Artificial Intelligence & Big Data in Insurance – Theory and Practice
The rapidly progressing digitalisation leads to enormous amounts of data, which can be used to enhance the core processes of the insurance industry. An important precondition to derive the right decisions from the data is to increase the knowledge on statistical methods in general and artificial intelligence in special.
Organised by the EAA - European Actuarial Academy GmbH.
Participants should have basic previous knowledge in stochastics and probability theory. No specific statistical knowledge is required.
During this seminar, you will need a laptop where R and RStudio are already installed.
