The Pitfalls of Artificial Intelligence

As if driving motor vehicles weren’t risky enough, the second fatality involving an autonomous vehicle has scientists going back to the drawing board to see where artificial intelligence failed.

The first reported fatality involving a driverless car killed a driver in Florida in 2015. This most recent fatality, which occurred in Arizona last month, involved a pedestrian and halted Uber’s use of autonomous vehicle testing on public roads in several cities.

For information about insurance legislation involving autonomous vehicles, visit the website of the National Conference of Insurance Legislatures. I wrote and teach a 3-hour insurance CE webinar for A.D. Banker and Company, Driving into the Future: Uber, Drones, and Driverless Cars if you’re interested in more information about how this technology affects the insurance industry.

Ridesharing

Q: Do you know how hiring a ride with a Transportation Network Company (TNC) like Uber or Lyft works?

Q: Do you know if the TNC has auto insurance, requires its drivers to have insurance, and/or conducts background checks before hiring drivers?

Q: If you want to drive for a TNC, do you know if you must pass a background check, if your car must pass an inspection, if you must have certain types and limits of insurance?

Q: When does a ride really begin and end? How much does one cost and how high can the prices go?

Q: What’s all the hooplah about?


We’ll answer these and other questions during our live webinar, Ridesharing, which will be presented on May 16 at 11 a.m. Mountain/1 p.m. Eastern time. Insurance producers and adjusters in Montana will earn 1 hour of continuing education (CE) credit for completing the webinar and click here to register.

Our June Newsletter is Now Available

Here’s a link to our June Newsletter, which contains the latest news about our insurance continuing education course curriculum: http://us2.campaign-archive1.com/?u=153f99e08d4b5ee668e796186&id=110531a4bd

We will be visiting Missoula in September, where Linda will present 24 hours of classroom CE at the Staybridge Suites on the north side of town. For more information about these events, including pricing and discounts, click here.

Our hottest webinar at the moment seems to be the 1-hour Renting Cars, which explains the issues that arise when an individual or business rents a car and then expects the personal or business auto policy to extend coverage. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always go as smoothly as expected because a number of conflicts exist between the car rental agreement and the insurance contract.

March Newsletter and Insurance CE Schedule

Our March newsletter was published online today, along with our upcoming insurance CE schedule. For those of you who are unaware, in addition to offering our insurance CE webinars in Montana we now offer them in the state of Oregon. We are also presenting our CE webinar courses in-house so, if you’d like your agency/company staff to attend the same webinar–either one we are already offering or one we design especially for you, contact Linda directly for more information.

This webinar will be offered in 2015 on October 20 and December 19. 2016 dates will be announced sometime in October. This seminar meets the requirements of the legislative changes course.

Ethical Dilemmas is approved for 3 hours of CE and helps students achieve a better understanding of the ethical dilemmas they routinely face concerning service issues, privacy and confidentiality, and understanding issues related to the insurance application. This webinar will be offered in 2015 on October 14 and December 15. 2016 dates will be announced sometime in October.

Insuring Mother Nature is approved for 3 hours of CE. Mother Nature tends to surprise us with a variety of weather events.
