The Co-operative Bank has launched a loans service, which it says will use machine learning to tailor loans to individual customers.

The bank has teamed up with Freedom Finance, the personal loan broker, on the service.

The Co-op said through machine learning and its technology, customers will be able to carry out a search of unsecured personal loan options which will not negatively impact their credit rating.

The Co-op said it has tailored a panel of lenders, which excludes payday lenders.

Loans will be available form £1,000 to £25,000 over a period of one to seven years, with interest rates ranging from 3.1 percent APR to 39.9 APR.

The bank said applicants will be able to receive funds on the same day as they apply for loans.

The Battle of Business Intelligence: Data Discovery vs. Traditional BI

We’re at a tipping point where using data to inform all types of business decisions is becoming the norm. With more and more data available to users and the increasingly competitive business landscape, it’s not surprising that the needs of business users are becoming more complex.

As more organizations turn to data analytics to deliver value, the battle between BI tools is heating up. Data discovery tools sprouted up to solve the need for speed, while traditional BI solutions were architected to deliver every possible analytic issue and one universal picture of the business. So in the battle of BI who will be crowned victor: data discovery or traditional BI?

Surprisingly, it’s not one or the other; rather there is a time and place for both.

BI has long had a reputation for being difficult to implement and equally difficult to use. Organizations would bring together a team of very

Thank You, Small Business

It has been a trying several weeks, but we have so much to be proud of.

It is hard to believe that six weeks ago we were all living life as we previously knew it and making plans for the life we thought was ahead.

It has been an exhausting six weeks. It has been a frustrating and angering six weeks.  It has been a scary and anxiety-inducing six weeks. It has been a life- and business-altering six weeks. 

And yet, every day — over and over and over again — I have seen small-business owners around the world step up, persist and display the type of character that I am inspired by.
