Mobility is one of the core foundations of human civilization — expanding the range of opportunities to vast swathes of our society. Auto insurance protects the rights of individuals to access these opportunities while minimizing the downside in the event of an accident or natural disaster. Considering the importance of this function, this industry is highly regulated and places costly overhead looking for a path to transformation. The best way we can leverage technology is to address problems today and evolve them into a solution for the future. In this community lecture, we will look at the structure of the auto industry and how we can chart a path to transformation.
