AI in Insurance: A New Regulatory Focus

28 April 2023

Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly used in different areas of insurance business, including underwriting, sales and claims handling. While it is capable of providing many benefits to insurers and customers, it gives rise to a number of important regulatory concerns, in particular in relation to governance and potential discriminatory practices. Insurance regulators have started to address such concerns through guidelines that may state high-level principles or set out specific obligations in relation to the development and use of AI applications. The seminar will consider this emerging area of regulation based on practical examples and regulatory circulars issued in key jurisdictions.
