[Webinar OpenFloor] Advanced modelling for insurance pricing

On behalf of Mikołaj Skraburski, the Board of the Polish Actuarial Association has the pleasure to invite its members and members of the CEE actuarial associations to its complimentary „Open Floor” series webinar, „Advanced modelling for insurance pricing.”

About the seminar: 

Machine Learning is quickly becoming a standard in the insurance industry rather than a feared black-box. This webinar will focus on comparing past and future modeling approaches by contrasting Generalized Linear Models with a Gradient Boosting Method and will include the following:

  • a theoretical introduction to both GLM & GBM methods enriched by a live demo on the Quantee platform
  • a practical comparison of the two modelling approaches including advantages and drawbacks of each method
