With the fresh stream of progress in advanced machine learning techniques (e.g., the convolutional neural system for computer image recognition), artificial intelligence is closer than ever to replicating key characteristics of the human mind, such as conscious thought, logical argumentation, learning ability, and independent problem-solving.

This will dramatically transform the insurance sector from its contemporary status of "find and fix" to "divine and block. By gaining experience with technology, the movement of conversion will additionally be accelerated by insurance agents, brokers, customers, financial agents, and suppliers themselves.

According to McKinsey's analysis, 4 major technology trends are closely or directly related to artificial intelligence in insurance over the following 10 years.

1. The rise of data from networked devices

Sensor-enabled stuff has been used in industrial frameworks for quite some time, but the forthcoming years view a significant improvement in the amount of networked devices for consumers. Already existing autonomous cars, fitness trackers, smart home appliances, phones, and smartwatches will be accompanied by new rising classes of devices - clothing, glasses, medical gadgets, and shoes.

The flow of info from them will allow insurers to better understand their customers, leading to:

  • fresh insurance outputs,
  • extra personalized pricing,
  • ultimately real-time service delivery.

For example, an actuarial database-linked device that a customer carries with them at all times (a bracelet, an article of clothing) can calculate a personal risk assessment based on daily movements and the possibility and severity of potential incidents.

2. Developments in robotics

AI with additive production, also recognized as 3D printing, will fundamentally transform the insurance outputs of the prospect because in 2025 buildings created this way will be everywhere. The technique likewise be commercially vital in the following 10 years, such as:

  • programmable drones,
  • cars and agricultural equipment,
  • advanced surgical robots.

The share of autonomous vehicles could exceed 25% by 2030. The growing appearance of robotics in different spheres of daily life will turn danger zones and influence customer expectations.

3. Data ecosystems

In the near future, public and private organizations are likely to join forces to create data-sharing ecosystems for multi-purpose usage over industries. Standard open-source rules will appear as part of a unified cybersecurity regulatory framework. Data from personal portable gadgets will be able to be sent straight to insurance companies, and data from joined home and car appliances will be possible through:

  • - Google,
  • - Apple,
  • - Amazon.

4. Progress in cognitive technology

Cognitive technologies based on the human mind's capacity to study through situation analysis and subsequent reasoning will be responsible for data processing. With the expanded commercialization of these technologies (today used mainly for view recognition, voice, and text processing), insurers will have approach to business standards that are updated in true-time, adjusting to the environment around them.
