Cytora, the artificial intelligence company powering a new way for commercial insurers to target, select and price risk, added Professor Ted Briscoe to its scientific advisory board earlier this month.

Ted will play a key role in advancing Cytora’s approach to understanding commercial risk by leveraging unstructured data, along with fellow University of Cambridge professor Bill Byrne, who also joined the company recently.

“Utilising the latest innovations in deep learning and natural language processing, Cytora can gauge risk in anything from insurance underwriting to your daily commute. It’s exciting to be working with such a talented and passionate team.
— Ted Briscoe

Ted is the professor of computational linguistics at the University of Cambridge and the inaugural director of the Alta Institute, which conducts research into automated language teaching and assessment. He has published over 100 research articles and three books in the areas of automated speech and language processing.
