AM Best will host a complimentary webinar, titled, “How Imagery Models are Delivering Ground Level Truth for Underwriting Risk,” sponsored by LexisNexis Risk Solutions, on Thursday, Oct. 6, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. (EDT). Carriers know that in-person inspections for underwriting the interior and exterior of a structure can be time-consuming and expensive. However, home and commercial insurers are discovering the advantages of using imagery models in their underwriting processes. Imagery models can help improve risk selection through the identification of existing risks, hazards and property conditions, as well as provide insights into insured to value ratios and replacement costs by assessing building materials and quality. Imagery models can be used to analyze millions of properties to provide a risk assessment for entire geographic areas. In this webinar, a panel of insurance analytics experts will discuss how using aerial and ground level imagery can create a more consistent and reliable picture of risk, limiting human error that can lead to misclassifications, elevated costs and higher risk.
