MAIN COURSE:
Machine learning and data analytics is an emerging field that is 
beginning to have a strong influence on the field of actuarial science 
practice. The onset of big data applications in insurance has driven the 
profession to explore new ways to understand data and modelling. Unlike 
in Google and Facebook type technology applications where huge data 
bases of labelled data are available, in the insurance context we are 
often considering unsupervised learning methods. This course will 
address core methodology to tackle unsupervised problems of relevance to 
insurance applications.

SPECIAL INVITED LECTURES:
Abstracts will be announced soon.
