IT Matters

Accelerate your market business with the power of AI

Lloyd's Library, Lloyd's Building, One Lime Street, London EC3M 7HA,

Wednesday 14 September 2022

12:00PM - 14:00PM


Market businesses today (irrespective of size) experience no shortage of data in terms of quantity; the challenge is tapping into the enormous potential of that collected data and extracting value from it as a resource.  Businesses also need to be fleet-footed to keep pace with changing technology and consumer behaviour. Meaning business strategies now must be seamlessly interwoven with ever-expanding digital and data strategies that address not only the web but also mobile, social media and whatever innovation that lies in wait around the corner.

Insurers, brokers, agents, and underwriters are rolling-out an array of new Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications, platforms, technologies, and digitised processes ~ so what’s in store this year? And will the latest AI innovations boost business or bash it? 

With the help of leading business technology commentators and market subject matter experts, this forum sheds light on some of the ‘newer-than-new’ market AI advances that are bucking the trend, by showing amazing results in reducing costs and introducing step-change improvements, project success and performance.

Who Should Attend

This 75-minute fast paced, thought provoking briefing is tailored to the needs of C-Level, underwriters, brokers, IT, security, data scientists, operations, compliance, analysts and finance professionals who work in the Lloyd’s and London insurance market. If relevant to other colleagues within your company then please forward this e-mail to them. Thank you.
