École Polytechnique and AXA launch a Chair on “Data Science for Insurance Sector”

École Polytechnique and AXA announce the launch of the Academic and Research Chair entitled "Data Science for Insurance Sector". This Chair, held by Michalis Vazirgiannis, will be devoted to the development of data sciences. It will support research done on this topic in École Polytechnique laboratories and will strengthen academic programs by providing students with real cases of data science studies in the insurance sector.

Data science is going to drastically change the insurance industry. Through the analysis and exploitation of massive data, the possibilities opened up by Big Data will have a long-term impact on the market. Data science will allow insurance companies to offer better services individually adjusted to the uses and needs of its beneficiaries. Because it is crucial to train and attract students to those new data science jobs in the insurance sector, École Polytechnique and AXA Group, via its subsidiary AXA Global Direct, decided to collaborate on this topic.
