The purpose of this seminar, held October 4-5, 2006 at The Westin Copley Place in Boston, Massachusetts, embraces two fundamental concepts. The first goal is to educate attendees about predictive modeling techniques relevant to insurance companies. The second is to further discuss current and future insurance applications of predictive models.
Basic- and intermediate-level sessions will be offered covering such predictive modeling and analytic techniques as:
- Generalized Linear Models (GLMs)
- Classification And Regression Trees (CART)
- Multivariate Adaptive Regression Splines (MARS)
- Neural Networks
- Generalized Additive Models (GAMs)
- Principal Components Analysis
- Model Validation
Complementing these sessions on techniques and analysis will be practical sessions on specific lines of business, applications beyond pricing and underwriting, predictive modeling project management and implementation, and predictive modeling data issues.
This seminar is intended for actuaries and other insurance professionals at all levels who wish to learn about the potential uses of predictive modeling in their work. The seminar will benefit actuarial students, insurance analysts, and insurance company management alike.
