President’s Award for input on the topic of data science

I am delighted to have received a President’s Award for input on data science from outgoing Institute and Faculty of Actuaries President Marjorie Ngwenya, FIA at yesterday’s AGM at Staple Inn in London.

The IFoA is a tremendously vibrant organisation and I believe IFoA and other actuaries have an important role to play in helping businesses and organisations make the most from the torrents of data becoming available, whilst also helping protect consumers from unethical use of such data. In particular, I am very pleased that the IFoA is collaborating with the Royal Statistical Society in the vital area of the ethical use of data in data science. (For example a joint event was held earlier this month on the Industrialisation and Professionalisation of Data Science)
