The IFoA are pleased to announce the launch of their first virtual event on Data Science.

The event will offer delegates the opportunity to view live webinars from speakers with a wealth of knowledge in data science, alongside videos to showcase what actuaries are working on within the data science world.  There will be case studies and presentations to view and the chance to find out more about this relevant subject matter.  With a new webinar each day, delegates will have the opportunity to attend the sessions they wish and source the material relevant to their level of knowledge. 

The event will be open to all members; non-members; students and those with an interest in learning the basics of data science, or expanding their knowledge with more technical material.

  1. Data science in the workplace
  2. Getting started in data science
  3. Application of data science techniques
