  • With P&C carriers diversifying underwriting operating functions are often a challenge. Centralized or field seems to drive org discussions. The applicability of learning machines, AI and Robotic process automation should help alleviate the desperate submissions into a single stream of data along with third party information from various sources such as Fitbit or fuel band IoT aware devices. Underwriting can be re-engineered again to focus on the exceptions and have the promise fulfilled of issuing complex risks quickly. I believe this will also apply to term life with restrictive limits and data access.

  • Hi Mike,

    An interesting example might be classifying normal and abnormal behaviour in operations teams. Abnormal behaviour might signify the new rising stars, fraudulent activity or the rise of a new trend the company needs to respond to. The trick is, getting the leaders in the organisation to wade through all that activity and look at the interesting bits - a use case that might apply to a learning system.


  • Hi Mike,

    To kick this off, here's another potential use case...

    Road traffic accidents: Analyse the images, locations, traffic data, climate data, vehicle data and claimant details to identify the causal relationships and apportion blame, with the objective of learning / adapting over time and settling the majority of claims with minimal intervention by claims assessors, CSRs, controllers and supply chain partners.

    Parts of this use case have been done already, however not as a single integrated learning system.



  • Mike ... I think that distribution would be a candidate. Determine the penetration rate within segements and efficiency of channels.

    Most insurers have some form of this in place, but the aware machine would have a broader spectrum and would be able to continuously refine the criteria in near real-time, allowing for more effective scenario planning and performance monitoring.
