WINDSOR, Conn., July 10, 2019 – Jennifer Golbeck, Ph.D., director of the Social Intelligence Lab at the University of Maryland, will deliver a keynote address at the Supplemental Health, DI & LTC Conference in Nashville, Tenn. on August 5-7, 2019.
Golbeck will discuss how artificial intelligence will drive the future. Her presentation, Datashock: Artificial Intelligence, Connectedness, and Readying for the Big Data and Social Future, will explore the power of smart algorithms combined with big social data to track behavior and develop new insights into customers and what they want. Golbeck will explain how new computational techniques are revealing hidden traits of millions of people online and how this will impact the future of insurance.
This year’s conference provides a unique opportunity to consider a cross-functional view of supplemental health products, including accident insurance, critical illness, hospital indemnity, as well as individual disability insurance and long-term care standalone and combination products. With more than 30 breakout sessions on pricing/product design, filing, underwriting, claims and more, as well as separate tracks for each product, attendees can choose to explore one product from end-to-end or consider one function across multiple products.
The conference, jointly hosted by LIMRA, LOMA, and the Society of Actuaries (SOA), provides an opportunity for attendees to network with peers, share ideas and experiences, and learn from experts within the supplemental health, individual disability and long-term care industries.
Additional platform speakers include:
- Gina C. Guzman, MD, vice president and chief medical director, Munich Re US (Life), will discuss implications of the opioid epidemic, as well as changes in medicinal and recreational marijuana use, for the insurance industry.
- Brian Pauley, vice president, actuarial services, Highmark Health; and Joe Wurzburger, health staff fellow, SOA, will discuss the cost of care in the U.S., which is 18% of GDP compared to 11% in similar countries. These actuaries will describe the drivers behind this problem and outline “Initiative 18|11,” the innovative new effort from the SOA and the Kaiser Family Foundation to address the rising cost of health care.
The Supplemental Health, DI, & LTC Conference, which will be held at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville, typically attracts more than 250 professionals in the areas of supplemental health, disability income and long-term care insurance products.
