FREMONT, CA: Technology has become the dominant force across all businesses in the last few years. Disruptive technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning, and natural language processing are improving rapidly and quickly, evolving from theoretical to practical applications. These technologies have also made an impact on insurance agents and brokers. Many people continue to view technology as their foe. They either believe that machines will eventually replace them, or that a machine can never do their job better than them. While this may not be true, some aspects of it are relatable. For instance, a machine will never be able to provide real-time advice as a live agent does. However, low cost and easy to use platforms are currently available that allow agents and brokers to take advantage of this technology to enhance their delivery of advice and expertise to prospects and clients.
