Web Session: "Practical AI Methods in Claim Handling and Reserve Predictions" on 24 January 2023, 10:00-12:00 CET

­

­

In this web session, we will introduce the methods and approaches from machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) that support quantification, causes, and data outputs from for claims’ handling files and its unstructured information. We will focus on the creation of data from the information set that is contained in the unstructured documents through methods from optical character recognition (OCR), natural language processing (NLP), and classification and prediction models. The goal is to create sufficient new data sets that support the analysis, automated auditing, and machine-support claims handling. We will show the ideas, approaches but also practical examples and software tools. The goal is to understand how unstructured information of claims’ files is transformed to machine readable and processable data and what can be done with this new rich data set.
Your early-bird registration fee is € 100.00 plus 19% VAT until 13 December 2022. After this date, the fee will be € 140.00 plus 19% VAT.

Web Session: "50 Shades of Product Development" on 31 January - 2 February 2023, 10:00-15:30 CET

­

­

­

­

­

Product development is multifaceted, and the related activities are quite diverse. Depending on the organization of a life insurance company, these activities may include topics ranging from actuarial to IT, from law to sales, from marketing to customer services, from accounting to investments – and beyond.
In addition, life insurance business is under threat. Different topics and issues put pressure on business in force as well as on new business, and thus finally on product development: low interest rates, new regulations, new requirements from sales channels and retail clients, environmental and social aspects, the advent of the technological movement in insurance («InsurTech»), and many more.
Thus, the complexity of product development in combination with today’s requirements demand for a holistic view on products and their development. It became obvious now that current best practice in developing products is not sufficient anymore.
Insurers need to change their product development fundamentally. It needs to be faster, more innovative, sustainable, more flexible, and pretty much closer to sales and clients.
In this web session, we discuss different aspects of modern product development and put together the puzzle of different activities, aspects, and perspectives.
Your early-bird registration fee is € 650.00 plus 19% VAT until 20 December 2022. After this date, the fee will be € 845.00 plus 19% VAT.

Web Session: "How Can Actuaries Tackle Inflation and its Consequences?" on 8 February 2023, 9:00-15:45 CET

­

­

­

­

­

If one of the following descriptions fits to your situation, the course might be exactly right for you:

  • You are responsible in the second line for (financial) risk management and you want a handle on inflation risk,
  • You have senior management responsibility and you would like to understand your options to mitigate inflation,
  • You are working in general insurance and you would like to understand where your business is vulnerable to inflation,
  • You are responsible for product management in your organisations and you would like to understand the impact of inflation on your product settings,
  • You need to reflect the inflation risk in your ORSA.

What approach do we take?
In order to have a common understanding of inflation we start with the historic background and pick up recent research on hyperinflation. We also look at the consequences of inflation for our customers, especially in the retirement age. In the second part we analyse the various impacts of inflation in workshops and discuss potential mitigating actions.
Your early-bird registration fee is € 250.00 plus 19% VAT until 28 December 2022. After this date, the fee will be € 335.00 plus 19% VAT.

Web Session: "Introduction to Neural Networks with Applications in Mortality Modeling" on 9 February 2023, 8:30-13:00 CET

­

­

­

­

­

Neural networks have been tremendously successful in a variety of domains. Of course, they have also been extensively studied in actuarial research and applied in insurance companies. For example, an application which is highly relevant for life insurance is the modeling and forecasting of mortality rates.
While simple feed-forward neural networks are already very effective for a number of tasks, there are several techniques (such as embedding layers or ensembles) and specialized architectures (such as recurrent or convolutional neural networks) which are necessary to exploit the full potential of these powerful machine learning models.
Interpretability and explainability are often key requirements in actuarial applications. Successful approaches in this direction have been proposed and are, for example, based on combining neural networks with the more traditional generalized linear models in the so-called combined actuarial neural network or LocalGLMnet architectures.
Your early-bird registration fee is € 200.00 plus 19% VAT until 29 December 2022. After this date, the fee will be € 270.00 plus 19% VAT.

Web Session: "Operational Risk for Actuaries" on 23/24 February 2023, 10:00-12:00 CET

­

­

­

­

­

Operational risk is the risk of loss, arising from inadequate or failed internal processes, people and systems or from external events. That is the definition of operational risk for regulatory purposes. Operational risk management is usually part of ERM and actuaries are typically not involved in these processes. That is often because of poor data related to rare events and some lack of methodologies. The goal of this web session is to provide actuaries with tools and ideas how to better involve in operational risk management and how to use existing actuarial toolboxes to improve valuation of operational risk.
Your early-bird registration fee is € 200.00 plus 19% VAT until 12 January 2022. After this date, the fee will be € 270.00 plus 19% VAT.

Web Session: "ML Explainability in Actuarial Data Science: A Practical Primer" on 27/28 February 2023, 9:00-16:30 CET

­

­

­

­

­

These days, nobody disputes the profound impact and yet-untouched potential of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence anymore. Yet, in the actuarial sciences, these breakthrough possibilities are hampered by regulation, the need for numerical confidence and insight into model decision making, the latter being subsumed as a "black box problem". Thus, the quest for explainability is in fact much more pressing than in any other industry.
This upcoming seminar on ML explainability aims to provide insights into the areas of unsupervised learning, supervised learning and artificial neural nets via model-agnostic explainability approaches, while providing opportunities to try out the methods yourself!
Your early-bird registration fee is € 600.00 plus 19% VAT until 16 January 2022. After this date, the fee will be € 780.00 plus 19% VAT.
