Mastering the Data – AI Tools for the Bedrock of Insurance

The insurance industry is data-rich, but its most vital resource is often stranded in legacy systems and across siloes. At the same time, the world is awash with ever-increasing volumes of data flowing from ever-multiplying sources.

Will insurance be left up data creek without a paddle? Or can it harness the power of AI to make use of internal and external, structured and unstrucutured data to generate deeper insights and deliver value?

If a whole new world of data is emerging, what are the implications for insurance?

Getting Started - Laying the Foundations for Implementing AI at Scale

When should insurers use AI? What challenges will they need to overcome? How should they approach implementation?

There’s no denying that legacy systems will hinder the development of intelligent applications, but should insurers be looking at partnering with InsurTechs as a way forward?

Unlocking the insights hidden in data and connecting them with actuaries and underwriters will deliver value, but how can the industry go about creating the agility and entrepreneurial spirit needed to capitalise on the AI opportunity?

Peering into the Black Box – The Regulatory Challenges of AI

Like any technologies that promise to fundamentally transform an industry, those grouped under 'AI' pose a number of regulatory challenges. While machine learning models are more granular and predictive, they are also less transparent: how should the industry approach regulators’ concerns that these models will be a ‘black box’? Could machine learning models teach themselves to discriminate? Which predictors should be off limits? Get the expert view on some of the most pressing resultatory issues around AI's use in insurance.
