HDFC ERGO General Insurance Implements AI Enabled Solution to Automate Motor Claim SettlementsIn order to automate the complex process of motor claims, on November 2, 2020, HDFC ERGO General Insurance launched the AI (Artificial Intelligence) tool IDEAS (Intelligent Damage detection Estimation and Assessment Solution) for motor claim settlements.

  • The IDEAS module uses Neural Network image processing and Analytics, Machine Learning and Natural Language that supports instant damage detection as well as calculation of the claims estimate for the surveyors to help in motor claims settlement in real-time.
  • It is trained using more than 3,00,000 images over the last 2 years and has been integrated in the surveyor mobile app.

Points to be noted:

–e2e, HDFC ERGO’s Surveyor mobile application, was the first-of-its-kind mobile application launched for surveyors in 2017 which enabled surveyors to process entire motor own damage claims through mobile phones on a complete paperless basis.

–Now with the IDEAS module, the efficiency of surveyor’s will be improved thereby speeding the claims processing for ultimate benefit of the end customers.

–The IDEAS module does the rest wherein the entire process is done under three main functions which will read (vehicle number, make and model), detect (all vehicle parts, damaged parts, severity of damaged parts) and auto assess/estimate the claim amount, based on the damage and severity detection using the AI assisted intelligent rate masters. IDEAS module also minimises the risk of fraudulent claims.
