Like Thanos, most experts believe that embedded insurance is ‘inevitable’. The interesting questions are when and how we get there. In automobile insurance, we already see the likes of Tesla moving aggressively into the game, with Elon recently claiming insurance might one day represent “30% to 40% of Tesla’s automobile business.”

Maybe you deposited the payments and thought “Fantastic, I’ve been paying insurance forever and finally I get a rebate because I’m a good risk.” Did it take a pandemic to bring this to your attention?
Recently BlueZoo processed our 48 billionth mobile device probe. The data collected from thousands and thousands of sensors located inside and outside of buildings has become a critical differentiating factor driving our measurement accuracy. Using this incredible corpus of data we have developed a half-dozen computational methods to hone our results.
Google showcased BlueZoo’s new optical sensors as an example of how to leverage Coral Edge TPUs, cloud computing, and breakthroughs in machine learning to monitor the occupancy and improve the safety of buildings.vIn the demo CMOS optical sensors are used as smart threshold counters – differentiating between employees and customers.
