Zapata AI and KPMG UK Successfully Collaborate on Risk and Operational Modeling For Leading Global Insurance Firm


Collaboration led to a reduction in the time required to deliver a risk compliance model by more than 1,000x

BOSTON, June 25, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zapata Computing Holdings Inc. (“Zapata AI”) (Nasdaq: ZPTA), the Industrial Generative AI company, and KPMG UK, a leading audit, tax, and advisory services firm, recently completed a successful client project to streamline the compliance models of a leading global insurance firm.

The project aimed to transform the client’s risk, operations, and compliance modeling by leveraging Zapata’s cutting-edge analytics, optimization, and generative AI capabilities.

KPMG’s actuaries, working with Zapata’s data engineers, converted one of the client’s compliance models, comprised of tens of millions of inputs, and built an optimized solution with innovative algorithms.

This new approach reduced the compute time it would have taken for these models by more than 1,000x, while maintaining accuracy and enabling the client to meet compliance requirements. Previously, the client had been submitting approximations instead of actual finished calculations.

"KPMG UK is one of the most trusted professional services firms when it comes to helping clients manage risks, comply with regulations, and improve overall business performance. The transformative results we’ve demonstrated for this insurance client are applicable to any company that struggles to manage and maintain high complexity, high resource computational models on legacy systems and architectures. Zapata’s ability to quickly deliver value is especially meaningful for our clients, given the current environment of scarce compute and data science resources. Zapata AI is proud to partner with KPMG UK to combine our technical and domain expertise and thought leadership to deliver client value,” said Christopher Savoie, CEO and Co-founder of Zapata AI.

Feargal De Burca, Partner at KPMG UK, said: “The team at Zapata AI has shown remarkable results in streamlining large, complex model workflows for our insurance client. Zapata’s expertise and technological solutions have the potential to transform how financial services and insurance companies function by delivering efficiencies and innovative digital transformation programs.”
