Representatives of SWISS Re, VIG and GEN Re, among the speakers at "IIF 2018 - Motor Insurance - The Innovation Challenge"

Representatives of SWISS Re, VIG, GEN Re, and FIRSS are among the insurance professionals that will analyze this topic at "IIF 2018 - Motor Insurance - The Innovation Challenge".

The event focuses on the inherent challenges brought by the technological innovations for the insurance industry, taking into account the fact that using artificial intelligence, telematics (and other smart devices) and the blockchain technology should be accompanied by a cautious strategy, keeping in mind the legal aspect - present or in preparation for the near future.
