The actuarial focus has changed significantly over the last couple of years. Computational power is increasing with exponential growth, in addition more and more data is available. This combination puts the actuarial profession into a position where a new understanding has to be developed on today‘s possibilities of actuarial science and its ethical implications. The new role of actuaries within big data and ongoing digitalisation is not yet fully defined. Best practice experience sharing and exchange of ideas is needed. The EAA is delighted to offer all interested actuaries and other experts a forum for knowledge exchange:
Organised by the EAA – European Actuarial Academy GmbH.
The Data Science & Data Ethics e-Conference is open to all actuaries and other interested experts.
Please check with your IT department if your firewall and computer settings support web session participation (the programme Zoom will be used for this online event). Please also make sure that you are joining the e-Conference with a stable internet connection.
