SIU Today Fall 2021 - 8
AI is really becoming table stakes in the insurance industry when
it comes to fraud prevention and investigation. However, it is no
longer good enough just to say that we're using AI: it's imperative
to pay heed to transparency and explainability in the use of AI,
fairness, and most certainly, accountability.
The bottom line is: AI for insurance fraud cannot be a " black box "
technology, where only results matter and the internal workings
of the system aren't viewed as important.
In summary, we see the pace of change continuing to
accelerate. Autonomous technology will play a key role in
helping insurers combat fraud.
One final note: Humans who are tasked with fighting insurance
fraud are not going to be replaced by AI, but investigators who
fail to use artificial intelligence will be replaced. The world
isn't in a place where insurance fraud investigators could turn
100% of decisions over to machines. So, having human experts
who have been trained in making fair decisions, accompanied
by a technology system that provides contextual guidance,
is the way forward for the insurance industry and AI. The
human is absolutely not replaceable, since they are the final
" safety valve " in ensuring that AI technology is not working
It is an exciting and challenging time to work in the insurance
industry as it has always been!
