Significant Impact of AI on the Job


level of automation


Our comments:

AI presents both a challenge and an opportunity for Actuaries, particularly when it comes to routine tasks like pricing and calculating financial provisions. These tasks are increasingly subject to automation, as AI algorithms crunch numbers with a speed and accuracy that streamline these intricate processes.

Actuaries, however, hold a wealth of knowledge that transcends mere calculations, offering a blend of financial acumen and insurance expertise that facilitates the integration of diverse international standards, and ensures adherence to varied regulatory frameworks. In a world that’s progressively globalized, the Actuary’s role as a navigator through this complex regulatory tapestry becomes indispensable, demanding not only the mechanical application of rules but also the strategic utilization and adaptation of AI tools.

As AI continues to reshape the financial landscape, Actuaries can pivot towards a more strategic alignment, supervising automated tasks, analyzing results for discrepancies or insights, and formulating strategies that cater to the unique demands and challenges of an evolving financial and insurance sector
