Win a $1000 Scholarship

We understand that schooling is an expensive affair and we acknowledge the fact that it can be burdensome for some students and their families.The sum of costs incurred from tuition fees along with other associated expenses, such as housing, books, and school supplies, can turn into tens of thousands of dollars. To make things a little easier, we are pleased to be offering an annual $1,000. Learn more about how Surex took advantage of Artificial Intelligence here. 

 

 

Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence is always in the news, a hot topic that crosses different industries and generations. Surex was one of the first insurance brokerages to use AI and really leverage this alongside machine learning. “AI has changed the way society and business function today. Can AI be a tool all business can use to succeed or is there a time and place for this technology??”
