The Harvard Business Review called data scientist "The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century" (October 2012). The good news is that you can be both an actuary and an expert on big data-a match that can ensure (or perhaps, insure?) your continued market value in a world increasingly dependent upon predictive analytics.

It’s never too early to arm yourselves with critical predictive analytics knowledge or enhance your expertise in this field. Last year, for the first annual SOA Predictive Analytics Symposium, we received highly enthusiastic feedback from attendees. This year, we are making it even bigger and better! It features multiple tracks for all levels of those interested in data analytics.

  • Beginner/Implementer Tracks (B/I): A hands-on, productive approach into a classification and regression tree or a random forest.
  • Manager/Supervisor Tracks (M/S): A non-technical look at how big data can help your company, within your specific area of practice.
  • Advanced Practitioner Tracks (AP): A look at cutting-edge techniques, such as deep learning with tensor flow and advanced distribution choices.

Alternatively, a person strong in one aspect, while also interested in the breadth and depth of predictive analytics, can choose to mix and match sessions throughout the symposium.

Whether you’re interested in predictive models, as a manager, implementer or practicing expert this conference will provide you with information to jump to the next level. If you attended previously, we plan to have updated versions of the most popular sessions held last year. The program will also be supplemented with two entirely new concurrent tracks of leading-edge sessions for you.

Who Should Attend

Anyone interested in the field of predictive analytics and/or how it relates to the actuarial profession. A mix of sessions are designed for everyone from the seasoned expert interested in leading techniques to someone just beginning to learn what predictive analytics has to offer.

Ask any of the 250+ attendees last September - this is an event you won’t want to miss!
