      Keynote: Artificial Intelligence: Threats and Opportunities for the Utility Industry

      The explosion of data combined with very powerful computing is driving a resurgence of artificial intelligence (AI).  While AI is now achieving significant commercial success, there is also considerable fear by the public, as well as many technologists, that AI poses a threat to society – a successful AI-enabled cyber-attack to the energy network could have catastrophic consequences. This talk will explore some of the threats and opportunities that AI offers the utility industry.

      Keynote: Analytics, IoT, and Big Data in the Insurance Industry: Changing Landscape

      The insurance industry’s data ecosystem is growing. Relevant data comes in structured and unstructured forms from a variety of internal and external sources. The age of big data and the internet-of-things (IoT) is here. By tapping into and mining this data, insurance companies can enhance auto pricing, improve claims fraud detection, and refine property exposure risk assessments. Integrating disparate data and data analytics will yield better informed decisions across the insurance value chain. While that may sound great, it is not always easy to get to the data – or to deploy something new. The insurance industry has a tangled web of legacy systems and new platforms. Technology platforms and skillsets often vary from group to group. This session will explore the above as well as how insurers envision using data analytics to enhance the underwriting and claims processes.
