MS&AD to Deploy Tractable’s AI in Japan to Accelerate Recovery of Insurance Claims
One of the largest property and casualty insurers, MA&AD has announced the intention of using Tractable’s AI to speed up the processes regarding auto claims and recovery for policyholders. Tractable’s AI works via computer vision and analyzes car damage as seen from human vision to determine the extent of the damage.
The solution will be deployed across MS&AD’s both subsidiaries Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance and Aioi Nissay Dowa Insurance. It will be used for hundreds of thousands of auto claims, accelerating the overall two weeks per claim process. It will also lead to the wide-scale and mass adoption of AI across MS&AD’s operations.
MS&AD operates across 40 countries with its core units MSI and ADI having auto operations in Asia, the US, and Europe.
