How is Artificial Intelligence Changing the Stop Loss Market?

Artificial intelligence, leveraging enhanced heterogeneous data assets and advanced computer models, is already having a profound effect on informing underwriting at the point of decision. Learn from four senior stop loss insurance practitioners how their companies have applied artificial intelligence to their underwriting processes, to reduce quote turnaround time and increase accuracy. Hear directly from these experts how AI has enhanced their underwriting operations, and in turn, their top and bottom lines. After brief opening remarks, the four speakers will engage in an interactive and candid fireside chat. Be sure to bring your questions for a live Q&A session. This is a rare opportunity to hear directly from industry leaders who have already taken the steps you may be considering, and the difference it has made.
