    What the IoT Means to You and Your Insurer

    in Technology

    Whether it is collecting data across a giant enterprise or from your home, the Internet of Things, as part of a big data strategy, has real potential to change how companies and home owners do business with insurance companies.
    Those devices that manage heating systems, security tools, smoke alarms, and other electronics spread throughout a company or a home are generating data that can help an insurance company better evaluate you as a good risk or a poor one. Of course, that  can translate into lower premiums for those of us on the good side of the coin, while those with higher risks could end up paying more.
    Gwenn Bézard is co-founder and research director at Aite Group, where he leads the insurance practice. He joins All Analytics Radio to discuss what the IoT and the smart home mean to the insurance sector and its customers on Friday, May 6, at noon (EDT).
    In this event you will learn:



    About the state of the art in utilizing device data, such as what informatics in our cars already can tell insurance companies and the police about our driving
    How IoT data can reduce costs, and perhaps premiums, for insurance companies
    How insurers have to balance customer privacy concerns with their data gathering
    How the insurer-customer relationship will change in the coming years

    HWPL/IWPG Peace Ceremony Launches Global Cessation of War Drive

    in Women

    When people have disagreements, but have agreed prior to the disagreement that physical violence is not an option, they choose to talk and reason with each other. (Such as a husband and wife in an argument.) In other cases, however, some people may approach disagreements with the attitude "I know how to settle this, I'll just go and get my gun and shoot you!" This can be seen on the street level with gangs and on the international level with governments. It's the same attitude, and it leads to shooting and death as a way to solve disagreements. It has to stop. The Heavenly World Peace Culture of Light (HWPL) and the International Women's Peace Group (IWPG) have launched a global drive for peace by getting heads of governments to sign peace agreements stating that they are willing to make war illegal, and therefore not an option to solving disagreements. HWPL/IWPG has had tremendous success with national leadership. Many heads of nations have signed the agreement. Can this same strategy be used to stop violence between "street nations" aka "gangs"? In a special Peace Ceremony to be held May 20 at the AMC Center on  4421 S, State at 3:30pm, followed by a Peace Walk through the community at 5:00pm, residents will join elected officials, community leaders and activists in urging a written commitment to ending the violence.
