Project Overview

"QBE Insurance Group (QBE) announces today that QBE Ventures has closed an investment into Cytora, a three year old London-based start-up that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and open source data to help commercial insurers lower loss ratios, grow premiums and improve expense ratios.

The Cytora Risk Engine, driven by machine learning algorithms, combines an insurer’s internal data on a specific cover with external information from a broad spectrum of sources. This generates a risk score, which provides enhanced insight into expected claims activity on the whole portfolio and also at an individual risk level.

The Cytora Risk Engine uses articial intelligence to learn the patterns of different risks and loss outcomes over time and computes a rank, score, and price for every property and company in the population."
