Your role in the team

Data has been at the heart of the insurance industry for many years and the amount generated daily is growing exponentially.

A huge opportunity exists to create massive disruption to the insurance model due to technology improvements, which allows us to uncover greater insights.

The Artificial Intelligence Centre of Excellence (AI COE) team will create an intense learning and development environment to develop skills at the cutting edge of technology.

The resources on this team will be responsible for researching, designing, and building systems through implementation of supervised and unsupervised machine-learning techniques.

Technologies and methodologies applied will include machine learning, information retrieval, artificial intelligence, computer vision, natural language processing, and / or ontology engineering technologies.

Incumbents will work both individually and with small teams to envision and realize cutting-edge ideas through rapid prototyping, development and deployment.

Teams will work on business problems and Proof of Concepts to help determine which opportunities to pursue further and share these findings to assist Allstate’s future product development.

As an Applied Machine Learning Engineer, you will be responsible for multiple major technical aspects and setting direction in the AI field.

You will work with both our internal partners, vendors, and academic partners to ensure that Allstate products are utilizing the latest and best Machine Learning (ML) technologies.
