CetoAI uses AI to provide predictive analytics to the maritime insurance sector. The company uses existing data sources on ships of any size to increase vessel availability, prevent unexpected machinery failures, improve crew safety, manage risk, and reduce performance related emissions. CetoAI identifies breakdown risks in advance, resulting in greater vessel uptime and fewer insurance losses. 

Lab activity

Primary way aimed to improve insurance processes and tools whilst in the Accelerator: New sources of risk insight - data or models I Increasing access to insurance  

The programme helped with introductions to capacity providers, which accelerated CetoAI’s journey to becoming an MGA and coverholder. It also helped to close its investment round and increased the company’s brand awareness within the insurance market. In the Accelerator, CetoAI developed its Mechanical Performance Index which takes real-time data from a vessel to produce a standardised score.
