Perhaps I should eat a tangerine and become a SME, too.

I don't disagree with the sentiment in the OP but in the short run the largest gains will be found by cleaning up data pipelines. More and better quality data > fancier ML algo imo.

I’m not too concerned. Politicians are irrational when it comes to healthcare.

When I think back on some of the modeling projects I have done over the years, there are some where I have my doubts about A.I.. For example, when fitting claim severity models, we use smaller claims and the model parameters to extrapolate the frequency of larger claims. There is also loss reserving where losses in the upper triangle are used to extrapolate claims in the lower triangle.

Politicians are for the most part perfectly rational when it comes to healthcare.
They just aren't playing the game we were taught they play in civics class.
