The countdown to AIR’s Next Generation Models has begun! We will be releasing a Technical Preview for a subset of Next Generation Models (NGM) starting in 2021, with a full rollout across all models coming in 2022.

During this online seminar, the architects of AIR’s Next Generation Models will discuss our new modeling approach for commercial lines of business. AIR Principal Scientist Dr. Rafał Wójcik will explain our new methodology for capturing the secondary uncertainty in our damage estimates and how AIR’s next generation modeling framework accounts for coverage correlation when accumulating losses. AIR AVP of Product Development Ivelin Zvezdov will share how we will support new insurance terms and policy conditions to provide more realistic loss estimates.


When:  Tuesday, April 20, 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon EST
