AI 101 for Insurance Professionals    

June 6, 2024

Artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer just a buzzword, it’s a transformative force that’s reshaping industries, including Medicare. Did you know that AI can boost marketing efficiency substantially? For Medicare insurance agents, understanding AI is crucial to staying competitive and delivering top-notch service.

Understanding AI: Key AI Terms for Beginners

Here are some key terms that you will run across when learning about AI:

  1. Artificial Intelligence (AI): AI refers to the simulation of human intelligence in machines that are designed to think, learn, and solve problems like humans.
  2. Machine Learning (ML): A subset of AI where algorithms learn from data and improve their performance over time without being explicitly programmed.
  3. Deep Learning: A subset of machine learning that uses neural networks with many layers (hence “deep”) to analyze various levels of data abstractions.
  4. Neural Network: A series of algorithms that attempt to recognize underlying relationships in a set of data through a process that mimics the way the human brain operates.
  5. Model: In machine learning, a model is a mathematical representation of a real-world process. Models are trained on data to make predictions or decisions without human intervention.

Common AI Tools

In the context of Medicare insurance, AI is particularly relevant because it can handle vast amounts of data and automate complex tasks, making business operations and marketing efforts more efficient and precise. Here are some common AI tools that can be used in your business:

  1. ChatGPT: ChatGPT is now on 4.0 and is free to use to a certain degree. You can use ChatGPT to do many things like help write blogs, ideas for content creation, and even to summarize documents.
  2. MidJourney: MidJourney is a prompt-based AI that can generate images based on what you tell the AI you want. This can help with photos for your website or marketing pieces and even logos.
  3. Microsoft Copilot: Microsoft 365 Copilot integrates AI capabilities into office applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Teams.
  4. Adobe Firefly: Adobe Firefly is similar to MidJourney but is integrated into the Adobe suite of products. You can use this AI to generate designs from scratch and even use it to extend out photos or get rid of backgrounds.
  5. Grammarly: Grammarly is a digital AI writing assistant. Grammarly helps with grammar and spell check, punctuation and style suggestions, conciseness and clarity, tone detection, plagiarism detection, and vocabulary enhancement.
