Cloverleaf Analytics, Exavalu, and Socotra Announce the Launch of the Ethical AI in Insurance Consortium

The Consortium will unite insurtechs, insurers, influencers, and other organizations to take steps to ensure a safe, fair, and innovative future for AI in the insurance industry

AUSTIN, Texas, July 31, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Cloverleaf Analytics (Cloverleaf), the leader in insurance intelligence solutions, Exavalu, a leading global digital advisory and consulting company, and Socotra, provider of the industry's leading policy core and end-to-end insurance technology solutions, are excited to announce the launch of the Ethical AI in Insurance Consortium. The Consortium aims to foster responsible and transparent adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) for decision management in the insurance sector, bringing together insurance carriers, technology and solutions companies, regulators, and other key influencers.

With the expanding integration of AI in underwriting, claims processing, pricing, and other insurance functions, it is crucial to ensure fairness, transparency, and accountability throughout the industry. The Ethical AI in Insurance Consortium will address the challenges and opportunities associated with the use of AI in insurance, including algorithmic bias, customer acceptance, data integrity, and other areas used in product development, selling, servicing, and customer support for insurance products.

Cloverleaf, Exavalu, and Socotra are the Consortium's initial founding members, with additional founding members to be announced within weeks. The Consortium's core objectives include the creation of ethical technology development and operations guidelines; advocacy for insurers and the insured; collaboration and knowledge-sharing; and standardization.

The group will host quarterly webinars addressing key issues, as well as producing articles announcing new standards guidelines along with thought leadership papers throughout the year. The first two major initiatives for the Consortium are the development of an Ethical AI in Insurance Code of Ethics and launching a research project based on a survey of insurance executives determining attitudes, readiness, and use of Generative AI, large language models, and machine vision.

"Exavalu provides advisory and technology services to insurers who seek to accelerate digital transformation, core modernization and enhanced customer experience. Advancements in AI technology offer a high promise but often challenge carriers with how to utilize AI effectively and ethically for decision support," said Abby Hosseini, Chief Digital Officer at Exavalu. "This uncertainty coupled with excitement about the promise of Generative AI is resulting in some carriers struggling with algorithmic bias and the proper orchestration of the AI technology for inline augmented decision making. Many carriers are embarking on controlled experiments while others sit on the sidelines. The Consortium is about empowering carriers to achieve real value from AI while ensuring fair, high-quality, transparent and innovative products and services for the insured. This can be achieved through people-centric, fair, trustworthy, and responsible business practices to model development, analytics and risk management."

"The adoption of fresh technology is a critical component of any insurer's strategy for market leadership and differentiation, and it must be done responsibly, with as much knowledge and perspective as possible," said Michael Benayoun, Director of Partnerships at Socotra. "Our modern, cloud-native perspective goes hand in hand with the incorporation of AI into insurer operations, and we are excited to leverage all of the benefits it has to offer. The Consortium will be a strategic asset for carriers to learn best practices as they leave legacy technologies behind while strategically deriving meaningful benefits from the cloud and AI."

"Consumers are excited and carriers are optimistic as technology continues to show promise for improving products, services, and everyday life," said Robert Clark, Founder and CEO of Cloverleaf Analytics. "The insurance industry has the opportunity to set a quality example of how to use AI responsibly, and this Consortium aims to be a beacon of light for insurers and technology companies that need help on this journey."

The Consortium will reveal the results of its Generative AI readiness, attitude, and adoption survey during a webinar with other members in early Q4. While Cloverleaf sparked the idea for the Consortium, it will not have any additional influence on the projects that the Consortium completes over any other member.
