The GI Board will supervise the strategic outputs of this working party however, it remains a cross practice initiative with regular input from other practice area boards and members.
This Working Party was created to:
- further understanding of the latest in data science, big data, predictive analytics, machine learning and an ever wider range of mathematical techniques based on operational research, probability and statistics
- develop a tool kit for members of the profession dealing with techniques now associated with colloquial terms including but not limited to data science, predictive analytics, machine learning and big data
- consider where such tools and techniques are currently used; what sort of actuarial problems they might be applicable to; their implications for education, exams and continual professional development or the various codes of conduct
- outline ways in which this work can be made continual - and identify emerging areas that offer special opportunity in current or new domains
- undertake any other work and research as relevant and appropriate.
Keep up to date with the most recent developments in the data science realm, including outputs of the MAID Working Party, with the Data Science Digest.
