Fukoku Mutual Life Insurance believes it will increase productivity by 30% and see a return on its investment in less than two years.

The firm said it would save about 140m yen (1m) a year after the 200m yen (1.4m) AI system is installed this month.

Maintaining it will cost about 15m yen (100k) a year.
The system is based on IBMs Watson Explorer, which, according to the tech firm, possesses cognitive technology that can think like a human, enabling it to analyse and interpret all of your data, including unstructured text, images, audio and video.
