May I Have Some Neural Networks with My Insurance Data, Please?
Machine learning techniques, particularly Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs), have enjoyed an upsurge in popularity and practical applications in a myriad of disciplines.  The explosion in the variety and volume of available data, coupled with cheap data storage and fast computing power, have placed ANNs front and center in data scientists’ tool boxes. 
Women’s Health and Insurance
When I recently scheduled an OB-GYN appointment, the first available opening was nearly two months out. Many women already wait months to see a physician for routine care. The critical nature of the aging OB-GYN workforce is clear, and this crisis will force some substantial changes for both patients and insurers.
Insuring Reputational Risk

How does an organization protect itself from reputational risk? Purchasing cyber liability coverage, adding safeguards to its IT systems, ensuring its employees behave in a professional manner both inside and outside the company walls and paying close attention to social media platforms come to mind.

Insights on Climate Change Using the Actuaries Climate Index
Zach Brogadir June 06, 2017 Posted in: Blog Posts, General, News
Climate change made headlines this week as a key government decision sparked renewed debates among politicians. It’s a topic that has also sparked serious discussion within the insurance industry and actuaries are being asked to evaluate the potentially serious implications. Our previous blog post examines how climate change could impact the insurance industry and discusses what actuaries are doing to provide unbiased tools to analyze climate data. The Actuaries Climate Index (ACI) measures the changes in climate over time in a single index score. Scores greater than 0 indicate a greater than average frequency of extreme weather such as high temperatures and rising sea levels. The ACI provides a wealth of information from which we can gain key insights into the behavior and impact of climate change that has already been observed.
