Scary and Exciting: Where Is Insurtech Going?

Changes in technology and data, in societal trends, and in behaviors open up amazing possibilities

Key Takeaway

Innovators are moving on from the low-hanging fruit and looking at the core problems facing the insurance industry. 

The world is changing for insurers, for customers, and for the widening universe of companies connecting the two.

Computer vision, conversational AI, robotics and drones, genomics, sensors, and blockchain, among others, continue to shake up this traditionally staid industry.  Where should we look for the most significant change?  Innovators are moving on from the low-hanging fruit and looking at the core problems facing the industry.

Those companies on the bleeding and leading edge – like Tractable (robotics and drones), Lapetus (computer vision), Betterview (drones), and Notion (sensors) – are focusing on solutions rather than just fancy technology, and in the process, bringing value and meeting today’s real challenges.

Take a moment to stand with Matt Leonard and Prashanth Gangu at the intersection of technology and risk and look beyond the shiny toys and try to discover what new could look like.  Here’s their keynote from the recent InsureTech Connect 2017 gathering of nearly 4,000 innovators in Las Vegas.
