The insurance industry has always dealt in data, but it hasn't always been able to put that data to optimal use. With the rise of artificial intelligence, which analyzes and learns from massive sets of digital information culled from public and private sources, insurers are embracing the technology's many facets -- from machine learning and natural language processing to robotic process automation and audio/video analysis -- to provide better products. Customers, too, are benefitting from practices like comparative shopping, quick claims processing, around-the-clock service and improved decision management.

Liberty Mutual explores AI through its initiative Solaria Labs, which experiments in areas like computer vision and natural language processing. Auto Damage Estimator is one result of these efforts.
