By bringing together insurance companies, AI developers, academics, regulators, and consumer advocacy groups, we create a dynamic environment where innovative ideas and best practices thrive.

These guidelines address the unique challenges and opportunities that AI presents in underwriting, claims processing, pricing, and other insurance-related functions. Our goal is to ensure that AI is used responsibly, with fairness and respect for policyholders.
Transparency and Accountability: We advocate for transparency and accountability in AI systems used by insurers. By emphasizing clear documentation, explainability, and accountability mechanisms, we aim to enhance trust and enable stakeholders to understand and challenge the decisions made by AI models.
Bias Mitigation and Fairness: We strive to eliminate biases in AI algorithms used in insurance. Our focus is on achieving fair and equitable outcomes throughout the insurance process, from underwriting to claims settlement. We are committed to developing guidelines and metrics to measure and address biases and discrimination.
