NAIC Silicon Valley Program
October 9-10, 2018

Registration is FREE and now open!

Please join the NAIC for our Silicon Valley Program on Oct. 9-10, 2018. This program will bring together regulators, policymakers, experts, innovators and academics to discuss two key issues in the world of insurance: autonomous vehicles and cybersecurity.

Participants will hear from a number of informative and dynamic speakers, and have the opportunity to dialogue and network with these thought leaders and other attendees in a collaborative setting. The Silicon Valley Program is complimentary, and participants can choose to attend one or both days.

  • On Tuesday, Oct. 9, the NAIC Center for Insurance Policy and Research (CIPR) will host an Autonomous Vehicle Insurance Forum that will examine the road to mobility and the path ahead for autonomous vehicles, with an emphasis on the new ecosystem of auto insurance. The transition from human-assisted driving to fully autonomous vehicles will have a profound impact on the current auto insurance business model. However long the transition takes, we need to begin thinking about how autonomous vehicles can transform the landscape well before the majority of vehicles on our roads are self-driving. The one-day forum will take place at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. (

Carla Bailo, president and CEO of Center for Automotive Research will present the first keynote address.

James M. Anderson, Director, Justice Policy; Director, RAND Institute for Civil Justice; Senior Behavioral Scientist; Faculty, Pardee RAND Graduate School, will present the afternoon keynote.


  • To better understand the current state of cyber threats and ever-evolving nature of cyber coverage, join us Wednesday, Oct. 10, for our second NAIC and Stanford University Joint Cybersecurity Forum. Cybersecurity remains a critical issue. As the cyber risk landscape continuously changes, modern cyber defenses-as well as insurance coverage-must evolve. The forum will examine the current cyber risk landscape and cyber threat intelligence, data and information-sharing. This one-day forum will take place on the Stanford University campus: Hauck Auditorium, Traitel Building.

Michael Daniel, former special assistant to the president and cybersecurity coordinator at the White House, will kick off the Cybersecurity forum with a keynote address.

Richard A. Clarke, founder and CEO of Good Harbor Cyber Security Risk Management-and former U.S. national coordinator for security, infrastructure protection and counter-terrorism-will host a special session on developing a Cybersecurity Insurance Institute.


We hope to see you in California!

You're Invited! CIPR Webinar: The Rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Insurance Wednesday, September 26, 2018 1:00 p.m. - 2:15 p.m.

Please plan to join the NAIC Center for Insurance Policy and Research (CIPR) for its upcoming webinar, The Rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Insurance. Jon Godfread, North Dakota Insurance Commissioner and Vice-Chair of the NAIC Innovation and Technology (EX) Task Force, will provide opening remarks and participate in the roundtable discussion. The webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, September 26 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. CT.

AI is a buzzword in the insurance sector. The integration of AI applications over the next decade is expected to bring a paradigm shift to the insurance business model. But what exactly is AI and how is it used in the insurance world? AI can refer to a number of different applications, from machine learning to Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to image recognition.

This webinar will provide an understanding of AI basics and an overview of AI applications. It will also discuss how AI is already being applied in the insurance industry and the benefits and challenges in its adoption. Following the presentations will be a roundtable discussion on how AI is likely to shape the insurance industry in the future and the associated risks and opportunities.

Topics Covered:

  • Understanding the AI spectrum of technologies (machine learning, chat bots, etc.)
  • Use of AI applications in underwriting, claims and customer interactions
  • Integrating AI into internal processes for risk and fraud detection
  • Achieving transparency in AI-driven decisions
  • Addressing cultural hurdles and talent needs
  • Impact of emerging AI applications on the future (facial recognition, deep learning, speech and text analytics, etc.)
