We are excited to announce that through a partnership with Gross Consulting, members of CAS Student Central are being granted exclusive access to predictive modeling software called Cognalysis MultiRate™. This software is described by Gross Consulting as “a powerful predictive modeling tool for actuaries, analysts, and others whose jobs depend on understanding predictive relationships in their data.”
This new complimentary resource is geared towards actuarial students interested in gaining practical hands-on experience by building their own predictive models! Why is this beneficial? “Predictive modeling is critically important to the insurance industry, and its use in the industry continues to expand across lines of business and across insurance company operations,” states Chris Gross, CEO of Gross Consulting. While becoming familiar working with predictive models, students will develop valuable skills that can be added to their resumes and incorporated into talking points during job interviews!
So how can students get started? CAS Student Central members can access the software via the Career Resources tab. There they will find the software available for download, along with a dataset pulled from the website Kaggle.com, and three videos that orient them on getting started with MultiRate, and interpreting MultiRate results. Not a CAS Student Central member yet? Join today to gain access to this valuable resource.
