Application: Method of controlling for undesired factors in machine learning models (Patent ID: US20230401647A1)

The patent filed by State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. describes a method that involves training a machine learning model, specifically a neural network, to evaluate insurance applicants based on image or audio data while excluding undesired factors such as age, sex, ethnicity, and race. The trained model receives an image of the applicant, analyzes it without considering the excluded factors, and suggests an appropriate insurance premium based only on the remaining desired factors. This approach aims to prevent prejudice or discrimination in the underwriting process by controlling for undesired factors that may influence the evaluation.

The method involves training two neural networks - one to correlate appearance with health-related characteristics and another to focus on the undesired factors. These networks are then combined to analyze the applicant's image and determine health-related characteristics without considering the excluded factors. The system can receive images via communication elements, such as still images or video recordings, and is designed to suggest insurance premiums based on the analyzed data. By utilizing this method, insurance companies can make more objective and fair decisions in the underwriting process, ensuring that premiums are determined based on relevant factors rather than potentially biased considerations.
