Machine Learning by Top Insurers

Machine Learning being used by over half of top insurers globally

Over half (54%) of the almost 200 insurance executives recently surveyed said that their organization was using Machine Learning for predictive analytical modelling. Of those deploying the technology, 70% said they were using it for risk modelling; followed by demand models (45%) and fraud detection (36%).
Despite being a relatively new trend, most organisations that use Machine Learning have already been able to realise measurable business benefits.

When asked about top benefits realised, according to a report as many as 57% of respondents cited greater analytical accuracy as one of the top benefits

Some of the key findings of the survey include:

  • Machine Learning adoption is becoming a significant trend, used by 54% of all respondents and 60% of those from companies with over 5,000 employees.
  • 90% of the survey respondents that use Machine Learning use it in pricing and product management, a result that is likely impacted by a large portion of the respondents coming from these functions.
  • When asked about the top benefits realized by their organizations, as many as 57% of the respondents cited greater analytical accuracy as one of the top three benefits.
  • The most significant promise and expected benefits of Machine Learning moving forward is in greater automation, productivity, and cost savings.
  • Despite the growing adoption, the vast majority of respondents admit significant knowledge gaps when it comes to Machine Learning.
