Talk abstract: How Flock is using advanced simulation and open datasets to power a motor risk model that adapts to changes in the environment as they happen. The session will cover exciting applications of simulations to model risk in motor insurance. We’ll look into the main causes of road accidents, and show how connectivity is allowing us to better understand why they happen. The session will provide a high-level overview, and no prerequisite knowledge is required.
