Concurrent Breakout Sessions
Actuarial Science Meets Data Science
Do you have students that excel in math or statistics, and/or enjoy using data to solve real world problems? Actuaries & Data Scientists are two of the highest paid and most sought-after positions in insurance. Companies that can navigate traditional actuarial practices and blend new data sources and analytics will have the competitive edge.
Artificial Intelligence and the New Customer Expectation
AI is already here, are your students ready for it? The insurance industry is adapting to artificial intelligence and machine learning to improve the customer experience. From customer service apps and AI-driven chatbots to claims processing automation, AI has a growing role in insurance and is here to stay.
Connected Cars, Wearable Tech, and Drones, Oh My!
Are your students excited by the latest technology? The internet of things (IoT) is sweeping across the globe rapidly, connecting everything from cars to toothbrushes. Drones are capturing real-time visuals on crop conditions and property damage after a natural disaster. This tech is driving changes in customer behavior and brand new information and user data, with the potential to inform and drastically improve various realms of insurance – but who will help the industry understand and adopt the new tech?
Coverage for Your Coverage: Cyber Security in the Tech Era
Do you have students that are computer geniuses? The next hacker whizzes? Companies more and more need help combatting all the cyber threats out there to protect their customers and privileged information. As the world gets more and more deeply connected, so too come new vulnerabilities and added importance around avoiding any breach.
