Zurich Insurance starts using AI to process personal injury claim

Zurich said it recently introduced AI claims handling and saved 40,000 work hours as a result

Zurich Insurance is deploying artificial intelligence in deciding personal injury claims after trials cut the processing time from an hour to just seconds, its chairman said. 
"We recently introduced AI claims handling, and saved 40,000 work hours, while speeding up the claim processing time to five seconds," Tom de Swaan told Reuters.
The insurer had started using machines in March to review paperwork, such as medical reports. 
"We absolutely plan to expand the use of this type of AI (artificial intelligence)," he said. 
Insurers are racing to hone the benefits of technological advancements such as big data and AI as tech-driven startups, like Lemonade, enter the market.
Lemonade promises renters and homeowners insurance in as little as 90 seconds and payment of claims in three minutes with the help of artificial intelligence bots that set up policies and process claims. 
De Swaan said Zurich Insurance, Europe's fifth-biggest insurer, would increasingly use machine learning, or AI, for handling claims. 
"Accuracy has improved. Because it's machine learning, every new claim leads to further development and improvements," the Dutch native said. 
Japanese insurer Fukoku Mutual Life Insurance began implementing AI in January, replacing 34 staff members in a move it said would save 140 million yen ($1.3 million) a year. 
British insurer Aviva is also currently looking at using AI. 
De Swaan said he does not fear competition from tech giants like Google-parent Alphabet or Apple entering the insurance market, although some technology companies have expressed interest in cooperating with Zurich.
"None of the technology companies so far have taken insurance risk on their balance sheet, because they don't want to be regulated," he said. 
"You need the balance sheet to be able to sell insurance and take insurance risk," he added.

Introduction to statistics | Definition, Scope and Limitations

Introduction to Statistics:In the modern world of computers and information technology, the importance of statistics is very well recognised by all the disciplines. Statistics has originated as a science of statehood and found applications slowly and steadily in Agriculture, Economics, Commerce, Biology, Medicine, Industry, planning, education and so on. As on date there is no other human walk of life, where statistics cannot be applied. Origin and Growth of Statistics: The word ‘Statistics’ and ‘Statistical’ are all derived from the Latin word Status, means a political state. The theory of statistics as a distinct branch of scientific method is of comparatively recent growth. Research particularly into the mathematical theory of statistics is rapidly proceeding and fresh discoveries are being made all over the world. Meaning of Statistics:Statistics is concerned with scientific methods for collecting, organising, summarising, presenting and analysing data as well as deriving valid c…

Handy Practical Guide to Machine Learning Algorithms for Beginners

Broadly, there are 3 types of Machine Learning Algorithms.. 1. Supervised LearningHow it works: This algorithm consist of a target / outcome variable (or dependent variable) which is to be predicted from a given set of predictors (independent variables). Using these set of variables, we generate a function that map inputs to desired outputs. The training process continues until the model achieves a desired level of accuracy on the training data. Examples of Supervised Learning: Regression,Decision Tree, Random Forest, KNN, Logistic Regression etc. 2. Unsupervised LearningHow it works:In this algorithm, we do not have any target or outcome variable to predict / estimate.  It is used for clustering population in different groups, which is widely used for segmenting customers in different groups for specific intervention. Examples of Unsupervised Learning: Apriori algorithm, K-means.
3. Reinforcement Learning:How it works:  Using this algorithm, the machine is trained to make specific de…

5 steps to successfully learn machine learning by yourself

How to learn Machine learning? Learning machine learning is not a big deal but if you want to be an expert in any field you need someone as a mentor. So try to follow some professional machine learning blogs like Shout Future, Kdnuggets, Analytics Vidhya etc., and if you have any doubts, clarify it through forums or directly ask in comments.


I realised the growth and development of machine learning in future will be incredible, so started to learn Machine learning back in 2013. I started from scratch and I confused a lot. Because I don't know what to do and where to start.
I think you are also like me! Here I mentioned step by step learning process to become a professional machine learning engineer yourself.

1.Getting Started:

Find out what is machine learning.Skills to become machine learning engineer.Attend conferences and workshops.Interact with experienced people directly or through social media.2. Learn Basics of Mathematics and statistics:Start to learn Descriptive and Infere…
