The Data Quality Challenge


According to Harvard Business Review, bad data may cost the U.S. economy up to $3 trillion dollars per year. What is it costing you and your organization? We tried to find out, and so can you. Among other things, this webinar will present results of a recent experiment where we took well-behaved data, imposed a variety of defects, and challenged actuarial students to solve a ratemaking/modeling problem with it - in order to learn how effectively different defects are detected and addressed. We will then generalize the conversation to areas where data quality efforts may add versus drain value in a live business environment, and debate ideas for how we can better rise to the data quality challenge!

Intended Audience:
This webinar will be of interest to those that work in data management, predictive modeling, programming/software development and research/teaching.
