[Webinar OpenFloor] Modern Optimization Techniques in Actuarial Modelling- 27 March 2024

On behalf of Piotr Godlewski, 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, „Modern Optimization Techniques in Actuarial Modelling.”

About the lecture: 

Traditional cash flow models were designed to be easily understood by an actuary. In recent years significant advancement in computer hardware has been observed, although actuarial models only benefited from these changes in a limited way. To fully utilise modern hardware, actuaries need to make adjustments in their calculations.

The aim of this seminar is to present how actuarial models can take advantage of new hardware and software features to immensely accelerate calculations. We will present important hardware properties of modern computers and explain how they affect actuarial models. Furthermore, we will discuss differences between coding languages and their effectiveness in actuarial modelling.

About the speaker: 

Piotr Godlewski is Board Member of the Polish Society of Actuaries and an actuary with over 8 years of experience. His main areas of expertise are low-latency coding and optimisation of actuarial software and standalone models, having developed actuarial models in Poland, the UK, Ireland, Germany and Italy.
