Recently, at the Exponential Finance conference in New York, I was lucky enough to host a great panel with Chris Cheatham from Risk Genius, Ana He, Hyper Science and Carol Zacharias from QBE. The resulting discussion led to some great insights and commentary from startups and importantly what as a traditional insurer they want and need from AI.
If you didn't get a chance to see this in person, hopefully the video will be online soon too. In the meantime, the Digital Insurance article provides some great insight into the discussion.
The key to artificial intelligence startups' success in insurance is proving they can fix carriers underwriting and policy distribution woes, according to Carol Zacharias, QBE North America’s SVP of underwriting counsel for specialty insurance. “Solve their problems, even if it isn’t your end game, and [carriers] will use your tech,” she said, during a panel discussion at the Exponential Finance conference in New York.
