SCOR Foundation – Scope and limits of Artificial intelligence

On May 15, 2024, the SCOR Foundation for Science hosted a webinar titled “Scope and limits of Artificial intelligence”, delivered by Arthur Charpentier. A professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Quebec in Montreal and a member of the Institute of Actuaries, Arthur Charpentier is an internationally recognized expert in actuarial science and the author of numerous academic articles published in the best actuarial academic journals worldwide.

During the webinar, Arthur Charpentier discussed the research project “Fairness of predictive models: an application to insurance markets”, which is supported by the SCOR Foundation for Science. This project addresses biases within the automatic artificial intelligence algorithms utilized to determine optimal pricing in individual policies. Its aim is to mitigate or eliminate such biases, which could lead to inequities or discriminatory practices based on factors such as gender, race, religion, or origin in the coverage provided by insurers or reinsurers to policyholders.
