All agree that artificial intelligence has the potential to fundamentally transform the insurance industry. If, at its core, an insurance company exists to understand and price risk, what effect will the powerful analytical capabilities made possible by AI have? What are the implications of being able to model risk in a more granular fashion? What will the shift from predictive modelling to preventive modelling mean for the insurance business model? What organisational and cultural changes will the shift from being reactive to being proactive require?
