The first Insurance Data Science event was held at Cass Business School last week, 16 - 17 July 2018. The conference followed on from five iterations of the R in Insurance events, which have the aim of bringing together practitioners and academics together to discuss and exchange ideas and needs in the sector. Expanding the remit from R in Insurance to Insurance Data Science has also attracted talks on Python and Tensorflow.


When we started the R in Insurance conference in 2013, we had the aim of bringing practitioners of industry and academia together to discuss, exchange ideas and needs from both sides. R was and is a perfect glue between the two groups, a tool which both side embrace and which has fostered the knowledge transfer between the two. However, R is just one example and other languages serve this purpose equally well.
