    Insurance is often thought of as a stodgy, old-fashioned industry, but insurers and the policies they offer have been deeply affected by recent technological change. Insurers are changing their business methods based on algorithmic learning, innovating their business models based on technology that allows something closer to peer-to-peer insurance, and they have expanded their offerings based on new technological threats, including offering insurance against cyberattacks.  These innovations implicate a number of concerns common to the insurance industry, including whether insurers are financially sound, whether they are offering fair policies at reasonable prices, and whether insurers are discriminating against vulnerable or suspect classes of policyholders. Of further concern is whether the extant legal and regulatory structures can adapt to handle these innovations. The presentations will begin to address some of those issues.
