Projects on Predictive Analytics

Date: 3/22/2019
Time: 3:30PM-4:30PM
Place: 415 Armstrong Hall

Abstract: The increasing availability of abundant data and the technological development in data science has led the growing needs for actuaries to acquire knowledge in predictive modeling and analytic. As the insurance industries rely more on predictive analytics, SOA has created new predictive Analytics (PA) Exam. I developed the predictive Analytics course in 2018. My presentation talks about the procedure of the projects and demonstrate some example projects on Predictive Analytics from the course.

Dr. Sungwon Ahn is an assistant professor of Actuarial Science in Roosevelt University, Chicago, Illinois. He earned his PhD in mathematics at Purdue University by studying a Random Walk in Random Environment, and continues his research in the discrete stochastic process and probability. Currently, he is an Associate of Society of Actuaries (ASA).

All are welcome.
