Why did I do this show: I think the actuarial profession is at a very interesting transition point and also caught between new and old school data science. Tradition is their source of institutional strength but they are at a branding deficit compared to mainstream “AI”. Jessica embodies a way forward and she’s the president of the CAS!

What did I learn: I learned that there is a plan at the CAS! Jessica is launching a deliberate effort to move the profession forward

What was my favorite part: I got the chance to touch on the debate that I never got to have about the potential merging of actuarial professions. Someday to revisit I am sure!
