BARCELONA (SPAIN) – From 27 February to 2 March 2017, SENTIANCE technology can be seen in action. The PEUGEOT booth offers visitors of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) the opportunity to discover the world's first demonstration of its autonomous and connected vehicle: PEUGEOT INSTINCT CONCEPT, using SENTIANCE technology. PEUGEOT will showcase how they use artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) to enhance the in-car experience. Their new autonomous and connected concept car, PEUGEOT INSTINCT CONCEPT, leverages the contextual capabilities of the Sentiance platform to personalize the end-to-end car experience by tailoring presets and recommendations based on driver profiles and real-time context. For this, PEUGEOT has deployed the IoT Samsung Artik Cloud platform to connect everyday objects and aggregate data from connected watches, smartphones, social networks and the user's living space via home automation.
At Sentiance, we turn sensor data into rich insights about people's behavior and real-time context. These insights enable companies to understand how customers go through their everyday lives, discover and anticipate the moments that matter most, and adapt their engagement to real-world behavior and real-time context. We are a fast-growing, international team (14 nationalities and counting!). We work hard to get our products to ship, but we also know how to have fun. We strongly value cooperation and openness and we focus on the development and wellbeing of our people.
December is the perfect month to predict the key insurtech trends for the year to come and to think of New Year's resolutions: what specific trends to tap into to enhance the digital strategies. We believe these trends should relate to what an insurance carrier would like to accomplish, to what a'winning insurance firm of the future' would look like. We believe that that such winning insurance firms will have four essential elements. Fast changing customer behaviour and new market dynamics make it essential for insurance carriers to increase the contact frequency and provide more added value in these contacts. Fortunately, connectivity, all sorts of connected devices offer an unprecedented entry in customers' daily life. Adding value is about solving the real problem. People don't want a mortgage; they want a nice house to live in. Insurance is usually just part of a solution, but rarely the entire solution to the real problem a customer is facing.
Just 30 years ago, you would have to wait days for a bank to approve your credit. Or spend weeks bogged down by your insurance company's bureaucracy just to get a refund after a minor car accident. Today, these operations take less than a day as documents are submitted and processed online with little or no human interaction. In this article, we'll cover a set of technologies that promise to transform the whole idea of doing business in the finance world. Artificial Intelligence – is it simply a trendy phrase to put on your landing page or an innovation-ready use case?
That's the true promise of the Internet of Things – to have everything we're surrounded by or interact with adapt to us, learn from us, blend into our lives seamlessly and remove all friction between us and our immediate environment. But that's not where the world is at today. Technology is putting a much greater focus on features and functions than it is on people, and some companies are embracing IoT technology just for the sake of it – which is not always enough. This also explains the small number of real deployed AI implementations (SmarterWithGartner). The real transformative IoT solutions of tomorrow will be those that are founded on a deep understanding of the individual and built to fulfill a genuine need, not simply just another gadget connected to the internet.
