Big Data is providing actuaries with powerful new analytical tools and opportunities to work with data. What are the cross-practice business implications? What are the professionalism concerns it creates? “Big Data and the Role of the Actuary” looks at Big Data and how it is impacting actuarial practice areas.
Our panelists will draw from Big Data and the Role of the Actuary, a monograph released this past summer by the Academy’s Big Data Task Force. They will discuss current and emerging practices, important regulatory and professionalism considerations, and the current state of the InsurTech field.
