Ethical Use of AI in Insurance Modeling and Decision-Making
With increased availability of next-generation technology and data mining tools, insurance company use of external consumer data sets and artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML)-enabled analytical models is rapidly expanding and accelerating.

Beyond SEC regulations, some U.S. companies and financial institutions that meet certain size thresholds and do business in the EU may need to comply with the CSRD. With expanded reporting requirements and complexity, it is likely that scrutiny from regulatory agencies will increase in tandem. Consequences of noncompliance could include litigation, regulatory enforcement, and monetary fines.
