Data Science at Zurich: The Whole is More Than the Sum of its Parts
At Zurich we have invested heavily in building an industry-leading data science and advanced analytics capability. I will cover our pioneering use of external and open data, and how valuable this data is to data science work when used together. I discuss how we have fostered a working environment inspired by academia, and the collaborations we have been establishing with local Universities to ensure our team reach their full potential. Finally, I will cover the innovative new ideas and ways of thinking we have brought to the business.
