As you know, the new IA|BE Actuarial Data Scientist program was recently launched.
In order to guarantee optimal training conditions and interactivity of the programming sessions, the number of participants was limited.
Since the maximum number of participants was reached, the registrations were closed.
Due to the great success, it was decided to start with the 2nd edition in February 2022, provided that there is sufficient interest, i.e. as there are again at least 20 interested persons.
If you are interested in participating in the 2nd edition, you can already register on a reserve list as of now.
The program will be exactly the same as that of the first edition and will therefore again consist of 3 modules.
The objective of the training is to provide to the participants a deep understanding of key Data Science methods, their domain of applicability, key results of interest for practitioners and connections with the classical actuarial methods.
Moreover, the program emphasizes on applied programming practice and demystifies concepts such as model deployment in a corporate environment, MLOps, Object-Oriented programming, code management tools (e.g. Github), and principles of software engineering. For this purpose, Python has been chosen as programming language.
The program consists of 3 modules, each of which is followed by an assignment.
Each module consists of 4 theory sessions and 4 programming sessions.
The theory sessions will again be given by the professors of the KU Leuven, UC Louvain and Université Libre de Bruxelles.
For the programming sessions, we will again collaborate with Reacfin and a team of KU Leuven affiliated researchers in (insurance) data science, coordinated by prof. K. Antonio.
Participants who successfully complete the 3 modules will receive the Certificate of IA|BE Actuarial Data Scientist.
Each of these modules can be taken separately.
The exact schedule of the various sessions will be communicated later.
So if you are interested in participating in the 2nd edition of the program ‘Actuarial Data Scientist’, please do not hesitate to register on the reserve list.
In case of any question, please do not hesitate to contact us.
