CAS International Webinar – Big Data in Insurance
26 Feb 2019
PLEASE NOTE: This webinar is free for CAS Members and iCAS Members and will take place at Noon in Hong Kong on February 26. The Multiple Registration Fee is not available for this event.
A simple Google search for 'big data definition' returns over 70M hits in less than one second, and only one definition appears more than once among the first dozen hits. Is the fact that this volume and variety can be accessed with such velocity a testament to the democratization of data, or is the lack of clear veracity for any one definition a sign of revolution to come? Will insurance uses of big data be decided by insurance professionals like actuaries or regulators, or will consumers be the ultimate decision makers of how their data is used in insurance and beyond? In this session we use case studies to examine issues and stories surrounding big data in insurance, with a focus on regulation and governance issues.
This international webinar will be of interest to CAS members outside of North America, and of particular interest to actuaries working with Data Management, Predictive Modeling, Programming/Software Development, Regulation, and Underwriting/Marketing.
