Ronald Richman, Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries will present this seminar.

Deep learning techniques have begun to appear in the actuarial literature, and have produced promising results in several areas of actuarial practice, from pricing and reserving for non-life insurance to forecasting mortality rates and analysing telematics data. Building on a recent introductory paper, this talk aims to review the state of the art in applying deep learning techniques within actuarial science and, in doing so, highlight the potential that these techniques hold for solving actuarial problems.
