12/12/2016 - SoMeRiS 2016 workshop
The DaScIS (Data Science in the insurance Sector) Chair successfully organized SoMeRiS 2016 workshop on December 12th, colocated with the IEEE International Conference on Data Mining series (ICDM).
The topic of risk assessment deals with methods, quantitative or qualitative, to estimate the risk that is related to a specific task or action. As life becomes increasingly digital, the available social media data - including interactions, time, location and behavior - is constantly increasing, giving rise to quantitative methods from the broad field of data science towards "better" risk assessment. The main goal of the SoMeRis workshop is to act as a venue for research methods and tools on the emerging field of data science and social media analytics for risk assessment and management.
