The Capital One Services LLC invention works as follows

The present disclosure is a system and method for generating real time quotes using machine-learning algorithms. The system can include a processor communicating with a client, as well as a storage medium that stores instructions to cause the processor, when executed, to perform operations such receiving an image from the client of a car, extracting features from the image and using machine learning algorithms, identifying attributes of the car, based upon the attributes identified by the vehicle; determining the make and model of the automobile, obtaining comparative information based in part on this determined make and model; and transmitting a calculated quote for the vehicle for display on

Background for Image analysis and identification using Machine Learning with Output Estimation

Customers have limited options for getting accurate quotes and prices when trying to finance a car purchase. In a typical scenario, a client visits an automobile dealer and chooses the vehicle they want to buy. After negotiating a vehicle’s price, the customer fills out an extensive credit application and provides all the information required to complete financing. The customer then signs the contract containing the terms of the financing and purchase, including the APR and monthly payments.

Some customers may also apply for prequalification before selecting a car. The customer must fill out an application, which includes information about their income, employment status, place of residence, desired amount of financing, and any other personal details. The lender will provide an estimate for the amount of financing and the maximum amount that can be approved if the application is approved. With the pre-qualification approved, the customer goes to an automobile dealer and chooses a car. The customer fills out a second credit application, and any additional information needed to complete financing. The customer then signs the contract containing the terms of the financing and purchase after receiving dealership approval.

However, such well-known techniques of auto financing have many drawbacks. Customers must, for example, endure a long, manual and multi-step financing process. If you try to use pre-qualification techniques, the quotes and terms of financing can be inaccurate. Moreover, the actual vehicle information might not be available when the customer is seeking financing. A customer’s ability to change their mind can be limited if they choose a vehicle to get a more accurate quote before applying for financing. If, for example, the customer decides to buy a new vehicle at the dealership, which is a very common occurrence, they may have to apply for financing again for the new vehicle.

There is a need for systems and methods that provide on-demand quotes for auto financing for specific vehicles in real-time. The disclosed systems provide a solution for this problem.

Embodiments” of the disclosure provide real-time auto financing quotes on demand for specific vehicles using machine learning methods and systems. The quotes that result can be displayed on the device of the user using augmented-reality systems and methods. The disclosed embodiments are a significant improvement over subjective, manual and multi-step processes in the prior art.

Disclosed embodiments can include a machine learning-based system for processing images including vehicles. The system can include a processor communicating with a client device, and a storage medium that stores instructions.

A vehicle’s make and model can be determined based on identified vehicle attributes. These operations can also include gathering comparison information, based in part at least on the identified make and model. Estimating a quote for a vehicle using the comparison information, and transmitting that estimate to the client device.
