Big Data in Insurance Webinar

January 30, 2018


A simple Google search for 'big data definition' returns over 70M hits in less than one second, and only one definition appears more than once among the first dozen hits. Is the fact that this volume and variety can be accessed with such velocity a testament to the democratization of data, or is the lack of clear veracity for any one definition a sign of revolution to come? Will insurance uses of big data be decided by insurance professionals like actuaries or regulators, or will consumers be the ultimate decision makers of how their data is used in insurance and beyond? In this session we use case studies to examine issues and stories surrounding big data in insurance, with a focus on regulation and governance issues. We also reflect on various solutions under discussion at both the national and state level to address big data and how actuaries can help decide its future.
