The movie Blade Runner (and the novel it is based on, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?) depicts a future world where artificial intelligence is taking over. It is a striking dystopia where robots – the replicants – have more humanity than their human masters.

Reimagining the future of insurance can get a little bleak too. Insurers might be concerned about InsurTech’s rise and its challenge to both the old ways of doing insurance, and even the need for insurers at all.

For the people who lived during those periods, well-known historical terms like the Middle Ages would have been unknown.
