On March 1, 2023, Devron, a pioneer in artificial intelligence and machine learning for distributed and private data, announced its cooperation with Cover Whale Insurance Solutions, Inc., a top commercial trucking insurer and a rapidly expanding insurtech.
Using Devron's federated data science platform, Cover Whale will build and train AI models that can quickly add new and different data sources to estimate risk better, offer to coach drivers, and align premiums.
The Driver Safety Program offered by Cover Whale uses data science and AI to analyze risk and develop strategies to reduce it, making roads safer. The platform provided by Devron simplifies the process by enabling access to additional datasets and doing away with the requirement, cost, and privacy risk associated with relocating data. This federated method enables Cover Whale to design, train, and run more effective models to identify unsafe driving behaviors or circumstances more efficiently.
In the past, for businesses to extract, duplicate, and move large amounts of data to get insights, they were required to develop complicated infrastructures. Devron gets around this requirement, so Cover Whale can build and train machine learning models on datasets where they are already stored. These datasets may include, for example, claims information, various vehicle telematics, external data related to highways, weather conditions, and other such information to acquire a more informed perspective on risk.
Cover Whale has commissioned Devron to speed up ongoing data science projects, lay the groundwork for the future development of its operations, and enable faster access to various data sources, formats, and types while producing richer insights with less effort.
