Employee Type - Full-Time EmployeeExperience - Not SpecifiedIndustries - Management


Our CEO & Founder Ron Glozman was only trying to use his machine learning skillset to cut class and still get top grades. He was fed up with reading textbooks cover to cover and knew there had to be a better approach to studying (so he could maximize his time doing karaoke!). It was then he decided to use his machine learning skills to develop a text summarization and redaction app that would teach computers how to read. And although Ron didn’t know it at the time, his app laid the foundation for what is now Chisel AI, an innovator in machine learning solutions for the insurance industry.

Since then, Chisel AI has evolved to be the machine learning leader in the insurance space with software that reads insurance forms in milliseconds and extracts key policy information for some of the world’s largest companies. At Chisel AI, we make it possible for our customers to process data 400 times faster than before; allowing them to focus on nuanced and interesting work that drives real value for their customers.
