Use of Big Health and Actuarial Data for Understanding Longevity and Morbidity Risks

Wednesday 27 September 2017 17:30 - 19:45

This event will highlight the work of the commissioned research programme “Use of Big Health and Actuarial Data for Understanding Longevity and Morbidity Risks“ by the IFoA’s Actuarial Research Centre. The aims of the  programme are to develop novel statistical and actuarial methods for

  • Modelling mortality
  • Modelling trends in morbidity and uptake of health interventions
  • Assessing basis risk
  • Evaluating longevity improvement based on Big Health and Actuarial Data

The multidisciplinary team led by Prof Elena Kulinskaya from University of East Anglia includes actuaries, statisticians, health economists, computer scientists and medical researchers, and the presentation will focus on research output to date.

The format of the evening will be a presentation after which we will open up the floor for questions & debate with a panel session, including non actuarial panellists, this will be followed by an opportunity to network over a drink.
