AusPost trials machine learning to manage unpaid bills
Australia Post has quietly created an email add-on tool that uses machine learning to find unpaid bills and itemise when they need to be paid.
The Bill Scanner tool is currently in open beta and is “available for Gmail, Outlook, Hotmail and Live accounts”. Users must sign in with their Google or Microsoft credentials.
Once connected to the email account, the tool scans the inbox for bills bearing the Postbillpay logo and barcode and “pulls [any] we find into Bill Scanner”, which is hosted on AWS.
The postal service said it would use undisclosed machine learning techniques to extract data from the bills and itemise them according to due date.
