Technology is making quantum leaps in all business sectors and insurance is no exception. Technology solutions are going to revolutionize the way insurance and the processes surrounding underwriting, claims and loss prevention move forward.

“InsurTech” is a term applied to the many segments of new technology that are disrupting the insurance space. Many innovations are emerging to help cut costs, increase efficiency, and transform business lines, including telematics, wearables, blockchain, predictive analytics, chatbots, and artificial intelligence. This session will illustrate how these game-changers could alter risk management as we currently know it.
