The Insurance Data Science Conference returns in 2021 for an on-line global event. The conference will run over three half-days (afternoons in Europe & Africa / mornings in the Americas). The conference brings together academics and practitioners in areas including data science, analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, computational statistics and software, as applied in the insurance industry. For more information, see https://insurancedatascience.org/
Mardi 29 septembre, le matin (heure canadienne), je donnerai un exposé au groupe de travail modcov19, du CNRS, en France, pour présenter notre article COVID-19 pandemic control: balancing detection policy and lockdown intervention under ICU sustainability
In July, I gave a lecture at the summer school on machine learning for economists and applied social scientists. It was an (online) lecture on machine learning for insurance

My slides are now online,
Just a brief post to mention that was invited as a keynote speaker to give a talk at the Summer School on Machine Learning for Economists, in one month,
I will give a talk on machine learning and insurance. More to come, soon…
By the end of July, a group of colleagues from Dalhousie and Saint Mary’s Universities in Halifax will host a series of online lectures on machine learning for economists and applied social scientists. I will be giving a talk on machine learning and insurance.
The conference, that we were organizing in July, in Montréal, is officially cancelled.
Next July, we will organize IME 2020 at UQAM, in Montréal… The website is now online, http://ime2020.uqam.ca/, and registrations will be opened soon… We will organize some short course, after the three-day congress, on two days… More to come soon….
This week-end, the Canadian Econometric Study Group will organise a conference in Montréal, on Machine Learning Econometrics. Since I was in the scientific committee, I’ve read some of the papers that will be presented, and it will be extremely interesting. There will be two invited speakers, Gregory Duncan (Amazon and University of Washington) and Dacheng Xiu (University of Chicago).I will be around at the poster session on Friday, and I should chair a session on Saturday ! See you there !
This week, The Society for the Study of Economic Inequality (ECINEQ) organised the Eighth ECINEQ Meeting 2019 in Paris, hosted by the Paris School of Economics and the World Inequality Lab. Emmanuel Flachaire was there to present our joint work on Pareto Models for Top Incomes. Slides are also available

Mid-May, I will be in Chicago for the Risk Analytics Symposium,
Just a quick post to mention that an Insurtech Summit will be organized in May 2019, on Friday 3rd, by Mike Ludkovski, and I will be there, with Francois Millard (Vitality Group), Adam Tashman (Carpe Data, Santa Barbara), Emil Valdez (University of Connecticut), and Howard Zail (Elucidor, LLC, New York City). That will be nice… I will actually also give a talk on the Monday before at the actuarial seminar !
Tomorrow will start the two-day workshop on “Natural Catastrophe Prevention and Insurance: Market and Policy Issues” at ETH Zürich. My slides are now available online, on “How to Estimate the Occurrence Probability of Natural Catastrophes”
Tomorrow afternoon, I will fly to Switzerland.
I will attend the workshop on “Natural Catastrophe Prevention and Insurance: Market and Policy Issues” at ETH Zürich.
