The trend towards the digitalisation of many business areas, which is increasing rapidly all over the world, and the accompanying transition to digital, data-based business models are also transforming the actuarial function. New approaches and technologies offer actuaries the opportunity to expand their fields of activity beyond the classic areas in which they traditionally work.
This induced the DAV to establish the working group Actuarial Data Science (ADS), which aims at making recommendations on how to give this topic more visibility within the association. Due to the complexity of the topic the DAV works closely with (scientific) institutions as well as (international) organisations and associations.
Beginning in 2018, the new specialist knowledge "Actuarial Data Science" gives young actuaries the opportunity to prepare for the challenges in a digitalized world. Additionally, the DAV offers a wide range of continuing education.
The ADS Section concerns itself with the exchange of specialist knowledge on all actuarial topics, opinions and research findings in the trending field of Data Science. It particularly focuses on the implementation of new technologies and the changing workflows in the actuarial profession.
The ADS Section meetings take place twice a year during the Annual Meeting of the DAV and DGVFM at the end of April and the Autumn Meeting in November. Participation in the meetings is open to any interested party and not restricted to members of the DAV or the DGVFM.
