Make sure you gain and deploy the same competencies of you are to be a leader on this increasingly disruptive insurance market.
Insurance firms often struggle to gain value from their data. Structured data systems and architecture have often locked data into a source. By utilising the unstructured data that surrounds a claim, however, a more complete picture of the claim can be built and machine learning can be applied to tap into this broader spectrum of data sources. For example, in a car accident, machine learning could enable the claims adjuster to tap into context such as the weather conditions, dash cam videos or data gathered by the city’s smart transportation system.
