He indicated that the analysis of selfies for the industry of insurance It is a procedure that “is already happening in many Asian countries” and, in Mexico they already exist insurers that are adapting these systems and platforms to the characteristics of the face of the population of Latin America.

“How are we doing? There are already companies in Mexico that are exploring and talking with these people – designers – who make the tools to tropicalize them; because an Asian face is not the same as a maybe face Latin Americanbut that’s it,” said the director of the AMIS.

AI and big data in insurance

“Before, in the life insurance you had to fill out a questionnaire and when you came to a delicate question, they asked you: Do you have diabetes? Then you said: Yes. And when this document arrived to the subscriber or the adjudicator doctor, said: Ah! He has diabetes. No, I think it’s better not to give him the safe”.

“Now with the new technologyyou can now fill out all the data in one tablet or mobile device and you say: ‘well, yes I have diabetes’ and the system asks you: type A or type B?… “Hey, but is it already controlled? What levels of sugar have?, etc.

“And then when you give certain answers to the system there is no longer a rejection immediately, because it already has more information about you and these platforms automatically allow you to calculate a share”, stated Norma Alicia Rosas.
