Generalized Linear Models (GLMs) have been widely used in the insurance industry for the past 40 years. Its transparency and easy interpretation are the key factors that resonate with actuarial needs. In this webinar, we will talk about an extension of GLMs, Generalized Additive Models (GAMs), which allow us to capture any trend, not necessarily linear, and how applying new techniques such as penalized optimization can help automate model creation, while maintaining the level of transparency needed in insurance pricing.
