Major features & technology used:

Chisel AI uses natural language processing, machine learning, and named entity recognition to extract, classify, and interpret unstructured data from a variety of insurance documents at superhuman speeds. Natural Language Processing or NLP is a machine’s ability to read language like a human, pulling relevant pieces of language, assigning contextual meaning to the words, and intelligently analyzing structured and unstructured text. Through model reinforcement learning, the machine continues to learn over time, getting better and better. Chisel AI also can recognize 500+ insurance specific named entities such as limits, premiums, deductibles, types of coverage, exclusions, endorsements, territories of coverage, outstanding conditions, statements of value, loss run reports, etc.
