Upskilling on Data Handling and Communications at Swiss Re
In the first-ever R/Insurance webinar, the R Consortium invites three team members of Swiss Re to share their use of R and upskilling on data handling and communications. Four years ago Swiss Re set out for its actuarial community two ‘capability building’ objectives, to improve actuarial data handling and communication skills. Swiss Re launched a community-based initiative, the Atelier program, helping each other upskill whilst solving real-world business-as-usual problems. In this session, Swiss Re team members shared their approach to upskilling for data analytics before diving into an example of how to create automated (and stunning) actuarial reports.
