How robots and human claim agents can co-exist: Instead of hiring more claim agents, we adopt a machine-learning approach to streamline key processes within our business. AirHelp bots analyze the hundreds of thousands of claims sent to our agents. This knowledge is then distilled into a 'statistical model' which separates claims into two categories for processing: eligible and not eligible.
