Machine Learning for Actuaries is a course for Actuaries and Actuarial Students who want to extend their technical expertise into the field of Machine Learning. The material teaches students foundational Machine Learning algorithms that learners can build from and apply when they go back to their workplace
You will learn foundational Regression and Classification techniques and be able to answer questions like: 'Is fertility related to socio-demographic data, environmental factors, health status and life habits?' and 'Is it possible to classify a tumor automatically based on various medical factors?'
You will learn foundational Clustering and Dimensionality Reduction techniques and be able to answer questions like: 'Is it possible to recognise ADLs using binary sensor data? ' and 'Is it possible to reduce the computation and space complexity of each face image down to a small number of parameters?
We will end with a tour of Deep Learning and how it can and will be applied for Actuaries going forward
You will have on-site experts to help you get up to speed with Machine Learning techniques
We will teach you real world skills that you can apply immediately to solve problems
Over the 3 days there will be regular feedback from our facilitators to make sure you are on the right track
