Acquiring and retaining digital native millennial customers requires insurers to come up with innovative ways to enhance customer engagement.

This session will highlight effective ways insurance companies can utilize gamification techniques to attract and retain young customers using IBM Mobile Foundation. Millennials are early digital adapters and are exposed to gamification through loyalty programs so by building gamification via an integrated portal and mobile apps, insurance companies can get their attention.

Implementing gamification involves an ideal mix of both intrinsic and extrinsic rewards, such as personal challenges in preventive care and decease management, monitoring and providing feedback on safe driving and benchmarking against peers.

A daunting task for many students is the big step of deciding a university and major. Educational organizations are challenged to keep up with increasing student needs to provide the right information and increased pressure to reduce costs, which then becomes a major challenge for limited internal staff.

Join Prolifics to hear how an AI Advisor can converse with students to help automate operations with the power of Watson Assistant and Discovery APIs. IBM BPM and ODM will help orchestrate and augment decision-making. Watson Knowledge Studio will convert unstructured data, like transcripts, to feed the Advisor data, and use NLP and NLTK to build a semantic tree and a dependency tree, and perform affect analysis and part-of-speech-tagging.
