The Limited Attendance Seminar on Predictive Modeling focuses on the practical issues involved in creating predictive algorithmic solutions. Attendees will benefit from training in the following areas:

* Data scrubbing and manipulation
* Methods of creating predictive algorithmic solutions
* Interpreting results from predictive algorithmic solutions

The approach is to demonstrate a systematic methodology for developing an algorithmic solution to the property and casualty insurance business problem.

The curriculum will focus on the critical issues and highlights the common barriers and pitfalls of developing such a solution, rather than focusing on an academic investigation of the underlying statistical theories.

The seminar will present two business applications of algorithmic solutions:

1. Factor optimization for an existing personal lines auto class plan using Generalized Linear Models on pure premium
2. Development of an underwriting scoring algorithmic solution for workers' compensation renewal business using multiple regression on loss ratio.

Attendance is limited to a maximum of 40 students. Attendees will be selected on a first registered, first accepted basis. Participants are expected to bring their own laptop to the seminar.

August 15, 2006 8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
August 16, 2006 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
