Web Session: Actuarial Data Science: Innovative Products Utilizing AI and ML Opportunities
Is Data Science a means to an end or just the end in itself? With more and more Machine Learning methods, frameworks and automatized Knowledge Discovery (aka Data Mining), more often than not actuaries can easily get the impression that everyone is using new techniques simply because they happen to be available.Alas, reinventing the wheel to drive the same cars on the same roads is probably not the end of the story.
Organised by the EAA - European Actuarial Academy GmbH.
The web session is addressed to interested persons who would like to get a first overview about the both innovative and disruptive potentials of Data Science in the actuarial practice. We do not require any specific previous knowledge and start from a very basic level.
Technical requirements and test sessionPlease check with your IT department if your firewall and computer settings support web session participation (the programme Logmein is used for the web session). Please also make sure that you are joining the web session with a stable internet connection.
