Having achieved its objectives, the IFoAs Modelling, Analytics and Insights from Data (MAID) Working Party is disbanding and a new Data Science Member Interest Group (MIG) will be formed.
The Working Party was established to identify the opportunities and risks presented to the actuarial profession by the evolution of data science, and has led the way in developing actuarial application of data science. The role of the new MIG will be to promote debate, research and member awareness, and to assist the IFoA in achieving our objective of having members of the actuarial profession combine their business skills with a deep understanding of data science.
As a cross-practice group, we are seeking to appoint volunteers across all seven practice areas to participate in the new Data Science MIG. Look out for volunteer vacancies for the new Data Science MIG on the IFoA website in the autumn.
