Underwriting has always been the heart of the insurance industry. It is a process that enables underwriters to evaluate the level of risk involved in providing insurance to a person, home, car or anything valuable. Conventionally, underwriting has been a back-office work, but with the changing tradition, it is now shifting to being a front-office function. The role of underwriters has also changed with time. Unlike earlier when they had to depend on the information provided by the applicant, they are now using ML to estimate the risks that come with the information given.
