CHICAGO – The insurance industry has entered a new reality of the blended, augmented workforce—combining people, robots and artificial intelligence (AI). Margaret Resce Milkint, managing partner of The Jacobson Group, will discuss best practices for effectively managing the emerging cognitive and AI technologies in the insurance industry. She will present these topics at the Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Conference in Miami Beach, Fla.

“Artificial intelligence is impacting all levels and areas throughout insurance,” said Milkint. “Organizations need to embrace and leverage these advancements in order to find success in today’s rapidly changing workplace.”

Milkint will present “The Workforce of the Future: Embracing the Emerging Augmented Reality” on January 29, at 2:00 p.m. The session will explore the current state of AI in the industry, discuss best practices for managing an augmented workforce, and identify strategies for leveraging new technologies to recruit the next generation of talent.
