Event description:

1st talk/Global Flood Event Monitoring (Lukas Csoka – Data Scientist, Swiss Re)

One of the common perils that causes huge damage loses is flood. It is important to known for insurance companies, which areas are affected by floods. Traditional flood models yield only a limited amount of information at the time of the event. Identifying affected areas after a flood is currently an almost completely manual process. Combining traditional flood models, social media and a number of other information sources, we want to create a detailed and accurate picture of the damage as it happens.

2nd talk/Machine learning in customer behavioral analytics (Martin Kupec – Data Scientist, Swiss Re)

Having a portfolio of customers paying for service on regular basis is very frequent case, not just in insurance, but also in telecommunications, entertainment and many other retail industries. The speaker will have a talk about how to get insights for such a portfolio, about lapses or migrations towards different services within portfolio. Dynamic pricing for targeted customer segments is valuable, but is hard to get using traditional approach. However, in the presented use case, we tried non-traditional approach with machine learning classification models leading us to very interesting and reasonable results.

Event is sponsored by Swiss Re (budget for drinks and refreshment).
