Bringing AI to Aioi Nissay Dowa Europe

The insurance market is rapidly evolving. Providers are integrating Artificial Intelligence (AI) to take advantage of the explosion of data emerging from connected devices, smart cities, and the changing relationships between humans and technology.

Keeping up with the advancements in AI is essential. It doesn’t just affect the bottom line, it affects the lives of millions.

Mind Foundry and Aioi Nissay Dowa Europe (AND-E) have been working together to drive digital transformation throughout a number of their business lines and departments. 





Throughout this report we will look at:

  • The four myths around AI adoption: There are some important considerations when it comes to creating value from AI in
    insurance, as well as misconceptions in the prevailing wisdom about AI adoption. In particular, there are four myths that we want to dispel.

  • AI in action at AND-E: The insurance industry has a long history of using data to identify, assess, and manage risks, and has always appreciated the value of data and analytics. AND-E have been investing in AI and Machine Learning for many years, and in collaboration with Mind Foundry, responsible use of AI can improve revenue and operational efficiency, and most importantly, provide better products and services to our customers.

  • The future of AI in insurance: We can’t talk about AI as a future technology. AI adoption is already growing rapidly in the insurance industry, and it will eventually be universally adopted as a technology.

  • Going from Artificial Intelligence to Organisational Intelligence: No discussion of the future would be complete without mentioning something that we’re supposed to be afraid of. I’m sure that you’ve all heard about the idea of superintelligence - an AI so powerful that it can improve itself until it ultimately becomes self-aware. Fortunately, it’s safe to say that this is a very unlikely outcome...
