Beyond sample-splitting: valid inference while “double-dipping”

Wednesday, November 4, 2020 — 9:00 PM EST

The READI Project (Risk Management, Economic Sustainability, and Actuarial Science Development in Indonesia) is a project funded by the Government of Canada (Global Affairs Canada), Manulife Indonesia, and Sun Life Financial and implemented by the University of Waterloo in collaboration with the Financial Services Authority (OJK). The main objective of the READI Project is to make Indonesia a regional center of excellence in actuarial science and risk management.

As the READI project comes to an end, this event will give appreciation to all of the READI Project partners, share experiences and lessons learned from the results achieved by the READI Project with partners in order to advance actuarial science in Indonesia. As well as increase the commitment of related parties (government, universities, actuarial professional organizations, and industry) to support actuarial development in Indonesia in the future.

When: Wednesday, Nov 4, 2020 09:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
