The process of insurance underwriting determines whether insurance company will accept an application for insurance.

The proposed framework certainly does not pretend to replace a human underwriter by an electronic one. Rather, it aims at producing viable estimations regarding the clients risk levels, allowing to speed-up the underwriting process and to utilize new potentials
