The CAS Institute (iCAS), the Society of Actuaries (SOA), and the CIA are joining forces to launch the Predictive Analytics Hack-A-Thon in conjunction with the joint Predictive Analytics Seminar on June 9, 2022. The competition will take place on the Kaggle platform during the weekend of May 13–15, 2022.

All competitors who are members of one of the sponsoring organizations will be invited to join a session during the Predictive Analytics Seminar to connect with others who participated and uncover how the winner(s) of each level arrived at the best prediction. Registration closes on May 9.

Prizes for the winner(s) of the competition:
