Advanced data and analytics capabilities hold the promise to change the way carriers and brokers do business. New data sources from the Internet of Things, aggregators, and third parties can provide a rich data set for making better predictions and identifying potential fraud. However, most legacy systems are not built to readily integrate with the new data sources. This event will feature an underwriting and a claims focused panel.


Learn how underwriters are balancing the costs of adding new data sources with the predictive benefits. Panelists will also discuss the potential ramification of using analytics and AI for improved predictive capability and the potential for over-fitting the data.


Also, learn how claims leaders are leveraging advanced data capabilities to augment the workflow of adjusters, cut the time necessary to adjust claims, and predict and prevent fraud early in the process. Panelists will also discuss the challenges of implementing new claims solutions across business lines and downstream with adjusters, TPAs, and IAs.
