BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Munich Re launches hurricane response tools

Munich Re launches hurricane response tools

Munich Reinsurance Co. on Tuesday launched damage prediction and claims services for insurers to use before and after hurricane losses.

Among the resources developed by the reinsurer’s Remote Industries team are:  damage predictions using aerial imagery and machine learning starting four days prior to an expected hurricane, aerial views available after the hurricane hits but prior to claims adjusters entering the affected area and damage assessments provided via machine learning algorithms.

The services are available in United States, including the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, the Bahamas and the Cayman Islands, a Munich Re statement said.

The services, which are provided by MR Service GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of Munich Re, are available to commercial and residential insurers, the statement said.
