Technology is transforming the way people live, work and play as well as their expectations. It is also transforming the life and health insurance sector, with insurers exploring how they can deploy technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) within their operations.
At the 2019 SCOR Annual Conference, Sylvain Gauden, Chief Underwriting Officer for Marine and Energy at SCOR Global P&C, led a panel that explored how industries leverage technology and data – including blockchain, big data, artificial intelligence and predictive models – to better monitor their supply chains and improve security and services. Panel members included Francoise Carli of SICMEC; Lars Henneberg of MAERSK; Michel Josset of FAURECIA; and Pauline Des Vallières of SCOR Global P&C.
