Moving from hype to implementation

Overcoming the practical challenges of effectively deploying AI into real-life operations for game changing impact across the business

There is no doubt that AI has the potential to transform London market operations by enhancing underwriting performance, reducing claims expenditure and optimising costs within the industry (e.g. supply chain).

Given the rapid development of analytical AI and now the promise of foundational Large Language Models, companies cannot just 'wait and see' - even 'experimentation' will leave organisations behind.

Those that can develop and deploy operational AI capabilities into production now will steal a march on their competitors. 

Regardless, the reality is that use cases for insurers and brokers that truly operationalise AI are still in their infancy. 

This breakfast briefing will focus on how:

  • AI and generative AI can be effectively deployed in London Market operations
  • Share examples of how these technologies are being used in EC3 & other sectors
  • Overcome the operational challenges to ensure ROI
