Big Data, Algorithmic Fairness, and the Consumer
June 1, 2022 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. EDT
The widespread digitization of the economy has created a wealth of data on risk exposures for insurance companies. But how insurers exploit what has become known as Big Data has prompted widespread discussion around data ethics, especially in regard to transparency and fairness where consumer data is used to market and price risk. Big data combined with powerful algorithms has the potential to broaden the availability of insurance to the benefit of society. The same tools can also give rise to pricing practices that society may consider unfair. It is important for insures to be aware of trade-offs that arise from inherently incompatible concepts of fairness.
Speaker: Frank Schmid, Chief Technology Officer
