Alan is mostly known for its digital health insurance product. The purpose of a health insurer is to cover users for their health expenses. The health insurer needs to be informed that user A went to doctor B and spent amount X. In France, this happens mostly automatically when the user swipes their social security card. Still, there are many cases where documents need to be sent by the users themselves. Alan users can send their health insurance documents via their mobile app. We receive thousands of them every day.

Deploying machine learning models into a production environment is a difficult task. Currently, the common practice is to have an offline phase where the model is trained on a dataset. The model is afterwards deployed online to make predictions on new data. Therefore, the model is treated as a static object. In order to learn from new data, the model has to be retrained from scratch. This deployment pattern is sometimes referred to as the lambda architecture.
