Startup Tractable has today announced that it has raised $25m in a Series C investment round to further its artificial intelligence (AI) to assist with accident and disaster recovery.

Tractable AI uses computer vision to assess damage to vehicles, buildings and infrastructure and provide rapid predictions of repair costs, speeding up the recovery process.

The funding round was led by Georgian Partners, with existing investors Insight Partners and Ignition Partners also participating, bringing the total raised by the startup to $55m.

Tractable is already operating in nine countries, with clients largely in the insurance market, including Ageas, Tokio Marine and Talanx-Warta.
