Notes from Warsaw R meetup

I had the great pleasure time to attend the Warsaw R meetup last Thursday. The organisers Olga Mierzwa and Przemyslaw Biecek had put together an event with a focus on R in Insurance (btw, there is a conference with the same name), discussing examples of pricing and reserving in general and life insurance. Experience vs. DataI kicked off with some observations of the challenges in insurance pricing. Accidents are thankfully rare events, that’s why we buy insurance.

Quick review: R in Insurance Conference

Yesterday the first R in Insurance conference took place at Cass Business School in London. I think the event went really well, but as a member of the organising committee my view is probably skewed. Still, we had a variety of talks, a full house, a great conference dinner and to top it all, the Tower Bridge opened while we had our drinks at the end of the evening. I will post a more complete review in the future with links to the files of the presentations and R code, once we had a chance to collate all the information.
