The head of a Bermudian software engineering firm and a New York insurance lawyer will speak at a seminar on artificial intelligence and the insurance industry next week.

Sandra De Silva, the founder, chief executive officer and chief software architect at Nova Ltd, a firm that has provided bespoke software development to the reinsurance industry since 2006, will talk on how AI and machine learning are impacting the insurance industry.

Her fellow speaker will be Mina Matin, a partner at Norton Rose Fulbright in New York, who has extensive experience representing international insurers, reinsurers and captive insurance companies in litigation and arbitrations, in particular in the US, Bermuda and UK.

The event, entitled “Artificial Intelligence and Insurance: A Glimpse of the Future”, is hosted by the Institute of Risk Management Bermuda Group and will take place at O’Hara House, the offices of XL Catlin at 1 Bermudiana Road, Hamilton next Wednesday from 4pm to 6pm.

The venue has been changed from the original plan to hold the event at Deloitte’s offices.

The IRM Bermuda Group stated: “This discussion will help those who are attending develop a better understanding on: what is AI; current uses of AI within insurance, and; what are the current issues within insurance coverages that may be impacted through the use of AI.”

The presentation is based on a similar presentation that was made at the Insurance Coverage Litigation Seminar hosted by the American Bar Association in Tucson, Arizona this month.
