Convergence of technologies, demographic & sociological factors has created a new era of mobility. Electric vehicles, shared mobility, autonomous vehicles, smart cities & others are primary contributors to creating better access to mobility, greater asset utilization, infrastructure efficiency & more fundamentally, improved safety. As we get into an environment of mixed vehicle fleet, even before the industry reaches full autonomy, many tools can be leveraged to assist in safe driving - how does this impact the insurance industry? How does risk shift over time, with shifts in car ownership to sharing, from consumer to commercial lines of insurance & into new insurance products to enable autonomy & new forms of mobility? How is liability assigned in an autonomous world - between the vehicle owner, auto manufacturer, AI software company, telecommunications company, parts maker, government or others in the ecosystem? Join us for a panel discussion to share perspectives on how these shifts will play out, implications for the insurance industry & how all parties in the ecosystem can collaborate in the future world of mobility.
