A survey live now in the market is aimed at P&C and L&A insurers and agents in North America.

Those mostly in the virtual space are artificial intelligence, blockchain, semantic technologies/cognitive computing, gamification, new payment technologies, biotech/genomics, and augmented/virtual reality.
