This event will be held online. Joining details are available on Moodle.

Speaker: Toby Staines, Applied Researcher, Tractable

Series: Data Bites

Imagine the scene: your car is damaged; your freedom is interrupted. You're faced with two paths: either have your insurance claim sent to a human, who may take weeks to make a settlement, or send your claim to an AI, which can settle in minutes. In this talk, we will explore how the latter is possible today.

Tractable’s AI is used today by global leaders – including Ageas in the UK, France’s Covéa, Japan’s Tokio Marine and Polish insurer Talanx-Warta – to analyse vehicle damage effectively and efficiently. With appraisals produced through the AI-driven platform in minutes, repairs can begin sooner, and people’s livelihoods can be restored more quickly.

About the speaker:

In 2016, having worked for six years as a business analyst in financial services, Toby decided to make a career change. He quit his job and started the MSc in Data Science at City. Since graduating, has worked in the research team at Tractable, developing their AI system for photo-based vehicle repair estimation.
