Abstract: The partnership between AFI and UW-Madison around data science projects led to the creation of the American Family Insurance Data Science Institute this Spring. The institute’s mission is to perform cutting-edge research in the fundamentals of data science and to catalyze the translation of this research into practice to advance scientific discovery in collaboration with researchers across campus and beyond. I will describe progress in creating an exciting collaborative space, with a vision to broadly elevate data science research to our mutual benefit.
