Applying AI – From Concept to Practice

Tuesday 19 July 2022 10:00 - 11:00

Spaces available

Artificial Intelligence is heralded as a game-changer to the ways industries use data, with the insurance industry especially looking to embrace these new technologies. This brings many questions – not least around data privacy, ethics, potential biases and so on – with regulators increasingly interested in developments.

Moreover, whilst the stunning progress of specific technologies such as Watson and Alphazero made headlines some years ago, current commercial applications of AI remain far from mature.

Our two speakers from leading reinsurer Munich Re will share their experiences on both these areas. Frank Schiller will cover the conceptual framework needed for good governance, and Abhijit Pal will talk through some of the practical challenges of implementing AI to solve business problems.

For actuaries and data scientists this webinar will cover key current considerations in this important and exciting field.
