's sixth annual Risk & Innovation in Data and Analytics conference will take place on 15 May 2018 in London.

Renzo Avesani, Chief Risk Officer and Chief Innovation Officer at Unipol, will provide an opening keynote address on the role of data in the modern digital world. In Europe, Unipol has the largest number of insured cars with black boxes installed - more than 3.5 million. As a result, they are very active in telematics - it allows them to better understand the kind of risks they underwrite, and it gives them insights into new product design.

As well as being Unipol's CRO, Renzo is also the chief innovation officer of the company and is actively involved in the analytics of their data and 'big data' from social media. He is also looking at applying machine learning procedures to better price their risks. Renzo will provide you with insights into his vision for the role of data in the digital insurance world and how his visions are becoming a reality at Unipol.
