What you may have missed, like me in 2017!
If like me, you follow between 50 and 70 sources of information (rss feed) on a daily basis, not counting the linkedin and Twitter publications, it sometimes happens to lose your mind and miss some interesting information.
More specifically, it often happens to see an article that we think would be interesting and keep it for later. But this later comes only rarely and we end up with a small stack of articles to read!
For me, this blog has solved the question about the publication of reports, which remained on my desk waiting for something. For the articles, it is not quite that still, and I find myself at the end of 2017, with a good fifty articles under the elbow. Here are some of them, which you may have missed too!
The Tribune – Assurtech: a disrupted industry, for the benefit of the customer?
Daniel Haguet, professor of finance at EDHEC, who was few (hum) years ago my teacher, gives his opinion on the phenomenon:
- 75% of insurers consider that their industry could be disrupted
- Big data, by aggregating data, even out of the insurance, allows a customization of offers
- Distribution is growing online thanks to the rise of the internet
- For many players, the challenge is to take a stake in these structures, to take advantage of both technological advances and the “captive” portfolios of clients.

Structuring technologies and forces
Seen on Twitter, but unfortunately without noting the source, I share it, because although incomplete without a caption, it seems to me wider in its acceptance of technologies than many current reports and panoramas, including mine !
Here’s another one, which gives a little overview of the issues ahead.
Medium – Insurance as a smart contract
Aigang Network summarizes what insurance contracts will be tomorrow, thanks to smart contracts. Better yet, rather than a long speech, they made a demo, wrote the code around an Ethereum blockchain ( accessible on github ) and an app to test it, as well as a video, here:

Intercom Blog – Machine learning is easier than it looks
Once is not customary, a somewhat technical article, but that gives a specific example of what can be done with machine learning in 40 lines of code. Frankly, it’s a gift!

The digital journal – connected objects of health, french social security does not perceive the added value
The title is deliberately provocative and surely a little removed from reality, when we know the current reflections! However, Laure Beyala, a biomedical engineer in Bichat, who has published a book on connected health objects, offers an interesting vision of the issue. She returns in particular on key concepts: Role of the social security, the insurers, DMP, brakes with the development, etc.

P & C360 – Telematics in auto claims is inevitable
This article is totally in sync with my opinion on embedded telematics (see my predictions for 2018 or even my note of conjuncture on this subject ). It goes back to what can be done with it, and why the use of this technology for disasters is inevitable!

Insurance Thought Leadership – Why is Customer Experience Key?
This article is about a concept that I consider essential! Data, processes, technologies must be oriented around the customer and his needs. This is all the more true as connected objects and their billions of data become more and more accessible in the years to come.
