Accelerating the insurance industry’s digital transformation with AI

The Cytora team recognised that - unlike the simplicity of consumer car insurance - applying for commercial insurance is an arduous process that can take weeks. With its non-transparent pricing and use of outdated models, commercial insurance had not adapted to the needs of modern society. Cytora changes this. The company applies AI to public and proprietary data, including property construction features, company financials, and local weather - combined with an insurance company’s internal data - to better predict risk and ensure more transparent pricing.

Bringing the democratisation of industrial robots one step closer

Today, every single robotic task has to be manually hardcoded into its control software by experienced programmers. Every time a task changes, the software has to be re-engineered, which is extremely time consuming and expensive. The lack of industrial standards for programming languages and interfaces also means specific knowledge is required for a concrete robot platform. To rollout new and more flexible use cases, faster and at lower cost, robots need to be more highly adaptive and easy to use. Enter Wandelbots. The company enables anyone to program industrial robots with smart clothing. Sensor-attached jackets and gloves track human motion in real-time and transfer this to robotic movement, so non-experts are able to guide robots through a task by example.

Revolutionizing healthcare communication

Medical professionals are faced with an increasingly fragmented healthcare system and outdated methods of communication (fax, pagers, landlines). This results in key patient data being siloed and time wasted trying to access the right information. To ensure the right teams have access to vital patient data at the right time, healthcare professionals have started to use consumer messaging apps, such as WhatsApp, in the clinical workplace. This presents significant security and compliance risks. Siilo offers a alternative, breaking down healthcare communication barriers with a user-friendly app and keeping patient data secure.
