For example:
Predicting flight delay likelihood that is used to individually price more than 20 million insurance policies.
Building virtual marketplace (similar to Amazon) for insurance products.
Detect important claims from vast datasets using ML models deployed on a Spark based platform and adding capabilities such as data drift and AI explainability.
We are a diverse chapter of experts, whose members sit in various locations across the globe. What brings us all together is our passion for what we do and eagerness to learn. Apart from working on the projects for our clients, we strive to further define the ML space in SwissRe and build strategic skills of the future.
