A Discussion on AI Ethics and Governance
< Back to hub

Insights from TINtech London Market

As a part of the TINtech London Market agenda this year, one of our 'discussion pods' provided an opportunity for participants to explore the ethical dilemmas generative AI presents.

The discussion pod was facilitated by Eddie Longworth, who has initiated and facilitated the creation of a Voluntary Code of Conduct for the use of Artificial Intelligence in Claims that we encourage everyone to sign up to

1. Regulatory Concerns and Industry Responsibility:

While acknowledging existing data protection and privacy regulations, there was a unanimous concern about the lack of specific regulations governing the use of generative AI in the insurance sector.

Participants highlighted the industry's role in self-regulation, emphasizing the need for the London Market and the insurance industry at large to actively contribute to shaping guidelines for the use of generative AI.

2. Transparency and Bias Mitigation:

The discussion emphasized the importance of transparency regarding the use of generative AI in the insurance lifecycle.

Concerns were raised about the potential biases in AI algorithms, underscoring the need for balanced data to prevent issues arising from using outdated or biased datasets.

3. Defining 'Better' Customer Experience:

The debate questioned the definition of a 'better' customer experience and explored the legitimate deployment of generative AI.

There was a reminder that just because it can be done doesn't mean it should be. The importance of clearly explainable customer benefit was highlighted.

4. Balancing Ethical Values and Business Benefits:

Participants stressed the importance of maintaining core ethical values while reaping the business benefits of generative AI.

It was acknowledged that while ethical principles should be upheld, there is a risk of overthinking the use of AI, with a suggestion that generative AI should be treated as a tool rather than an enigma.

5. Blurring Lines between AI Deployment and Human Intervention:

The discussion suggested that the line between legitimate AI deployment and human decision-making cannot, as yet, be clearly defined.

As of now, there is no definitive answer on how to ethically govern the use of generative AI, prompting further exploration into striking the right balance between AI capabilities and human oversight.

Conclusion:

The discussion highlighted the dynamic landscape of generative AI, bringing attention to ethical concerns that need careful handling. Moving forward, ethical frameworks could maximize AI's potential while avoiding unintended issues.

Examining algorithms, implementing governance mechanisms, and employing risk management strategies are essential for fostering the secure and ethical integration of AI. Proactively embracing these measures not only enhances competitiveness but also minimizes the likelihood of adverse consequences, thereby building trust and diminishing liability concerns.

The discussion pod was facilitated by Eddie Longworth, who has initiated and facilitated the creation of a Voluntary Code of Conduct for the use of Artificial Intelligence in Claims that we encourage everyone to sign up to.
