Pricing methodologies in insurance have long been focused on 1 method (cost oriented pricing methodology). But new technologies, automation, and AI are leading the insurance industry to explore new avenues. Current literature is unanimously positive about these evolutions, however, we are going to explore the potential downsides of insurance companies delving into "deep data" to determine pricing. Where do we draw the line between what is an acceptable data point and what information becomes exploitative and gives insurance companies an unfair advantage in price setting for insurance contracts?
