About the Session

Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly changing the world. Its application to claims handling, particularly in streamlining more routine claims, aiding in liability and damages evaluation and providing new tools for fraud detection, presents new and exciting opportunities and challenges to the insurance industry and claims professionals. This session will discuss the opportunities for use of AI in claims adjusting and the potential pitfalls that could lead to a claim of bad faith, focusing on what insurance companies can do to maintain good faith claims handling practices while embracing the new world of AI.
