Rethinking insurance: How cognitive computing enhances engagement and efficiency

Oxford Economics worked with IBM’s Institute for Business Value in  mid-2016 to field a survey among 1,502 C-suite executives in a range of roles around the world. As the cognitive era dawns, outperformers in the industry are rethinking insurance by applying technologies that understand, reason, learn and interact to improve the way insurers do business.

They need to be able to scrutinize internal and external data sets, many of which have not been digitally accessible.
