REALITY CHECK ON THE USE OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE APPLIED TO CLAIMS
This article aims to raise the impact of the use of visual intelligence (a branch of artificial intelligence) regarding possible fraud, as well as reliability failures in its application to claims. After a study with more than 6 systems we have carried out an in-depth examination of current and future techniques in the coming years.
In the first place, we want to point out that this article does not want to be a treatise where it is exposed what AI is, as well as its different branches, but an article that shows the reality of the use of the technology that concerns us, and if it can have or not a real and safe technical application in the insurance sector.
Can AI correctly detect real damage, can it replace touch, experience-based intuition, and the 3D view of a person?
After this exposition, we present here a risk table of the tests that we have carried out on a sample of 20,000 damages in cars, pointing out that they have been carried out in optimal conditions of photographic quality, with a good resolution, cleanliness of the car, and photographic angles, Therefore, the failure or lack of these systems cannot be excused for these reasons.
Risk of economic loss due to fraud committed against the system.
This table has been calculated for ranges of assessment and sectoral average frequency in Spain. Thus, for example, we have the range from 0 to €300 with a frequency of occurrence of 28% and an average cost of damage of €180. After this data, the claims cost has been calculated for a base of one hundred thousand claims, where an estimate of the possible savings that this technology can introduce with respect to the current costs of the human process is made, and then four fraud hypotheses have been considered that You can easily perform the system, always from a point of view of defense of this technology, assuming fraud between 3% and 12% per section.
Some may think that this technology is not easy to fool. However, here we show a video in which it is seen that it is not difficult to do it, and given the world of social networks that we live in, these methods of fraud could quickly go viral.
Risk of economic loss due to system reliability failures.
This table is based on the reliability error of the AI system. In this case, we have taken into account the detection of false positives, that is, the system detects damage that really is not, data that we have obtained in the tests carried out in our study. For this, we have taken the most optimistic situations of the efficacy/reliability of the different systems tested.
Conclusion of the combination of the two tables.
Combining the result of the two tables, it is concluded that the use of this technology in the auto claims field is HIGH RISK, since this study concludes losses from the claims section of €0-300, losses of more than €200,000, more than 4%. loss, reaching up to 39% loss.
In the next article we will publish the analysis we are doing regarding its use to verify risks in contracting policies.
