizzes also had too much focus on generally useless number memorization. It also felt like a list of tech companies and a brief description of their business and funding.

Great courses where we've seen the intersection of finance, technology and big data for delivering innovative products for democratizing the access to services in several areas and across a wide segment of population including the enormous and hitherto financially excluded base of the pyramid. We hope AI would transcend into more useful and less mundane applications. We also hope that as people's hard earned money is involved, regulations would take care of cyber frauds, financial frauds and would be a deterrent for fly-by-night operators who, unfortunately thrive concomitantly with the great pioneers in an evolving space.

Amazing educational journey to achievements of AI in finance.

Dear Wharton,

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the educational program on AI that you organized online. I found the information to be incredibly valuable and the speakers to be knowledgeable and engaging.

I learned so much from the program, and it has sparked my interest in exploring AI further. The way the speakers were able to break down complex concepts and make them accessible to the audience, even through an online format, was truly impressive.

I am grateful to have had the opportunity to attend this program online, and I hope to participate in future events hosted by your organization, both online and in-person. Thank you again for all of your hard work in putting together such a valuable and educational experience.

Sincerely, Ionas

This course provides great concepts of AI and its of applications in relevant areas of finance, in particular insurance and Real estate. It's well structured and presented in coherent way that is easy to follow. The course helps me understand why and how AI and technology are chaging the way business are developed and carried out in these industries. The interviews (Case studies) with the big player such as Vanguard and Betterment executives give an opportunity to hear great insights from the perspecive of an actual FinTech leading company. I recommend the course.

The applications mentioned are put across in succinct and practical way but it draws context to US in particular rather than an overall (in context to other countries).

People in Finance with keen sense towards technology will find this greatly useful along with people in tech coinciding with finance as well.

Very nicely done by the Instructor. Just the correct amount of rigor for a course like this.

Easier that this would have made it too elementary and if it had been too rigorous it would have been discouraging for someone just looking for a better understanding

The course is great and in summarised detail on the Application of AI, InsurTech, and Real Estate Technology. The courses give an eagle-eyed overview of the subject than personally going through multiple websites and collecting unrelated information.
