Improving Subrogation Prediction Through Text Analytics
Presented by: Chris Farris, Megaputer Intelligence
Subrogation provides insurers an opportunity to recover lost assets from parties at fault in auto accidents. However, identifying claims in which subrogation is a possibility can be a lengthy process. Automating this identification allows claims to be responded to more quickly and improves the efficiency of resource allocation to the subrogation attempt. Text Analysis of auto claim notes from adjustors can achieve this automation and provide an accurate list of likely subrogation opportunities.
10:40 – 11:15 am

- Tools for extracting standard and custom entities and relationships
- Typical results delivered to decision makers
11:15 – 11:50 am
Extracting Entities and Relationships from Medical Record and Legal Documents
Presented by: Ankit Shah, Megaputer Intelligence
Identifying useful entities from documents using text analysis can be tricky depending on many factors. We will look into a diverse set of entities that can be extracted automatically by default and explore the great possibilities of creating custom entity extraction techniques using linguistic rules for domain specific knowledge-targeting.
11:50 am – 1:10 pm
Lunch Break & Networking

Analyzing External Sources: Detecting Emerging Trends (NHTSA)
Presented by: Jun Yang, Megaputer Intelligence
External sources are under-leveraged by most insurance companies. Using data from NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), we will explore examples of late recalls and learn how these sources can be utilized to detect emerging issues that could have been better handled given enough warning.
1:45 – 2:20 pm
Advanced Analytics for Fraud Detection and Prevention
Presented by: Min Chen, Megaputer Intelligence
Fraud schemes in insurance is becoming more advanced with each passing year. The more data sources that can be analyzed to trace this malicious activity the better. Two case studies will illustrate data and textual analysis for improving the detection of fraud or abnormal behavior. In the first case study, several scenarios are examined based on health insurance claims. The second case study explores repeated property and casualty insurance claims that reveal critical attributes and targets suspicious adjustors.
2:20 – 2:55 pm
Employee Survey Analysis
Presented by: Aditya Kambhapati, Megaputer Intelligence
Lack of employee engagement is costly to a business. Gallup researchers estimate that disengaged workers cost U.S. businesses as much as $450 billion a year in lost productivity. We will discuss employee sentiment, important themes and areas of improvement across different job roles of the organization that could help companies improve the performance of their employees.
2:55 – 3:15 pm
Refreshments will be provided.
3:15 – 3:50 pm
Automated Generation of Associate Performance Scorecard (Call Center)
Presented by: Bipin Inamdar, Megaputer Intelligence

Social Media Data Analysis
Presented by: Lu Zhang, Megaputer Intelligence
Social media is used more effectively by some over others to obtain benefits such as receiving genuine feedback from customer posts, learning about current market needs and getting ahead of competitors.
