AI: Opportunities And Threats For Our Industry

Benjamin Von Euw, Enterprise Architect, Industrial Alliance

Artificial intelligence is now part of our daily life. It is reshaping industries and economies – but insurance transformation has just begun.

For insurance – an industry that relies on data – AI offers the opportunity to increase precision in marketing, underwriting, risk mitigation, service, claims, and more.

But it's not magic.

Insurance organizations must prepare to break new ground, to embrace the unknowns and innovate in order to weather the upheaval that is to come.

Benjamin will share his hands-on experiences with early AI implementations and their impact.

Drones are changing the nature of property inspections for underwriting and – more frequently – claims purposes, literally offering new perspectives while keeping people out of harm's way.

This panel will look more closely inside the underwriting and claims domains at the value and impact of that application of technology, and then at the broader potential of the AI suite of tools.
